The Wonderful 101 is an action-adventure game developed by PlatinumGames and was originally available on the Wii U. After a successful Kickstarter campaign, Wonderful 101 Remastered is coming out on PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch. While the official release date is in a few days, Kickstarter backers have already received their copies. If you’re running into any Wonderful 101 Remastered Frame Pacing issues on PC, here’s how you can fix them.
While the game itself is quite good, the same can’t be said about its PC port. Even though the game runs at a decent FPS, it suffers from major frame pacing issues. Bad frame pacing can make the game feel stuttering and introduces jitters, which can take away from such a fast-paced title. The good news, however, is that we can fix this for now, and wait till PlatinumGames releases an official update to address it.
Fix Wonderful 101 Remastered Frame Pacing Issues
For now, the only way to fix the frame pacing issues is by injecting Special K, an open-source completely safe software available for free. This is used to improve the technical performance of games and was widely used when Arkham Knight launched.
Download the latest version of Special K, from this Github Link. Scroll down to the bottom, and click the following link under Assets.
Now, open SKIM64, and click Install
After it’s done installing, you can click on Start Injecting
Now, run Wonderful 101 Remastered
With Special K running in the background, you will see the following tab on top of the screen
Use one of the shortcuts mentioned in this tab, to open the Special K window. These shortcuts can be “Ctrl + Shift + Backspace”, “Select + Start(PlayStation)” or “Back + Start(Xbox)“
Accept the terms, and you will get the following window
Open the Frame Limiter Tab, and click Advanced
Here, you have to check the following things.
Sleepless Render Thread
Sleepless Window Thread
After you have done this, click on File, and click on Install Wrapper DLL for this game, as shown below
This will ensure that the game runs with the Special K every time.
