Frame rate stuck at 45fps[edit]

note: a recent patch has negated this, disabling Vsync is all that is necessary now

Change AlternateSyncMethod to 1 and Vsync to ON
  1. Go to <path-to-game>\Nidhogg and open options.ini.
  2. Change AlternateSyncMethod to 1.
  3. Launch the game, then change Vsync to ON.

Notes

  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>/94400/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (94400) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
