How to Change FPS from 30 to 60 / 120
By Cryptor!
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[en.wikipedia.org]

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!

you can´t edit the values in your config file ? Check if read/write protection is on. Try to open it in Wordpad and change them step by step.

Do you have a fix for Settings? They wont change

it´s a simple PC port so we can be happy that this game was even released for PC :) but i´ll share your opinion a little bit but we don´t "Fix" things , we just try to make that game a bit more better ^^

This shoudn't be neccesary. Fps-locks are not okay, and the ability to mod it away doesn't make it okay. It means they are making money on what is essentially an incomplete product, and we're GIVING them money so that we can fix it FOR them.

30 FPS is sure playable but having more FPS if it´s possible....why not :) ( and smoother gameplay / eye friendly for some users ^^ )

I feel like im the only one who doesnt give a shit about the frame rate being 30fps. Sure its bad for some people (30fps lock on PC is ridiculous! 60 lock isnt that bad though) I guess I can understand it though. Especially for a Hack n Slash game

just from the specs it should be absolutely no problem to run it. Could you test something out ? Open the task Manager while KiD is running and go to " Processes " and right click the KiD.exe and choose " Processor Affinity " and add some Cores to KiD or remove some cores from KiD.

it sounds pretty odd ..........worked fine for me even with the new System.
