Proceeding the previously released PS4 Patches, PS4Scene game modder @illusion0001 (Twitter) recently updated Github with a Final Fantasy 7 Remake 60FPS Patch and some new demo videos from his YouTube Channel. 😍

This comes following an Uncharted 4 540p 60FPS PS4 Custom Resolution Patch (Blog Post), a Silent Hills: P.T. (Playable Teaser) 60FPS Patch (Blog Post) and both a Life is Strange 60FPS Patch and Life is Strange: Before the Storm 60FPS Patch (Blog Post) by illusion0001 with the related videos below:

:lovewins: Those who'd like to support illusion0001's continued work can do via his Patreon Page, and from Illusion0001's Blog update to quote: 60FPS Patch for Final Fantasy 7: Remake

PS4 Owners gets the patch first before PS5? Unofficially of course but still interesting. 🤔

Intro

This post will be a short one! Sorry to those who expected a long and in-depth post.

File Editing

Let’s cut to the chase. Looking through the game files Resolution Scale and vsync interval caught my interest. Of course these are not set in the executable due to it’s flexibility. It’s set from file instead. There are defaults in the executable but they are ignored as it later gets replaced by value loaded from settings file.

In file: pakchunk0-ps4.pak is where graphics settings is stored.
Code:
rhi.SyncInterval=2 ; 30hz
r.DynamicRes.MinScreenPercentage=83.3333333 ; 83% of target ir
r.DynamicRes.MaxScreenPercentage=100 ; 100 % of target ir (1080p for base not sure for Neo)
I’ll be changing these to
Code:
rhi.SyncInterval=1 ; 60hz
r.DynamicRes.MinScreenPercentage=50.0000000 ; 50 % of target ir (540p for base)
r.DynamicRes.MaxScreenPercentage=63 ; 63 % of target ir (720p for base)
; The ini comments are my own.
Result

Final Fantasy 7: Remake Now Playable at 60FPS on PlayStation 4! (Unofficial)

; There are multiple instances of the following lines,
; be sure to change all occurences.
; Todo: find out what neo uses for target ir

; For end users
; When replacing, only search for cvars
; i.e search for: rhi.SyncInterval=2
; Do not search for comments as they don't exist!

Note: The base game is CUSA-07187 Final.Fantasy.VII.Remake.PS4-DUPLEX release (CRC32: 296D352C), if you have a different base you have to rebuild the PKG to your base.
FYI, theoretically the PS5 could run bethesda games at 60 FPS via a patch, any sort of limitations they say they are bound to are false, you can even unlock it on the PS4 too through in some spots it might drop below 60 but other than that, its do able and quite easy.
To enable 60 FPS open Skyrim.ini/fallout4.ini under the [Display] section add:
Code:
bLockFrameRate=60
and if you want Volumetric Lighting add:
Code:
bVolumetricLightingEnable=1
