Fans have already started patching the updated version of NieR Replicant on PC
A modification of NieR Replicant High FPS Fix for NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 … has appeared on the Nexus Mods website, which is designed to fix game problems at high frame rates.
Recall that the journalists reacted favorably to the updated NieR Replicant. Still, the PC version leaves much to be desired: limited graphic options, regular slowdowns when disconnecting the controller, and so on.
As players with a screen refresh rate of more than 60 Hz found out, some of the animations in NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 … are tied to the frame rate, which is why they are displayed incorrectly when exceeding 60 frames / s.
Modification of Ersh and SkacikPL is designed to eliminate just this problem. The fix is not universal: it interferes with adjusting the direction of movement at a slow step and does not repair the animation of interface elements.
Also, Ersh and SkacikPL advise downloading Special K by Kaldaien (a version specifically for the updated NieR Replicant is available in Discord ). The framework allows you to get rid of the cursor, set the frame rate limiter, and so on.
An alternative to using fan-made patches is to wait for official patches from Toylogic and Square Enix. In NieR: Automata, confirmation of the first full update for the PC version had to wait “only” four years.
The western release of NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139 … took place on April 23 this year on PC (Steam), PS4, and Xbox One. On Metacritic, the project has from 79 to 84%, depending on the target platform.
