Mafia 3 30 FPS Lock - How to fix it

Mafia 3 isn’t officialy out yet, but some streamers and members of the press have received early copies. While they’re slowly trudging through the game at the moment, there’s one thing they agree on – the PC version has a frame limit.

It works with a FPS lock that cannot be removed from the in-game settings. In this guide, we’re going to show you how to remove Mafia 3 30 FPS lock, once there is a solution.

How to unlock Mafia 3 framerate

  • No FPS Cap Mode – Removes the 30fps cap on the game. Contains recompiled game exe and launcher exe with edited framelimiter parameters. Will cause crashes for some people because the engine loses stability above the cap the developer imposed.
  • Ini file changesPC being what it is, it might be that the setting can be easily changed by editing an .ini file Unfortunately, editing .ini file hasn’t changed anything.
  • Patch coming this weekend– There is a statement on the official website:
    “We currently have a patch running here at the studio that includes 30, 60, and unlimited frames-per-second options in the video menu, among other improvements for the PC version of Mafia III. We’re verifying the patch now to ensure everything is working as expected. If everything goes well, we expect the update to go live this weekend. We will be keeping the PC community up-to-date on the status of the patch throughout the weekend and thank you for all the feedback!”
  • Improvements – While you are waiting for the patch you can improve your gameplay by turning vsync off, and reducing anti-aliasing to low (it’ll make it less blurry).
We’ll certainly update the guide with any solutions that come up as soon as we spot them. Hopefully new patch will make us all forget this ever happened.

          You know your comment just proves how much of a virgin you are? When you resort to using l33t in your comments it makes you an instant douchebag a.k.a 12 year old fucktard.

            well, it’s me again. actually, I am 21 years old and I love it to trigger people like you. the article is useless garbage and click-bait. it didn’t tell me “How to fix it”. I destroyed your invalid point with actually replying to you as a normal person. Where the f*ck are you from? virgins are normal people like me and me (yes, I didn’t include you because you are a subhuman who thinks virginity proves something. better lose it fast frat boy. hahaha) I won’t reply again so just take it like a grown boy and don’t reply/waste my time. bye.
