Microsoft has clarified some information about the following FPS acceleration, This is a newly released enhancement that can be applied to backward compatible games.
In mid-February, Microsoft announced the first set of backward compatible games to take advantage of the FPS Boost feature, which improves the old version of the game with a higher and more stable frame rate, thereby making the game more visually smooth.
This feature runs at the system level and has the ability to enhance Xbox One games, so they run at four times the original frame rate.
However, if you are waiting for your favorite old title to receive this treatment, you may be disappointed in the future.
Xbox’s program management director Jason Ronald entered the latest Major Nelson podcast this week to further explain the feature (part 1).
In the podcast chat, Ronald shared information about how Microsoft was unable to upgrade the upgraded version to all older games, thanks to how certain games are designed to work at their original frame rate.
He explained: “Unfortunately, this technique is not suitable for all games.” (Thanks to VGC). “In some cases, the original way the game was written… After we tested some of these games, we found that the animation runs twice as fast and the physics runs twice as fast.
“It is vital for us that we always respect the original intentions of the creators, so we can do this at the platform level, and then we work with developers and publishers and make sure they still believe in it. Indeed. In line with their original intention.”
The first games to benefit from the new features are “Far Cry 4”, “New Super Lucky Story”, “Sniper Elite 4”, UFC 4 and “Watch Dogs 2”, and more games will be launched soon.
Regarding which games will be upgraded with improved FPS, Microsoft pointed out that this is due to popularity. Microsoft intends to launch a new Xbox Series update this spring, which will bring new menu icons and system settings to make the management of FPS settings more intuitive.
