  2. Make a backup of Engine.ini.
  3. Replace with the following file. Link here. (File Updated 12/2/2024, old file caused slowdown -- it used to fix slowdown in CBT/CNT)
  4. This file also contains different settings for Bloom, Motion Blur, and Anti-Aliasing. Please modify with a number from 0-3 as you see fit.

Unlock FPS + Minor fixes

Tekken 8 is locked to 60 FPS, TekkenOverlay unlocks and allows higher frame rate.
