Painkiller FPS limiter

Atom0s have made this great fix for painkiller: here[]

I've created a simple rar, with modification, that you can use directly (pk black 1.64): DOWNLOAD HERE[] or HERE[].

The default maxfps is now 120, for SinglePlayer, you can change it by writing in the console "/setmaxfps" and the number you want. After that the settings will be writed in the Config.ini in the Bin folder. Value 0 is unlimited, as default.

Modification are:



MaxFpsSP = 120,


MaxFpsMP = 120,





--AddAction({{"Wait:1"},{"L:StringToDo = 'Console:Cmd_EXPO()'"}})

Added also:





Find the line:

function Console:Cmd_SETMAXFPS(val)

Then replace:

if Game.GMode == GModes.MultiplayerClient then


if Game.GMode == GModes.MultiplayerServer or Game.GMode == GModes.MultiplayerClient then

Also add:

Cfg.MaxFpsSP = val


Cfg.MaxFpsMP = val

Just put the LScripts folder in the Data folder, enjoy!

If you mod the same files of the game like above, you can use it for other Painkiller games too (don't use that one, but mod them yourself).

@Panopticon Depends on your hardware, probably the gpu. I suggest you to play around 120fps or lower (144 if you have a 144hz monitor), but not more, the game don't like too much fps xD

thanks for your guide,I don't have to use setmaxfps everytimes I launch the game now
However I have a weird problem that is more hardware related but when the game fps are uncapped I can hear a high pitched noise coming from my GC(after some search I found it's called coil whine)
the problem appears even at 200 fps(but it's far more quiet)
Is it normal?

@De Seppe: this is just for limit fps in the game not to use vsync. Use 60fps limit on a 60hz monitor isn't like if you have a vsync.

This did not fix screentearing for me.
I was able to fix it using dgVoodoo Direct X to force VSync on.
Maybe you could add this to your guide?

@zii: there is a jumppad to go up from the downplace (where is also the driver electro weapon). If you take it with very high fps you will notice the phisic glitch.

@Peppins: I played the map and only found 1 gold armor but no jump pad and some areas I would randomly get stuck in and take damage but 1 area was a little tough to get in but I had to use shotgun to get boost and get red skull on top.

Alright I've never played a multiplayer map because servers are dead.

@zil: play a multiplayer map like Cursed and try to jump on the jump-pad to the gold armor zone, you can't with high fps xD

I get like easily over 1000 fps and I didn't mess with anything.
