Thankfully there are a few different ways to uncap FPS in Shadow of the Erdtree and in this guide, we're going to show you the easiest most effective method to use that doesn't require modding.

How to Remove the FPS Cap in Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree Using Flawless Widescreen.

Elden Ring: Shadow of the Erdtree is a breathtaking expansion, but its default framerate cap hinders the experience. Luckily, you can remove this cap and enjoy smoother gameplay at far higher frame rates using a tool called Flawless Widescreen.

First, download Flawless Widescreen from the Flawless Widescreen official website.

  • Click on the "Download" button to get the installer.
  • Run the downloaded installer.
  • Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.
  • Open the application from your desktop or Start menu.

Configure Flawless Widescreen for Elden Ring.

Configuring the options for Elden Ring will also configure them for the Shadow of the Erdtree DLC as well.

  • In the left pane, you’ll see a list of supported games. Scroll down and find “Elden Ring”.
  • Click on “Elden Ring” to select it.
  • After selecting Elden Ring, it will install all the base options, including Ultrawide support. However, you will need to manually choose to uncap frame rates.
  • So in the central pane make sure that you have Frame Trime Adjustment ticked and any of the other extra options you want to use.
  • Then use the + Frametime adjustment slider to increase the max frame rate to something that suits you.
  • By default "Remove 60Hz FS limit is ticked but it's best to make sure you set your max FPS anyway.
  • Now just minimise Flawless Widescreen and leave it running in the background while you play the game. You will also need to launch it and keep it running in the background every time you play the game.
