Issues fixed[edit]

Low framerate on 144 Hz monitor (NVIDIA users)[edit]

This fix will allow you to play the game without having to change your monitor refresh rate in Windows.
Modify GPU control panel settings[2]
  1. Make sure your monitor refresh rate is set to 143.998 Hz in the Windows Display Settings.
  2. Next, open the NVIDIA control panel and go to 3D Settings->Manage 3D Settings.
  3. Select the Program Settings tab on the right and find Forager in the dropdown (add it if you don't see it).
  4. Select the following options:
    1. Max Frame Rate: On: 60 FPS
    2. Monitor Technology: Fixed Refresh
    3. Preferred refresh rate (Your Monitor Name Is Here): Application-controlled
    4. Vertical Sync: Use the 3D application setting
  5. Then, when inside Forager, turn V-sync OFF in the game's settings.

  1. 1.0 1.1 File/folder structure within this directory reflects the path(s) listed for Windows and/or Steam game data (use Wine regedit to access Windows registry paths). Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/751780/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (751780) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
