How to Unlock the Framerate in Beyond Good & Evil 20th Anniversary Edition

60 FPS no more!

Beyond Good & Evil 20th Anniversary Edition is a remaster of the classic 2003 action-adventure game from Ubisoft. It’s out now on consoles and PC and runs quite well thanks to its low requirements. While the PC version has a few graphical settings to adjust, the framerate is locked at 60 FPS even if your system can handle higher frames. Thankfully, you can unlock the FPS in Beyond Good & Evil 20th Anniversary Edition with a simple configuration edit.

Unlocking the FPS in Beyond Good & Evil 20th Anniversary Edition

To unlock the framerate in Beyond Good & Evil 20th Anniversary Edition, you need to edit the BGE.player.ini file and add a custom limit.

By default, the framerate is locked at 60 FPS in Beyond Good and Evil 20th Anniversary Edition, but Steam user Timo654 has found a way to uncap it without affecting the game physics. Follow the steps below to use a custom value.

  • Head over to the following location on your PC
C:\Users\<username>\Saved Games\Beyond Good & Evil - 20th Anniversary Edition
  • Here, open the BGE.player.ini file using a text editor like Notepad or Notepad++
  • Under [Display], add the following line. Set the value to whatever FPS you want.
RefreshRate=120
  • For 4K, use the following line instead
RefreshRate_4K_PC=120
  • After that, add a new section at the bottom which looks like this:
[Time] 
MaxDt = 0.2666666666
MinDt = 0.0034722222
EnableFixedDt = false
  • The BGE.player.ini should now look like this:
  • Save the file (Ctrl + S) and exit out

That’s all you need to do, and the next time you launch Beyond Good & Evil 20th Anniversary Edition, it will run at the FPS you’ve set. Here, in our case, we have set it to 120 FPS, and you can see it’s getting a locked FPS with perfect frametime as well.

While getting the game to run at a higher framerate than 60 FPS isn’t that difficult, we really hope that the developers patch the option. Most modern systems are more than capable of running the game at a framerate higher than 60 FPS, especially PC, and even the Steam Deck.
