Here´s the English Version how to change the locked FPS in Killer is Dead.I think nobody wants to play with 30 FPS on PC so let´s Enjoy our Game in more than 30 FPS.

I updated the Guide a few Times and there is also a brazilian-portuguese Translation of it.Please Report Issues and Solutions. Any Help to improve the game would be appreciated!

Enjoy your Game !
How to Change the FPS ( Updated 04.01.2015 )

Go to your "Killer is Dead" folder and find the KidEngine.ini

Folder Path: C:Programs (x86) > Steam > Steamapps > common > Killer is Dead > Kid Game > Config > KidEngine.ini



Open up the KidEngine.ini file and find the line "bSmoothFrameRate" and "MaxSmoothedFrameRate"



Useful Information

"bSmoothFrameRate" has a similar function ( or is maybe the same ) as Vertical Synchronization[]

I suggest you to change the values like i did. In this case...

"bSmoothFrameRate" from TRUE ( enabled ) to FALSE ( disabled )

"MaxSmoothFrameRate" from 31 ( default ) to 60



Save the file and Start the Game. You can Launch FRAPS or another Program that displays FPS to check if the Game runs in 60FPS.


Tips and Other values that can be used.

FPS Values: 30 / 60 / 120 / 125

> You can aslo change only "MaxSmoothFramerate" without disabling VSYNC.


Possible Fix for Quick time Events [60FPS+]

For all users with Impossible QTE´s after changing to 60FPS and a lil bit above. After testing things out for some time i maybe found an "acceptable" solution to fix the QTE´s.This small Fix worked up to 75FPS.

Go to your KID Folder. C:Programs (x86) > Steam > Steamapps > common > Killer is Dead > Kid Game > Config > DefaultGame.ini

At the beginning you will find the Informations that we need to get the Problem fixed. Just change the values and replace the standard ones 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 if you still have Problems or if you have a more solid solution to fix the QTE´s!

I'm still having issues with the frame rate.

sadly yes! it affects pretty much everything where accurate timing is needed. There's no solution for it so far. If anyone knows how to edit the files to prevent it then it would be awesome.

Maybe you can set a command or something to activate/deactivate the FPS ingame but i'll never tried. Sorry Boxcutter.

Outside of qte's, does this affect other timings and interactions, like just guard and dodge? I had a weird problem with Sebastian's 2nd form. Bats would semi-randomly melt my health in half a second when I tried to slash him from below, didn't feel intentional.
