Fixing Thymesia low FPS issue, stuttering, and frame drops

    Thymesia is a tough action role-playing game with fast-paced gameplay and a complex plague weapon system. Ever since its release, many players have been complaining about the Thymesia low FPS issue, lagging, and sometimes the screen going blank. 

    While the developer has been continuously trying to debunk some of these concerns, a lot still remains to be fixed. As we wait for better updates to fix these issues for good, there are some recommended methods you can try on your own for a better gaming experience. 

    In this guide, we will discuss the Thymesia low FPS and other issues and also how to resolve them on your own.

    Check System Requirements

    If you are acquiring any of the above-mentioned issues, your first task should be to check system requirements as it can be that your system might not support the game.


    • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
    • OS: Windows 10 (64 Bit)
    • Processor: Intel Core i5 or AMD Ryzen 5
    • Memory: 8 GB RAM
    • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950 or Radeon HD 7970
    • DirectX: Version 12
    • Storage: 16 GB available space


    • Requires a 64-bit processor and operating system
    • OS: Windows 10 (64 Bit)
    • Processor: Intel Core i7 or AMD Ryzen 7
    • Memory: 16 GB RAM
    • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 or AMD Radeon RX 580
    • DirectX: Version 12
    • Storage: 16 GB available space

    Disable Background Apps

    Try disabling all the extra background applications to decrease the load on the system. Even though it doesn’t look like much, it can make a huge difference. These include:

    • Antivirus
    • MSI Afterburner
    • Nvidia GeForce Experience
    • Steam
    • Photoshop, etc

    Update Graphics Driver

    If you are running the game on an outdated GPU driver, it will lead to the game crashing at startup. Update both the GPU and sound drivers if they require additional updates besides the Windows update. The game will run smoothly and hopefully crash-free with updated drivers. Both Nvidia’s latest drivers and AMD’s latest drivers can be found on their official websites.

    Verify Files Integrity 

    If boosting your driver fails to get rid of the game issues, you should try verifying the game integrity of Thymesia. By this process, Steam will scan all your needed files or fix any corrupted files associated with the game. To do this: 

    • Open Steam and go to Library.
    • Select Thymesia from the game list on the left side.
    • Right-click and select Properties.
    • Click the Local Files tab.
    • Click the Verify integrity of game files button. 
    • Wait until Steam completes the file verification for Thymesia.

    Lower Thymesia Graphics Settings

    Thymesia Low FPS

    If you are still having low FPS issues, we recommend that you try lowering the graphics settings. The graphics settings that greatly affect the game performance are:

    • Anti-Aliasing
    • Shadows Quality
    • Texture Quality
    • Texture Filtering
    • Effects
    • Foliage
    • Lightning

    Enable Game Mode and GPU Scheduling

    In order to increase Thymesia’s performance, you can also try enabling Game Mode on Windows 10 and 11. It will help in minimizing the background processes so that your Thymesia gets more FPS and better performance.

    You can do it by typing “Game Mode“ in Windows Search and selecting Game Mode settings. There will be an option to turn on the Game Mode.

    Furthermore, you can also enable Hardware Accelerated GPU scheduling to enhance Evil Dead: The Game graphics performance.

    Change Graphics Driver

    Additionally, we strongly advise you adjust the graphics settings in the Nvidia or AMD control panel to resolve the low frame rate issue with Farthest Frontier on PC. Users of Nvidia should set Shader Cache Size to Unlimited in the driver’s Manage 3D Settings. For many players, this setting alone has improved performance.

    Visit Nvidia Control Panel -> Adjust Image Settings and Preview -> Select 3D Image settings -> Advanced 3D settings to see additional settings. then make the modifications listed below.

    Max Framerate: 165
    Low-Latency Mode: Ultra
    Texture Filtering Quality: High Performance
    Power Management Mode: Maximum Performance
    OpenGL Rendering GPU: Graphics Card

    Change the settings for Thymesia AMD to the following:

    Texture Filtering Quality: Performance
    Radeon Anti-Lag: Enabled
    Surface Format Optimization: Enabled
    Radeon Chill: Disabled
    Radeon Boost: Enable
    Tessellation Mode: Off
    Anisotropic Filtering: Disabled
    OpenGL Triple Buffering: Disabled
    Morphological Anti-Aliasing: Disabled

    Re-Install Thymesia

    If none of these above suggestions work, try uninstalling and installing the game again. Make sure the game installs in one take and no problem occurs during the installation process.

    Install Thymesia On SSD

    Thymesia Low FPS

    If all fails, you can always install the game on SSD. This can help speed up the loading of the game files which will give you a relatively higher frame rate. 

    Contact Support

    If this happens to be your last-ditch stand, then we salute you for your efforts. However, if all the above-mentioned methods fail to work it does mean there is a defect in the game. It is wise to sort the game’s official support then. 

    We hope this helps you get rid of the Thymesia Low FPS issue. For more helpful guides on gaming issues, keep following Retrology.
