Low FPS#

If you are encountering Low FPS you can try these steps to increase it.

Method 1 (fullscreen optimization)#

1. Open the Plutonium Launcher's bin folder. You can do this by pressing Windows Key + R and typing %localappdata%\Plutonium\bin


2. Right click plutonium-bootstrapper-win32.exe -> properties -> compatibility -> tick the "disable fullscreen optimizations" box.


Method 2 (laptops with two GPUs)#

1. Open your windows settings -> System -> Display -> Graphics settings (on the bottom)

2. Click Browse and navigate to C:\Users\YOURUSERNAME\AppData\Local\Plutonium\bin (you may have to enable "show hidden files and folders" in the windows explorer options to see the "AppData" folder)



3. Select plutonium-bootstrapper-win32.exe and hit the options button


4. Select your high performance/dedicated gpu and hit save


Method 3 (capping the game FPS)#

  1. Open the console

  2. Type com_maxfps 60 and press Enter (Replace 60 by your monitor refresh rate) (Don't go above 250 as higher values are known to cause instability)

Method 4 (updating GPU drivers)#

Keeping your GPU drivers up-to-date is important for performance and stability. See this guide

Method 5 (lowering video settings)#

Some computers can't handle higher graphics, lowering your graphics settings in game may help on weaker computers.

You can also try switching between windowed borderless mode, fullscreen, and normal windowed mode. Try switching between them to see if one gives you more FPS.
