This tutorial shows you how to unlock the Frame cap for Brink. Usually you'd be able to play online with an uncapped frame rate, but sometimes that doesn't even work.
So this method for sure shows you how to unlock the cap yourself without having to play online, or if you want to play online, that's fine too.

seta com_allowconsole "1"
seta com_bootLogo "0"
seta ui_fov "90" // Field of View
r_shadows "0"
com_unlockfps "1"
com_unlock_maxFPS "60"

I've noticed some people having problems. I myself recently have ran into a situation involving my FPS to lower. Please give me some time while I look into and a follow up video will be made. Thank You

EDIT: Okay, you NEED to copy these files down exactly how they are. Like literally select all, copy, and paste it into the "AUTOEXEC.CFG" folder that you created. MAKE SURE IT IS A .CFG FILE. That is the key. i tested every map and it worked fine. Turning off V-Sync helped a little, even though it creates screen tearing for some people, it's mostly the only way to get it to work fine. Here is what you need to Copy and Paste:

////Custom BRINK Configs////

seta com_allowconsole "1"
seta com_bootLogo "0"
seta ui_fov "90" // Field of View
r_shadows "1"
com_unlockfps "1"
com_unlock_maxFPS "60"

r_useHighQualityPostProcess "0" // Motion Blur
r_visDistMult "0.8" to "1.2" // View Distance

It's a fun game, but my god is it a poorly optimized mess.

Thanks a lot! I looked online and there wasn't a clear way on the usual site saying how to do this without running a dedicated server. This worked flawlessly for me, high FOV and high FPS. Good video

Not even a single increase in the FPS -_-

So I tried actually using the cfg, and then I tried using exec-ing the file through console and it says that that com_unlockfps and com_unlock_maxfps are unknown commands, so I guess this is why I don't see any changes in fps

hm i dont now.... i think after i buy a new system with a gtx 2060 6gb / amd ryzen 5 with 6 cores / 16 gb ram and brink on a SSD that it works.... and after all this years this game still unplayable. i watch your video and the performance actually remains the same.... i think allways it was my old PC but this game is sooooo incredibly bad optimized... . a game that will probably never really be playable.. but thanks for the god will.

Still the same as before, using the fps counter it always said I had up to 144fps, the cinematics are a little smoother, but the gameplay is still choppy.

My textfile still remains as a text file even after I rename to "autoexec.cfg". How do I fix that?
