Issues fixed[edit]

Run the game at screen refresh rate[edit]

Resolutions higher than 1024x768 are locked to 60 Hz, 1024x768 and below have a maximum of 100 Hz.
Set screen refresh rate[citation needed]
  1. Install Special K by following the Special K Unofficial Guide. Manual local installation may work better.
  2. Start the game once and close it to allow the configuration file of Special K to be created.
  3. Open <path-to-game>\d3d9.ini or %USERPROFILE%\Documents\My Mods\SpecialK\Profiles\RW.exe\SpecialK.ini depending on the installation method you used.
  4. Change RefreshRate=-1 to RefreshRate=0 under [Render.FrameRate].
  5. Run the game as administrator if it's not starting properly.

Force Vsync to work[edit]

The game has vsync set by default but even with FPS fixed to monitor refresh it still does not work (Windows 10, AMD card). Forcing in AMd control panel makes no difference.
Force Vsync with D3doverrider.exe
  1. Download D3doverrider.exe here.
  2. Setup instructions are on this page.

Games with Steam Cloud support may store data in ~/.steam/steam/userdata/<user-id>/22310/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (22310) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
