CVar maxFPS

From Wowpedia
Jump to: navigation, search

This cvar sets the maximum FPS of a wow window while VSync is off (disabled). Just because you set this cvar to a certain value, it doesn't mean you'll see that fps depending on your machine's hardware.

Default Setting


This cvar defaults to 0 - which means it won't create a maximum fps, but the game engine has a soft cap of 200fps. However it can be changed to get better computer performance, or limit your FPS if your machine is getting close to overheating.

Possible Settings


Set to wow's softcap (200 fps)

Changing this setting

In-game, type the following

/console maxfps setting

Alternatively, you can exit wow, open the file, and add the following line:

SET maxfps setting


Wrath of the Lich King Patch 3.3.3 (2010-03-23): Softcap decreased to 200fps
Wrath of the Lich King Patch 3.3.0a (2009-12-14): FPS softcap 1000fps
