>Blacklight: Retribution – How to Unlock FPS

>Big thanks to reader @tainted7oh7.  I had wanted to uncap the Unreal Engine and get to a seriously smooth 100+ fps, and now you can.  Here is what you do:

1.  On your C: drive (or whereever it installed) find (most likely in program files) Perfect World/Blacklight Retribution/FoxGame/Config/PCConsole/Cooked/PCConsole-FoxEngine

2. Open this file, should open in notepad and do a CTRL+ F to find “bSmoothFrameRate” set that to equal true.

3. right beneath this setting is minsmoothed and maxsmoothed, set maxsmoothed to like 1000 then save the file and set it to Read-only so the game can’t override it.

4.  Load into Blacklight.

Reader Tainted is now getting a silky smooth 200 fps.  I am trying this as soon as I can!  I am also trying to get an answer from jared to see if this can be an in game option.

    Lol, people need to join Blacklight forums that way you get this info sooner ;]. I posted this basically the day of CB1 launch, then I followed up in another thread with unknown team chat commands unreleased game modes etc. http://blacklight-forum.perfectworld.com/showthread.php?t=198791

    The Devs also replied and said it would be implemented in a patch, as above Exec Producer Andy Kipling said.

    If you’re gonna fudge around with config files, be ready to undo redo etc etc.

  2. CuriousGuy says:

    We’re in closed beta, wouldn’t setting it to read-only cause a problem later?

  3. Andy Kipling says:

    This should be a feature in the next patch.

  4. Jugs says:

    how do you set it to Read-only?

    • Eyrod says:

      Right click – Properties. Tick box Read only, should be next to Hidden

      Thanks for this Tainted. Makes the game so much better for me.
