How to Change FPS from 30 to 60 / 120
By Cryptor!
Hi there ! At the Moment i only saw a Russian guide for fixing the FPS in Killer is Dead. I´ll give you the English version :)

How to Change it ( Updated 07.07.2014 )
Just look out for your Killer is Dead Config file and edit one line.

C:Programs ( x86 ) > Steam > Steamapps > common > Killer is Dead > Kid Game > Config >

> KidEngine.ini

1. Open the .ini and search for "MaxSmoothedFrameRate" or "bSmoothFrameRate"

Now you can decide wich line you want to change. I edited the "MaxSmoothedFramerate" line.
Change the value from "30" to "60" or "120"


or change the bSmoothFrameRate" from " TRUE " to "FALSE" to disable VSYNC. After that you dont need to change it Ingame. It worked fine for me and finally it´s running super smooth with 120FPS.

If anyone got errors or problems with "120" FPS just change it to "60". If i did something wrong with the explanation just write it down. I hope it´s working fine for you all. Please Report if it´s not working correctly for you with these Settings above! I´ll try to help.

> By running the game in 60 & 120 FPS , is there still a Problem with the difficulty ? ( it get´s harder with increased framerates )

> A Guide by "Dinjoralo" will help you to fix Mikas reviving part. Thanks!


> I found some cfg´s with all Bossfights. Same path as KidEngine.ini

- KidBoss_Alice
- KidBoss_David1
- KidBoss_David2
- KidBoss_Dolly
- KidBoss_GiantHead
- KidBoss_Sebastian
- KidBoss_Thomas
- KidBoss_Tokio
- KidBoss_Victor

Errors , Freezes etc. and possible Solution

Gigolo Mode:
> Freeze "Kotaru"
- Changing back to 30 might will help. ( jchunter93 )

Maybe someone will find some useful lines.

and remember ! Killer is Dead !

Well "read only" does the job. I can play at 60fps so it's ok ;)

then try it again with Wordpad. Never had Problems editing with the normal notepad. Maybe you need to edit some Windows settings ( folder security and acess options by rightclicking the file > properties > Security Tab )........i dont know. Can´t tell you what to do because i can´t see your windows setup and anything. So try it again and please write back if you found a stable solution for this Problem.

Yep i did modify with notepad and save it nnormally but everytime i launched the game it does come back to 30FPS. So i had to put it read only.

hmm diddn´t had that problem before. Are you editing with Wordpad or normal txt document ? i edited this file with a normal txt an then i just saved it.

Seems like you ha e to put the file read only fi you want it to keep the 60 FPS option. mine is back to 31 FPS everytime.
