How do you adjust frame rates?
You cannot control the actual frame rate that the sim WILL perform at, but you can tell it where you would like it to be. This is called the target frame rate. This is located in the Scenery tab of the Customize portion of the Display settings.
I have always kept mine to Unlimited and have not noticed anything weird. Others keep theres at 20, etc. I personally have noticed that at Unlimited, I get a steady 25-30fps, but set to 25, only get 15... it makes no sense.
