Metal Gear Solid V FPS Unlocking Guide


Metal Gear Solid V has been one of our favorite PC ports of 2015, setting a very high standard which other developers should follow. It performed very well on a wide range of hardware and was even able to be played maxed out at 4K with single GPU configurations, which is pretty rare these days. 

The largest issue with the PC version of the game was that it's framerate was locked to 60FPS, meaning that users of high refresh rate displays could not use their hardware to it's full potential, which is a real shame given how well this game runs. 

Now we have found a way to remove this game's framerate limit and thankfully this fix does not seem to have any impact on he game's Physics or create any other bugs in-game. 



To enable this fix you will first need to navigate to your Steam Configuration file folder, which will be in the following location. 




When inside this folder and open the "TPP_GRAPHICS_CONFIG" file in your favourate text editor. I personally use NotePad.


Find the line which says "framerate_control" : "Auto", and change it to "framerate_control" : "Variable", and then save the file.


"framerate_control" : "Auto",

Change to 

"framerate_control" : "Variable",


After you make this small edit your framerate will be unlimited, allowing you to see this game in 61+ Hz/FPS.


Please let us know on the OC3D Forums how this fix works for you and join the discussion on our Metal Gear Solid V Framerate Unlock on the OC3D Forums.
