60 FPS Cheat Codes

From Emulation General Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

These are cheat codes affecting the game's internal FPS for games running at 30 FPS to get them to play at 60 FPS. However, these are often game-specific and very prone to bugs considering many of the games weren't made with 60 FPS in mind. Notably, the walking speed and animations might play at double speed, which can cause some gameplay problems like for example making a mission impossible to beat in Metal Gear Solid Peace Walker because the enemies are too fast.


Nintendo 64[edit]

To be used with the 1964 Ultrafast, which includes CPU Overclocking. That alone can cause a speedup in a select few games like GoldenEye, Perfect Dark, Mario Kart 64 (partially: MP, some stages), Carmageddon, and San Francisco Rush games (partially: MP).

Originally 20 FPS (17 in PAL, 30 in 3DS version).
Some animations are still awkward or too quick.

Some other games have 60 FPS patches or codes too. 60fps cheats topic on pj64-emu.com


Needs some versions of Dolphin. The overclocking can increase the framerate of games with Vsync, variable FPS or slowdowns in the real console.

There was an option to overclock the GPU (Vbeam speed hack) to get 60fps in Pikmin 1 and 2, but it was eliminated by Dolphin team in recent builds. The VBeam hack was axed by the devs over accuracy concerns and wanting 60 FPS hacks to run on real hardware, or something. You'll have to track down those versions then.

  • Sonic Colors: Use the following Gecko code and set Dolphin's Emulated CPU Clock Override to 200 - 250%

PlayStation 2[edit]

todo: These (formatted)

  • Metal Gear Solid 3 Subsistence NTSC-U (Source):
gametitle=Metal Gear Solid 3 - Subsistence Disc 1 (Limited Edition, SLUS-21359)
comment=Force 60 FPS
gametitle=Metal Gear Solid 3 - Subsistence Disc 1 (Limited Edition, SLUS-21359)
comment=Force 30 FPS

Needs at least 20% overclock on EE. Cutscenes need to have 30 FPS enabled back to be less demanding.

PlayStation Portable[edit]

Some games offered the option in-game to increase the framerate on later PSP models, like notably all versions of Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep, and Tales of Destiny 2 (all other Tales ports were downgraded to run at 30 FPS sadly).

A lot of PSP games have codes to increase their framerate almost without any negative effect for the majority (the ones that have bugs with 60 FPS are marked with "b"), and a CWCheat list can be found here. One example:

Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep (Japan, US/PAL, Japan Final Mix)
_C1 Force 60 FPS Mode
_L 0x21725EC8 0x00000000

PlayStation 3[edit]

There is multiple FPS and other patches created by community listed on the RPCS3 Official Wiki.
