If your device doesn’t match one or all of the recommended configuration settings, you will want to adjust your in-game graphics settings to help mitigate performance issues. You can use the in-game settings menu to adjust all your graphics settings using the predefined settings levels or change individual settings as you see fit.

Honkai: Star Rail FPS Cap for PC and Android Devices

However, if you are not playing on an iOS device, the performance issues you are experiencing may not be caused by your specific setup. Per a Tweet from Stephen Totilo, Honkai: Star Rail will run exclusively at 120FPS on iOS. However, MiHoYo says their development team is working on optimization for PC and Android devices.

Here is the full Tweet if you want to see it:

This is the same issue that was never resolved in Genshin Impact. PC and Android devices are locked at 60FPS. The FPS cap has caused many issues for players regarding LOD level and draw distance, which causes issues like blurry textures and character assets to load too slowly.

Luckily for us, fellow Trailblazers have figured out a way to unlock FPS to 120 on PC devices using the following steps:

  1. Open your registry editor and go to: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Cognosphere\Star Rail
  2. Find the binary value named GraphicsSettings_Model_h2986158309
  3. Change the FPS Value to 120 and click OK.
    • If you change it to any higher than 120 the game will revert back to 60 FPS.

As always, you must proceed cautiously since you are messing with your computer’s registry file. Proceed with the above steps at your own risk!
