FPS Monitoring becoming pretty much useless

Recommended Posts

Fraps hasn't been updated for over 3 years and starts to cause a lot of problems with newer games. Either it breaks the Steam-Overlay or crashes while booting up games like Metal Gear Solid 5. Are there any plans to replace fraps fps monitoring with something that works with newer game releases?  :(

Steam and Ubisoft both now have built in FPS counters . Look under "settings" in both (while logged into your account(s)  ) . Besides that , Evga precision (not the easiest to set up like it used to be , and/or MSI Afterburnner .

is there something special we have to turn on to get the rtss fps counter to work? ....I have it on my sensor panel and it does not seem to work?

and this might not be the place for it but I cant seem to get the ssd and hdd drive utilization or temp things to work either ....temps work in the senor page but seem frozen on the sensor panel

In case multiple items are frozen on the SensorPanel, then the issue may not be RTSS, but rather a configuration issue on your side. Have you tried to lower the SensorPanel update rate in AIDA64 / main menu / File / Preferences / Hardware Monitoring / Update Frequency?

better late than never right...lol..i have it set to 3 seconds right now ....what should it be at?...i never did get it to work

It's safe to use 500 milliseconds (half a second).

how does Steam get the FPS without using a third party app? would be useful to have fps, but not enough to have an extra processs/app running to get the information.. :P

Steam is not our software, so I have no idea how it works. It may use an internal module to measure FPS.
