Frame Limiter Question

Recommended Posts

Shpati

Have a question about the frame limiter setting. I put it off and the game runs much smoother. My frame rate will be around 60. However, when it is off weather will be fine and sunny than it well be raining. This will happen every 5-10 seconds. it keeps on switching. Can someone help me out?

The frame limiter seems to do very strange things in Vice City, especially with boats. Can't remember whether this happens when it's on or off, but one one setting, the speedboats go too slowly to complete timed missions, but on the other, they skip across the waves like a speedboat should, making the missions far easier. Also, the jingle on the Ice Cream van doesn't work on one or other of the frame limiter settings. The patch didn't seem to help.

On faster and newer computers, having the Frame Limiter ON is the best option. There are less glitches and such with it on.

On slower and older computers, having the Frame Limiter OFF is the better option, there is less lag and isn't as glitchy as the new computers with Frame Limiter on.

 

I tested it myself.

Well I fixed my problem. I changed my graphics card settings and made vertical sync always on. Now I play Vice City at around a 60 frame rate when nothing heavy is going on (no frame limiter). With the frame limiter I could only get a frame rate of 30 max. A difference of 30 frames makes the game really smooth.

Frame Limiter locks the game onto 30 FPS, so that's why. Frame Limiter Off is a bit glitchy on some computers, and the FPS jumps around a lot with it off, as the FPS isn't "locked".
