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 14.12.2014 )
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.

Update #2 - Possible QTE Fix for [60FPS+] - 14.12.2014

i tried to find a good setting for a long time and i think i got a "acceptable" solution for the QTE Problems that some of you have.It worked for me up to 75 FPS and after that the Problem is returning again.

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

> DefaultGame.ini

right at the beginning of the .ini file change your standard values with my values.

- ;massageで回復するレート
mRevive_MassageRecoveryRate = 2.8
- ;massageによるHealth が下がるレート
mRevive_MassageHealtDownRate = 0.95
mRevive_MassageDownPowerMax = 18.5

Please write down some feeback or ask questions if problems occur or anything!

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


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.

Planned changes ( January 2015 > )

-> rewriting the guide to make it more clearly
-> changing some options to eliminate gameplay issues like QTE / Attacks etc.

and remember ! Killer is Dead !

I'd like to ask the author if you'd allow me to translate your guide to brazilian portuguese (PT-BR), creating another guide, putting the credits and links to the creator/original guide.

There are different QTE values on PCGamingWiki.
Maybe the best? Cant tell though.

i know i know......it´s not needed to take a look at the defaultgame and kidengine.ini because there isn´t much about the attacks in depth. I will take a deeper look at it soon.

It's either in KidEngine.ini or DefaultGame.ini something along the lines of "perfect guard" or something like "amount of time that perfect guard is active after pressing button"
Cryptor!  [author] Dec 14 @ 10:41am 
couldn´t find the lines for perfect guard or parry so far :/. If someone wants to help then do it ! :) Let´s work together to make this game more enjoyable.

@infmelon - thank you for that info! KiD is not installed at the moment but i´ll keep an eye on it and i will add it then.Just need to find some time soon.

thanks for the fix, you might want to add that the window for "perfect guard" or "parry" is also changeable so that it actually scales according to 60/120 fps.

good luck parrying anything at 120fps without changing that
