    Tutorial not more needed. You can get IPS patch here
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/dragon-quest-xi-s-demo-60-fps-mod.546705/


    Because for know we can't unpack config files luckily it's possible to unlock 60 FPS by editing .pak file.
    It works probably only with demo with titleid 010026800EA0A000

    You need to unpack game with hactool, go to romfs\JackGame\Content\Paks, open with hex editor pakchunk0-Switch.pak.
    Go to offset 0x0722F282 and change character "2" to "1".
    Save and put it to sdcard folder

    atmosphere\titles\010026800EA0A000\romfs\JackGame\Content\Paks
    or
    reinx\titles\010026800EA0A000\romfs\JackGame\Content\Paks

    You need every juice that is possible, so go with
    Code:
    handheld_charging_official_cpu=1785
    handheld_charging_official_gpu=921
    handheld_charging_official_mem=1600
    You can try to lower CPU, but 768 for GPU is not enough.

    It needs config file.
    If I understand correctly, devs used custom zlib compressor for smaller files that randomly cuts files and compress some of chunks, when rest is not compressed. Luckily enough part of line responsible for locking 30 FPS was not compressed.
    Normally it's
    Code:
    nvn.SyncInterval=2
    and in pak file it's
    Code:
    に1nvn.Interval=28サブ‚’最
    And we are changing Interval=2 to Interval=1.
    If you want just better resolution, you can use ReverseNX.

    Here are screens comparing handheld and docked flag

    Edit: It looks like it uses custom Oodle, not zlib.

    What is it at stock? A 30FPS game?

    BOOOO


    Does your fix make it more or less consistent 60FPS? Or somewhat close?

    If yes, why would they lock it to 30FPS in the first place?

    They probably wanted to game look more pretty than smooth. Handheld mode is not that great in terms of graphics. So with 60 FPS it would be even worse.
    https://gbatemp.net/threads/reverse...andheld-or-docked.543625/page-16#post-8765121

    My tests were not too long. I think it's more consistent if you use 921 MHz. With 768 MHz it constantly jumps between 30 and 60, so game looks choppy. If I would get configs, I would go with disabling syncinterval so we have FPS between 30 and 60 instead of 30 or 60.

    Completely unnecessary mod. Games look more cinematic at 30 FPS anyway.

    I dislike modern game publishing mindsets, the bosses force the developers to push more intense looking visuals instead of 60FPS gameplay.

    Or at least, that is what I am guessing is usually the case. Maybe devs are actually guilty, I doubt it but maybe sometimes that is the case.

    You are so stupid, you should not be on GBAtemp.

    Better have possibility to check with your own eyes than not have.

    For people like you I have ReverseNX.

    Why are you obsessed by 60FPS? 30fps in mobility is enough for this title!

    30FPS is an ugly eyesore.

    Does not matter if it is action heavy or not.

    I even much much prefer to watch TV shows with Smooth Video Project on Windows.

    Cinema maybe but anything else nah.
    Cinema has that in mind at times with filming, but damn
    sometimes I go from my 120hz moniter to watching an anime and I just need to take a minute to before watching the show because it messes with my eyes
    Also do you set your moniter to 30 fps to play games ever? I had a friend who did it but I think it was because his computer was slow so he set it to interlaced 30

    Its only 30 fps on ps4 as well.

    Not without the carefully placed motion blur and other effects used to make 24fps tolerable, movies are also not interactive. Anyway, if you dont want 60 fps just dont install anything.
