Fix (NieR) Automata Resolution

For help and/or questions, please post in the FAR thread over on the Steam discussion boards.

For more instructions and guides on how to use FAR, see this Tweak Guide over on the Steam guides for NieR:Automata.

Main Features

  • Fixes native fullscreen resolution
  • Allows adjusting Global Illumination for a performance boost.
  • Allows adjusting the resolution of Bloom and Ambient Occlusion effects to the current framebuffer resolution.
  • Includes a freecam look.
  • Includes a framerate unlocker.

Framerate Unlocker

The framerate unlocker is known to break cutscenes and scripting in the game. Use at your own risk!

Steps to enable the framerate unlocker:

  1. Disable V-Sync in-game
  2. Disable the built-in frame limiter of FAR (set it to 0)
  3. Enable Remove 60 FPS Cap
  4. (optional) Edit RefreshRate=-1 in dxgi.ini to override the default 60 Hz refresh rate of the game.
