144hz in DbD (Microsoft Store Edition)

teleftelef Member Posts: 4

Hello, I recently purchased DbD from the Microsoft store, but I can't unlock the fps or lock at 144 fps, I have a 144hz monitor but the game is locked at 60.

I did some research and apparently nobody talked about it (Microsoft Store), only on Steam.

I accessed the game files and didn't find any configuration files to solve my problem, does anyone know how I can solve it?

Thanks in advance!

    The correct file is located here: C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Local\DeadByDaylight\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor\GameUserSettings.ini

    That is if the Windows store version uses Windows local storage just like Steam version does. I haven't personally tested the Windows store version.

    I went to this directory but did not find any folders, So I created the folders and there was no difference in the game, still locked at 60 fps.

    If the files do not exists then creating them wont do anything.

    Depending on how you browse to that folder location you might have to disable hidden folders from Windows control panel.

    May I ask what guide you are trying follow in order to change the setting?

    I didn't understand what you said about disabling hidden folders. I always enable hidden folders option but should I disable it?

    However, I am following this guide: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=755463673

    But apparently it only works for Steam. I regretted buying from the Microsoft Store and not from Steam. :c
