Solving the PC FPS Problem in Nier Replicant: Troubleshooting Animation-related Issues

NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… is a remastered version of the original game released in Japan in 2010. This enhanced version includes improved visuals and additional content not found in the original release. The game can be purchased for various platforms, including PC. However, similar to Nier Automata, the PC port of NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139… lacks key features. The graphics options are minimal, and it is disappointing to see the state of the game on PC.

If you encounter the issue of accelerated animations due to the game’s high frame rate, here is a solution. It is unfortunate that a PC port released in 2021 suffers from such an oversight. It is noteworthy that the game automatically applies v-sync based on the monitor’s refresh rate. Therefore, users with monitors that have a refresh rate higher than 60 may experience problems. The only way to address this issue is to limit the frame rate to 60 FPS on the PC.

To set a frame rate limit using RivaTuner, follow these steps:

1. Download the latest version of RivaTuner from the Guru3D link provided.
2. Install RivaTuner Statistics Server and launch it from the taskbar.
3. Locate the Nier Replicant installation folder. If you are unsure of the location, open Steam, right-click on Nier Replicant in your library, select Manage, and then Browse local files.
4. Open RivaTuner from the taskbar and click on the Add button.
5. Select the NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139.exe file, which will be added to the list.
6. On the right side, set the Framerate limit value to 60.
7. Minimize RivaTuner and enable “Show On-Screen Display” to view the in-game FPS while playing Nier Replicant.

By following these steps, the game will be locked at 60 FPS. It is necessary to keep RivaTuner running in the background, but it is lightweight and does not impact performance significantly. Additionally, RivaTuner can help resolve stuttering issues in Yakuza 6, as explained in another guide. We hope this guide has been helpful in resolving the Nier Replicant FPS issue.
