Sonic Frontiers Framerate Uncap [Cheat Engine Table]
Here's what I managed to get for a framerate uncap for Sonic Frontiers. It's normally capped at 60FPS, but my 6900XT has no issues going above 144FPS at 2560x1440 and maxed settings. You'll need Cheat Engine installed to use this.

Some notes regarding gameplay and cutscene quirks:

Note that cutscene animations (the non-FMV ones) still have animations that update at 30FPS, but particle effects and such animate fine, I (or someone else) may have to investigate this.

There is also some problems with Sonic's velocity not launching far enough in the 4-3 subspace level, which makes it unpassable unless you temporarily cap the framerate to 60 at the start of the level.

Using the light dash may cause Sonic to get stuck or for his movement to visibly lag in some scenarios.

Some cutscenes can have lip-syncing desyncs with the audio.

Also, PSA for those that already played the Switch version, dump your save using Checkpoint, and then copy the save folders over to "%appdata%\Sega\SonicFrontiers\steam\STEAMAPPIDHERE", making sure that the files have a .dat extension added to them.

Does this cause any physics related issues?

Any ideas if uncapping FPS helps with stuttering? I could see it maybe causing more stuttering also depending how intensive it is.
60 cap is insane for PC though.. that and the lack of graphics settings seem to indicate this is just a bad port

This actually made me cringe. The game is awesome but i want uncapped fps. I was looking forward to it on my 360hz monitor.

How do you make this work? Adding the process and ticking the Unlock Framerate, then changing the Value to 144 seems to change nothing.

make sure you turn vsync off and/or run in borderless windowed

Any chance you could do a table for 16:10 support or ultrawide at some point?

Borderless Windowed means no G-Sync in this case.. Shame.

Then use Special K to fix that, or upgrade to Windows 11 :)

You're a genius. This makes the game run beautifully, so beautifully in fact, that im not sure why sega decided to put a cap in the first place.

What does W11 have to do with this?

You can enable G-Sync for windowed games in the Nvidia control panel.

Windows 11 22H2 has Windowed Mode optimization for all D3D11 titles. Does the same thing as Special K has been doing for the past 8 years.

Don't ever enable that, it breaks software.
