Framerate = game speed. Sadly, it's that simple.
Game too slow ? Try to reduce graphic settings and/or resolution.
Game too fast ? Use max settings, vsync (60 Hz) and/or frame limiter.

framerate does not mean game speed, you are wrong. Framerate is how many images or frames (duh!) of the game you see in a second. The problem here is that the game is slo-mo even at high framerates, I alerady posted this, a game slomo at 30 fps is still slomo. 60 fps only butter smooth the image but doesnt affeg the game speed.

You can check if your game is running slomo with the ingame timers. Theres a mission where you have to collect x ammount of coins in 30 seconds. You can see if your timer is running slower than actual real life seconds. Thats how I realized my game was slomo.

I'm only saying that's how it works for Joe Danger - as opposed to pretty much all other games.

On my computer it goes like this:
1920x1080 = High framerate (90+ fps), Joe moves incredibly fast; unplayable.
1920x1080 w/ frame limiter = 60 fps, gameplay feels normal.
5760x1080 + multiplayer = low framerate (~35fps), gameplay is slowed down (not just choppy).

omfg, you are a genius, wow i cant believe this, for some strange reason, the framerate determines the gamespeed for joe danger, i used to cap my game sto 35 fps in order to avoid choppy gameplay but in joe danger i cap it at60 and now it plays at normal speed, devs should look into this,

i apologize for my last comment i had no idea this is how THIS game worked.

No problem, thanks for helping me clarify my meaning :)

A 5760x1080 SCREEN? Wow...and I was impressed by my 1366x768...

forgive me for sounding stupid, but im confused. I can max out crysis 3 in 3d at 1080p, but I need to lower settings to play joe danger to get a good framerate since it runs slow as heck for me? sorry for sounding dumb.

5760x1080 is three 1920x1080 monitors combined using Nvidia Surround.

Eagle, this is indeed confusing, but you'd better ask Hello Games... I suppose they overlooked some important PC facts when porting their 30-fps console-friendly engine to our mighty platform !

Oh...still, only one is bigger than mine, and why would you need three? My friend has two, one displays the desktop and the other displays the current window being used.

Funny how I was looking at your comment while watching 2 IN THE AM PM.

OMG I have a 120Hz monitor I was wondering how can anyone play this game cause it was SOO hard, I'm always crashing because of the speed. After playing for half an hour I went to youtube to see how people did it and all the videos seemed in slow motion -.- now this explains it... I already had this framerate problem with other games (p.e. an old Pro Evolution Soccer)...
