How to improve fps in PC games: 5 tips to get more frames per second (Written):

1. Improve fps: Get the latest drivers for your graphics card

Running old drivers isn't a good idea if you want the best performance, but a surprising number of people fail to update to the latest versions. It's much easier these days (with certain brands, at least) since pop-up notifications tell you when a new driver is available.

First, find out which graphics card you have, and also check which version of Windows your PC is running. Head to Device Manager in the Control Panel and click on Display adapters. You'll see the name of your graphics card.

To find out the specific version of Windows, right-click on My Computer and choose Properties (or click on System in the Control Panel). This will tell you whether you have the 32- or 64-bit, as well as exactly which version of Windows is installed.

Then, head to the relevant website to get the latest drivers. This will be either Intel, Nvidia or AMD. Don't go to the card manufacturer's site, such as Asus, MSI, Gigabyte or Sapphire. Be sure to choose the correct model of card, and the appropriate operating system.

Once downloaded, install the drivers and reboot your PC if necessary. Depending on the game, you might get up to 30 percent better performance with just a driver update.

Similarly, check if there's an update to the game itself. If you bought it via Steam, it should be updated automatically. Otherwise, check the game developer's website.

Finally, make sure Windows itself is fully up to date. Unless you chose to disable the feature, updates should be installed automatically. If they're not, search the Start menu (or Start screen in Windows 8) for Windows Update.

2. Improve fps: Optimise game settings

Updating drivers will get you only so far. The biggest gains in frames per second come from tweaking and compromising on graphics settings.

Ideally, you want to run your game at your monitor's native resolution. For most PCs that's 1920x1080; on a laptop it's likely to be 1366x768. To find out your monitor's resolution, right-click on the desktop in Windows 7 or 8 and click on Screen resolution. In earlier versions, click Properties instead.

The highest selectable resolution should tell you the native resolution, and should say 'recommended'. You can also search Google for your monitor's make and model if you're still unsure.

Lowering the resolution should give you more frames per second, but don't adjust the resolution here. Instead, load your chosen game and look for the graphics settings. Here you can change the resolution and many other settings.

Anti-aliasing is one setting to watch out for. AA smoothes out jagged lines, but incurs a performance penalty. Typically you'll see a slider, but it might be just a number, such as 2x, 4x 8x etc. First, try disabling AA altogether and see how your game plays. If it's fast enough, you can enable AA again at the lowest setting and progressively increase it until you find the best balance between quality and performance.

The same sentiment goes for most other graphics settings, including draw distance and shadows. Lighting effects, including shadows, tend to be real performance drains, so if you can live with basic effects, you can make the difference between a game being unplayable and playable.

Essentially, it's a process of trial and error. Unless, that is, your graphics card drivers can optimise each game's settings to work well using the hardware available. For example, the Nvidia card in our test PC has drivers which can do precisely that.

3. Improve fps: Check and benchmark performance

If your game has an FPS readout (you will need to enable this somewhere in the options, or install a third-party utility such as FRAPS), you'll be able to see how fast it's running. The minimum figure (on average) that you want is 25 frames per second. Anything less looks jerky.

The fps will vary depending on what's happening on-screen. When there's lots of action, it can drop considerably, so aim for graphical settings at which the game will run acceptably when that happens.

4. Improve fps: Overclock your hardware

This isn't something we recommend for everyone, but if you know what you're doing and understand that there's a risk of breaking your graphics card, CPU and RAM, you can run them faster. This should give you a few extra fps.

Your first port of call should be the graphics card, since this has the most direct impact on fps. You may find an option to overclock the GPU in the driver itself (launch the interface from the relevant icon in Windows' Notification area). Alternatively, you might need to track down third-party software.

Overclocking the CPU and RAM is easier, as you should find the settings in your PC's BIOS. Simply reboot, press Delete (or whichever key takes you to the BIOS) and look for the performance settings.

5. Improve fps: Use optimisation software

Lots of programs run in the background in Windows, and they use up resources including memory and CPU time. You can use PC optimisation utilities to ensure there are no superfluous processes running that could hamper game performance. You can also clear out temporary files and defragment your hard drive (don't do this on an SSD though).

Windows includes some optimisation tools, but you can also try Razer Game Booster which does a lot of the hard work for you. One version works with Windows Vista 7 and 8, and there's a separate download for XP.

FPS Boosting Guide:
1) Download Razer Game Booster Download it From 2) In-Game do /settings Set wholeTextures Off and FPS Limit 60
3) Download CCleaner To clean Your PC Download It From 4) Set Your MTA Settings Like This https://i.imgur.com/SBlhZA0.png

6) Go and copy file then paste it in GTASA:Models, then go to GTA or MTA.. and play, you will find Stuntplane's smoke, vehicle's smoke and rocket's smoke of hydra. Download the file from here. 7) Download FPS Limit Adjuster Here: 8) Open gta sa not MTA, then open the file and set the value in the box to 105 click okay, then you can close it, do this every time you run your game.

If you get kicked often by the FPS Kicker, I have a couple very simple tips to give you that may increase your FPS. The first thing you could try is lowering your FX Quality. To do this, when you first start MTA, before going to Server Browser and logging in to CIF, go to Settings, then click on the Video Tab. You will see FX Quality about half-way down in the Settings window. If you are using Very High or Medium, try lowering it down one setting. For example, if it's on Very High, lower it to High. If you're using High, lower it to Medium. If you still get FPS Kicked, you can try lowering your Resolution in the same Settings>Video menu. If you have a newer Widescreen monitor, try changing your Resolution to 1280x720x32 or 848x480x32, and make sure you switch your Aspect Ratio to 16x9 (To all Widescreen Monitor users, be sure to switch your Aspect Ratio to 16x9 even if you don't get FPS Kicked, so your screen won't look stretched.) If you're using an old square monitor, like me, try switching your resolution to either 1024x768x32 or 800x600x32, and you can leave your Aspect Ratio on Auto. Also, some Mods may reduce FPS. You may want to try a clean install of San Andreas (if you backed up all your files before installing your mods) and see if you still have FPS problems. If you try all of these options and you still get FPS Kicked, I suggest you either upgrade your Graphics Card, or simply buy a new computer. Thanks for your time, and I hope this helps

- Try to close every single program while Ingame.
- Lower your video resolution.
- Avoid crowded areas, this affects on the FPS very much.
- Try not to play with mods, delete all of them if you already have.
- Keep in mind that also your PC RAM has a big relation with FPS, so getting a stronger one would be fine, I recommend 4GB.
- Do /settings Ingame and disable some graphic mods from the "Graphics" category, also disable the Detail Shader.

NOTE: I am adding whatever guide you want, just PM/reply. To be edited.
Furthermore, Genius helped me alot for doing this. Therefore, I am giving a special thanks to him.
