PAYDAY: The Heist

Frame rate problems regardless of low or high settings
I have i7 930 9 gig trichannel 5870 1 gig and have no issues running games at high settings, however when i start the game it says the fps are 130 yet when i play its very laggy like the fps are 25, which is my next problem. I put vsync on and it drops the fps to 25 and plays exactly the same as if it was off almost. If anyone knows a suggestion please let me know its a good game just runs really sluggish. I have updated driver 12.10 no problems any other game, tried the mouse lag thing that others posted nothing seems to make the game play better, 1920x1080 resolution also. The only time it played well was when the game first started it was very smooth but that i changed the resolution and it got very sluggish, i did try to change it lower which in the 2 years i have had this pc i have never had to do but this but still didn't do anything.

Any help would be appreciated.

go to appdata\local\payday and open renderer_settings.xml. At the end of the list of resolutions add a line for your resolution and refresh rate (1920x1080x60) and relaunch the game. Select the new resolution and disable Vsync.

OMG , i leveled to level 193 with 25 refresh rate , and only now i find your solution.
Playing with 60+ fps is just amazing compared to 25 , you made my day :D

I know I'm late to this but thank you anyway. I had this issue on a i7 920 (4.0GHz) and GTX 680 SC and couldn't figure out why my Core2 Extreme with Dual 9800 GTX was playing smoother than by faster rig!

where do i find "appdata\local\payday" to open renderer_settings.xml?
chris.boney Apr 14, 2014 @ 5:44am 
ahh... found it.. gonna give it a try.

i tried over and over again to insert a new res for the game, and it just wouldnt show on the list in-game.
so what i did was insert the new res (640x480x60) at the top of the renderer list and then inserted it into the "brackets",, near the end of the script code. now it works fine and the graphics + on-screen info such as ammo and health avatar and such are a lot bigger. it has smoothed out the game a lot, but its not perfect.... but it plays a WHOLE lot better!
gotta work on a laser mouse config set-up to get the best out of the aiming system..

(i personaly,, compare all fps shooters to the near-perfect and smooth playing "feel" of Killing Floor).

Thanks for the help...;))

you was right rasman.. ya topic got locked off....

this was my last comment i typed,, but never got to post it..

"new hacks for new games are always going to be controversial. simply because of the top dolla price you pay for the title.
i love hacks,, or "game edits",, they instantly provide you with an alternative out look on the game, and the game thus becomes a "parralel universe" of the original. thus expanding the life of the game to an almost infinite level.. (pun intended).
hacks dont destroy a game... its the ppl you rob you of the freedom of choice,,,, the freedom of choice to travel the "default journey" that hurts more,,, than the lost dolla value and depreciation that ones pocket feels,,, when youve been "teleported" to the "finish line".. or given a 1000 mile an hour jet plane to travel in,, instead of a three wheeler tricycle..... or a pair of walking shoes.".

They will just keep my money, im out of here.
My blog will stay online as long as wordpress exists.

For notting getting any answer, from anybody, anywhere, im promisse myself right now, im gona post about this problem every week, for as long as i have patience for it.

Thats all i can do to dont feel like they are just smiling reading this.

But almost 30 people came to read my blog right now, so if only 20 of this, dont buy the game, im already happy, my 25dolars worthed to learn about this company, and to tell people to just DONT buy anything from then anymore.

This hacks will stay forever, they dont care about me, or about you, or about your friend, as long as money keep flowing.

Cya Chris, im tired of this, i know this people wont give me any atention, by the simple fact that they are unable to do anything to solve this problem.

And im REALLY sure they wont give me my money back.


Im just gona spread my blog.

I already feel better because 4 friends of mine alreayd wont buy the game.

Im gona keep my work here, since they dont nothing at theirs.

Welcome to the real world, be very careful where do you spend money, because this days, they companys are more "Law-protected" then regular people.

So they control this world, and they just wont give you the money back, not because they cant, but because they dont want to do it, and because theres stupid laws protecting this corporations..

So, stay sharp, try to learn about the game before buying it, thats what i learned with my wasted 25$

Best regards dude.

Thank you for your understanding, i guess we still have some smart people in this world.
