Instructions to help fix things if you notice that your game is running at super speed.
How to Fix Game Speed Issue
Main Fix Instructions
Please note that this is for Windows, using an NVIDIA DGPU.
- Tested on Windows 10 Pro 64-bit using NVIDIA Control Panel 8.1.964.0
If you noticed that your game is running abnormally fast, you will need to lock the game framerate to fix things.
One indication that the game may be running too quickly, is the game isnt really playing many sound effects (sword swinging should have the MC yell, not just play the sword swing “whoosh”) when its going at super speed.
Im guessing the devs made the game on very old hardware (PC Gaming in Japan is very niche) and cant be bothered to implement a quick fix by just locking an FPS cap to 60.
You can use your GPU control panel to force a FPS limit.
- If you have an NVIDIA GPU, you can pull up NVIDIA Control Panel. (You should have the option if you right click on your desktop).
- Go to “3D Settings” then “Manage 3D settings”.
- Switch to the “Program Settings” tab.
- Select the Ruins Seeker game (its called “Game.exe”, lazy naming) you can hit the “Add” button and look for the game if you have opened it before.
- Find the “Max Frame Rate” option and set it to 60.
The game should look like this if you are using the “Add” option. I have my games installed on a separate drive, but it should give you a general idea of what to look for.
This will force the game to run at 60 FPS max and it should fix the super speed.
If you have an AMD DGPU, you should be able to do something similar with AMD Adrenalin. You can set the game specific settings for your graphics card, and set it to limit the FPS to 60.
I cannot say anything about Intel graphics options, since I am completely unfamiliar with their software.
I am not sure if there are any options to force graphics options for applications if you are using an IGPU. Look around your graphics control panel for whatever display output device you have and see if there are any options to force a frame rate limit to your applications.
The game looks to be built in RPG Maker (possibly, the menu looks like it, but I dont know what version and if the commands are different for each). I dont know the launch arguments for the engine. If you know the launch arguments for the engine, you can set them to limit the FPS to 60.
