Issues fixed[edit]

Run the game at screen refresh rate[edit]

The game may default your monitor's refresh rate to 60 Hz or 100 Hz. This will result in reduced smoothness on high refresh rate monitors even if the internal GPU render shows a high FPS.
Set screen refresh rate[citation needed]
  1. Install Special K by following the Special K Unofficial Guide.
  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\Shellshock 2.exe\SpecialK.ini depending on the installation method you used.
  4. Change RefreshRate=-1 to RefreshRate=0 under [Render.FrameRate].

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>/8160/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (8160) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
