Is Nier Replicant running at extremely high speed for you? Don’t worry here are some fixes.

Nier Replicant – Game running too fast – How to Cap FPS

Nier Replicant came out just a while ago and the game is doing fine so far. The only problem is there are a lot of small bugs in the game that are irking the players. Some of those bugs could be easily fixed while some need attention from the developers.

The bug we are addressing here is actually a strange one. People are calling it the “high speed” bug. So what is this bug all about?

Well, this bug is causing the game to run very fast. Now by fast I don’t mean more fps. It feels like that animations of the game have been sped up by 2X or 3X from the normal speed. Basically the physics of the game is tied to the in-game FPS. The more fps you get, the faster the game will run. A really weird issue if you ask me.

This is actually quite frustrating as this is completely stopping players from enjoying the game. The high speed is making the bosses in the game extremely hard and tough to beat.

How to fix this bug

Fortunately quite a number of fixes have been mentioned on the steam discussions page of Nier Replicant. And a lot of players have actually approved these fixes. Here are some:

Set an FPS Cap

A lot of users are saying that capping the fps of the game to 60 fps fixed the issue for them. Here is how to to do it:

  1. Just go to your Nvidia Control Panel
  2. Select Manage 3D Settings
  3. Look for the setting called “Max Frame Rate”
  4. Turn it on and set it to ’59 FPS’ with the help of the slider
    Nvidia control panel fps cap

If you have an AMD card, use the Radeon Software to activate Radeon Chill and set the max FPS to 60.

You can actually use any suitable utility you want to cap the fps.

Set monitor refresh rate to 60hz

A lot of users with high refresh rate monitors have managed to fix this issue by just changing the native resolution of their monitor from 144hz or 240hz to 60hz. Though this is something that I personally don’t recommend. As fiddling with monitor refresh rates is not a good idea. But if nothing else works for you, try this.
