Some Issues You May Encounter While Running RFU
Aside from a ‘Failed to connect to Github’ error, you may also encounter some other issues when you are running the Roblox FPS Unlocker program. The issues you may face may vary, as there are some errors that indicate something wrong.
Here are some issues that may occur on RFU:
- Roblox is force-closing
If you accidentally get some issues that say ‘Roblox is force-closing’, ‘files are being deleted’ and ‘my antivirus is detecting rbxfpsunlocker as malware’, you do not need to worry, as all detections are false positives.
In this case, the Roblox FPS Unlocker damages with running Roblox processes to uncap framerate. It could appear as suspicious to an anti-virus. However, a lot of Roblox players do not know the reason why it happens.
It could be predicted that 32bit builds of Roblox FPS Unlocker gather a lot of false positive detections than 64 bit builds. They are no longer included in new releases. To prove it, you can feel free downloading the repository, reviewing the source code and compiling the project yourself with Visual Studio 2019. If not, it can add an exception to your antivirus for rbxfpsunlocker.exe.
- You cannot see your FPS
If you get an issue where you cannot see your FPS on your Roblox games, no worries, as it’s related to the Settings. In order to view your FPS, you can press Shift + F5. Within the Roblox Studio, you can go to View -> Stats -> Summary.
- Input lag at high frame rates
If you get the trouble where you get input lag at high frame rates, you can fix it easily. In this case, you can only try to enter fullscreen by using Alt + Enter. Check if your input at high framerates should not lag anymore.
- Your framerates is below 60
If you use the Roblox FPS Unlocker, you may still get your framerates the same or even below 60. It doesn’t matter, as it seems to be a common misconception. We emphasize that Roblox FPS Unlocker is not a booster to increase your FPS.
The Roblox FPS Unlocker won’t boost the performance of Roblox in any way, meaning it only removes Roblox’s 60 FPS limit. Well, in order to run Roblox at more than 60 FPS, a compatible computer is really required. It means that if you already know your computer is powerful enough, but it does not show the higher framerates with Roblox FPS Unlocker, it would be better if you submit an issue.
- Fail to set a custom framerate cap
It is not a big problem, as it happens normally. If you fail, you can try again to create your own list of FPS cap values by editing the FPSCapValues array inside the settings file that is located in the same folder as rbxfpsunlocker.exe.
- RFU does not work on Mac
Here, we need to emphasize that the Roblox FPS Unlocker can only be used on Windows platform. Axstin, the Roblox FPS Unlocker developer, has no plans to change this. However, Axstin believes that Mac hardware is more experienced to port this project to Mac.
- A ‘variable scan failed’ error
If you get an issue that says ‘variable scan failed’, it means that Roblox FPS Unlocker program cannot find the internal variable responsible to uncap Roblox’s framerate. However, it may occur if another program has already edited the value. If you get this problem, you may need to verify that your frame rate is at a stable (60.0 FPS – Shift + F5) before you are using this program. If the error still occurs, make sure to submit an issue.
However, you do not worry too much about some issues that may occur when running the Roblox FPS unlocker, as this program has been released, along with a number of great features, including:
- Add custom fps cap values
- Add .gitignore and .gitattributes.
- 4.0 Update
- Fix for latest Roblox update, add license, and update readme
- Merge branch ‘master’ into patch-1
- Updated icon
- Remove Blackbone and DLL source
