It’s not everyday that PC gamers are treated horrribly. Well… actually… it mostly is. PC gamers have a pretty bad rep as being snotty and overly pushy about how consoles ruin the market and that generally brings a lot of hate from console users but for the first time in recent memory, a developer has spat in the face of the PC users.
Early this morning, pretty much at midnight, PC gamers started having horrible problems with the Batman: Arkham Knight PC port.
Fans who were looking forward to the final chapter in the series were greeted with a 30 FPS cap, which is just stupid to do to PC gamers considering most of their rigs can handle 100 FPS.
In addition to this, the newest updates to the graphics performance for Nividia and AMD proved to be worthless as the FPS was kept steadily below the 30 FPS mark and often would drop for no reason.
To add to this horrible turn of events, many PC review sites weren’t even given a code to review the game early, namely PCgamer.com. The biggest of the PC gamer review sites wasn’t even given a code so that suggestes Rocksteady probably knew about the problems and were just preparing for the worst.
There has been a manual fix for the FPS problem and it is this:
Open up your Arkham Knight install directory and navigate to “\BmGame\Config\BmSystemSettings.ini”
In the config file, search for “Max_FPS=30” and change it to “Max_FPS=9999”.
That should fix those problems and thank you PC Gamer for sharing that!
We all hope the PC port is fixed in the mean time but remember PC gamers, who bought the game on Steam, you can now request a refund for any game so go get your money back!
