The team behind RPCS3, the best Playstation 3 emulator that is currently under development, has released a video, showing the first NieR game running with 60fps. NieR was a 30fps game on Playstation 3 and RPCS3 is able to overcome this framerate limitation, proving once again why emulators are so important.
NieR is not the only 30fps locked PS3 game that can run with 60fps on RPCS3. Demon’s Souls, Persona 5, Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F and Hatsune Miku: Project Diva F 2nd are also games that can now run with 60fps on this Playstation 3 emulator.
As the RPCS3 team noted:
“Remember that NieR requires Write Color Buffers to be enabled, and the FPS to be capped in RPCS3’s settings, use the 30fps cap if you’re not using the patch and 60fps cap if you are. You will likely want to create a custom configuration for NieR as well, then open the custom configuration config.yml file (right-click the game and click “configure” then hit “save” now, right-click it again and press “open custom configuration folder”) now just open the config file with your gameID, search for “Sleep timers Accuracy” and change it from “Host” to “Usleep”, save the file and you’re ready to go! In the future this shouldn’t be necessary.”
