How To Unlock The Framerate On Dead Rising 3: Apocalypse Edition For PC

dead_rising_3_game-wide

Dead Rising 3 arrives on PCs tomorrow, but with one major caveat: it’s locked to just 30FPS, which is the same as the console version. For most PC gamers this is a punishing blow, but never fear because you can unlock the framerate, allowing you to hold a higher FPS, assuming your hardware is up to it.

And that’s a big assumption because Dead Rising 3 requires some serious power to even maintain 30FPS:

Minimum System Requirements:
OS: Windows 7 64-bit edition, Windows 8 64-bit edition
Processor: Intel Core i3-3220 @ 3.30GHz (or Intel Core 2 Quad Q9550 @ 2.83GHz) / AMD Phenom II X4 945 @ 3.00 GHz or higher
Memory: 6 GB RAM
Hard Drive: 30 GB free
Video Card: NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 570 / AMD Radeon 7870 or higher
DirectX: Version 11
Controller: Keyboard (international and standard), Mouse (up to 4 buttons), Xbox 360 PC compatible controller or compatible gamepad
Connection: Broadband internet connection and Steam account required

Recommended System Requirements:
OS: Windows 7 64-bit edition, Windows 8 64-bit edition
Processor: Intel Core i5-4570 CPU @ 3.20GHz or AMD equivalent
Memory: 8 GB RAM
Hard Drive: 30 GB free
Video Card: NVIDIA® GeForce GTX 670 2GB / AMD Radeon 7970 2GB
DirectX: Version 11.1 or greater

On the other hand, even at low settings it looks quite lovely.

So, if you feel you have an adequate machine, here’s how to unlock the framerate. First navigate to the folder containing the deadrising3.exe. For windows 8/8.1 users this will likely be at   C: Program Files (x86) \ Steam \ Steam Apps \ Common \ deadrising3, assuming that Steam is installed on your primary drive.

Once you’re in the folder simply click on an empty space within it, and then choose to place a new text document. Open up the text document and enter the following line, minus the quotation marks: “gmpcr_unlock_frame_rate = True”

Now simply save the file as user.ini and exit. Boot up Dead Rising 3 and your frame-rate cap should have been removed, allowing you to potentially maintain 60FPS or more, depending on your computer’s specs. Keep in mind that Capcom have previous stated going above 30FPS may cause some problems.
