USF4 PC Framerate Issues


Hi all,

Not sure if this is the right place for this as I see mostly hardware threads but…

I’m having framerate issues running full screen USF4 on PC. The framerate will jump randomly from 30 to 60 (or vice versa) during loading screens for no apparent reason. I have framerate set to fixed, and vsync set to off (I’ve tried it on as well…). When the framerate becomes 30, if I alt tab my screen it will go back to 60. If I run the game in windowed mode it is always 60 (so no problems at all, but the border of the window is really annoying and my taskbar sort of cuts into the screen on the bottom). When I run the benchmark tests my graphics card seems more than enough to run the game so I don’t think it’s an issue with the power of my video card. My card is an 2GB Nvidia GeForce GT 650M.

I’ve tried searching everywhere as it seems like some kind of simple settings issue, but I haven’t been able to find a solution.

Thanks for any help.


I am pretty new to this forum to, so I am not sure if its the right place either. hopefully a mod will move it to the right place.
Steam forums might have been better, but regardless I’ll try to help you.

First, I really recommend that you invest in a proper gaming desktop if you want a solid performance for pc games(cpu also plays a factor in fps).
2.check for driver updates
3. use lowest or default settings for the game
4. You can gain some insight from this guide :
Using your drivers vsync seems to be the most optimal solution for this game imo. I can’t think of anything else atm, going to bed, gl.
