120+ FPS
Locked at 60 FPS. Use cheat engine and search for 0.016666666666 as a float in rounded (extreme) mode while game.exe is selected in the memory search range and "Writable", "Executable" and "CopyOnWrite is set to "Don't Care"". Two of the values shown will be FPS related. Change both to 0.00277777 for 360 FPS. The game may stutter initially but will get stable after a few seconds. Using v-sync here is recommended. Forcing a refresh rate may be needed as well, see Widescreen notes. Hex editing these values may be possible on some executables; removing the need of following the above process each time the game is launched. Replace all instances of 89 88 88 3C with 3F 0B 36 3B (360 FPS).

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>/267550/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (267550) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
