The new remaster of Nier Replicant has solely been with us just a few days, and already a modder has discovered a strategy to unlock the frame-rate. A brand new mod for the RPG game enables you to play it at above 60 frames-per-second.
The addon is available on Nexus, and using it can put the action-adventure game into “superspeed”. To use it, all you must do is extract it into your Steam apps Nier Replicant folder, wherever the .exe file is. then, you simply go into dinput8.ini, and set no matter frame-rate you need. Creators Ersh and SkacikPL say they’ve examined as much as 360 on a 144hz display screen with out a lot challenge.
An inventory of the recognized issues is offered, and you may anticipate the mouse sensitivity and UI animations to be a bit of wonky, as nicely some slowdown in participant motion, as a result of means Nier Replicant inherently handles greater frame-rates. You don’t want efficiency enhancement software program Special Ok, a program that’s been used to optimise the Steam model of Nier: Automata amongst many others, however it’s endorsed, particularly should you’d wish to sort out different points.
Be conscious too, there seems to be an in-game barrier to maxing out your GPU. An RTX 2070 is prone to high out at 120 FPS, no matter what you do to your settings. You can discover out extra about this mod, and the Nier: Replicant neighborhood, via this Discord.

We spoke to producer Yosuke Saito about remastering the unique Nier. Our Ian Boudreau discovered his revisit to be a nice one, writing “despite its technical foibles, Nier Replicant is a rewarding and unique journey through what can feel like a sketchbook kept underneath a curious and creative teenager’s bed” in his review. As all the time, mod with warning.
