Issues fixed[edit]

Run the game at screen refresh rate[edit]

Fullscreen mode defaults to 60 Hz, even if the screen refresh rate is set higher than that.
Set screen refresh rate and 60 FPS cap[3]
  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>\game\d3d9.ini or %USERPROFILE%\Documents\My Mods\SpecialK\Profiles\v2x.exe\SpecialK.ini depending on the installation method you used.
  4. Change TargetFPS=0.0 to TargetFPS=60.0.
  5. Change RefreshRate=-1 to RefreshRate=0.

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>/337180/ in addition to or instead of this directory. The app ID (337180) may differ in some cases. Treat backslashes as forward slashes. See the glossary page for details.
