Remove the Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain FPS Cap

Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain is one of those PC games that has a capped framerate. With some clever editing of files this cap can be removed by doing the following.

1. Go to your Steam folder (/ Program Files (x86) / Steam)

2. Open the userdata folder

3. Look for the folder number 287700

5. Click the Local folder and open TPP_GRAPHICS_CONFIG in notepad.

6. Now change “framerate_control” : “Auto” to “framerate_control” : “Variable”

7. Save and then launch the game.

The framerate should no longer be capped.
