Double Fine's Future plans - 30 fps lock removal?
Now that Double Fine has regained the rights to this game, are there any future plans for updates or DLC? The number one thing on my wishlist is to remove the 30 fps lock like was done with Brutal Legend.

Am I dreaming ?
1.4 GB update today, the whole game was downloaded anew and now I can get 60 fps ! Can anybody confirm ?

No updates here.

I have downloaded it some days ago for first time and i get 60 fps after pause/unpause

Definitely not working here. Always locked at 30 fps.

I've been hoping for a >30 FPS patch ever since Stacking was released. They've made promises about this multiple times, but I'm pretty skeptical at this point.

Can anyone confirm if that's what the patch did?

Bought Stacking yesterday via Humble Bundle, Still locked @ 30fps.

If you have FRAPS or some other frame rate counter running it will show 60fps but trust me it doesn't feel like it, It was also mentioned the game is repeating each frame twice which fools FPS counters when in reality its 30fps, you can especially tell when looking around with the mouse, camera movement is a little jerky.

If it's rendering every frame twice it definitely doesn't display both of them. I have a rather unique situation of having a dead pixel on my monitor that flickers at <30 fps with nVidia G-sync activated and this game triggers that behavior.

so any news about this? i just installed the game and it looks terrible. It definitely doesn't run at 60 fps no matter what fraps says. Did they release any patch or is there any config file to mess with? Nobody got a fix for this ???

From the Double Fine FAQ:

"- Stacking is locked to a max of 30 fps. This makes me very angry. What can I do about it?

As of this writing, Stacking is a faithful port of the console version and is capped to 30 fps. There is no way to work around this setting, but Double Fine is trying to find the time to modify our engine to support uncapped rendering. If and when we do this, it will be made available on all Buddha engine games (Stacking, CQ, etc).".

The FPS lock was removed when Brutal Legend was released, I don't think it's happening for these older games.

I can kinda see the aesthetic benefit of 30fps for this game (tying inwith the whole silent movie early 1900's thing), but it would be nice to have the option to remove it. The jerkyness of the motion is a little jarring after a while.

When running this without vsync I get 200+fps (GTX770) but when panning the camera and moving around the world, you can certainly tell the actual in-engine rate is around 30.

30 FPS provides no benefit. I've also started to watch movies at 144 FPS with SmoothVideo Project (SVP)?

I disagree. For me it's playing into the historical aesthetic of the game, a bit like watching movies in their original black and white etc.

But then I absolutely hate the smoothing algorythms used in most TVs these days. To me it makes everything look like a soap opera! I'm probably a bit old-fashined!

Guess it all comes down to personal preference, which is why I do agree that it would be beneficial to be able to opt-out of this lock in Stacking. the 30fps hurts my eyes after a while for some reason...

We all do? I don't like motion blur in any form.
