How to remove Batman: Arkham Knight's 30FPS limit

Holy frame cap!

Batman

If you've been experiencing stuttering or lagging playing the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight, don't rip off your Bat Cape in anger just yet: it may be fixable with a simple tweak.

As it turns out, the caped crusader's latest outing has launched with a 30FPS limit, which can be removed by editing the settings file located in the directory folder below:

"STEAM_INSTALL_FOLDER\Batman Arkham Knight\BmGame\Config\BmSystemSettings.ini"

Once you're in there, hit CTRL + F and search for "BmSystemsSettings.ini" for the line "Max_FPS=30" and change it to "Max_FPS=9999"

Good to go

Both Nvidia (GeForce 353.30) and AMD (Catalyst 15.6 Beta) have released new game drivers to coincide with Arkham Knight's launch, bringing performance and stability improvements.

AMD notes that Crossfire support has been disabled for the game while it works with Warner Brothers to "resolve the underlying issue" and will release an update once resolved.
