I'm currently learning this game but some of these strats just seem impossible for me. What exactly does framerate affect and how low or high should it be?

Soo, most of the run your framerate should be as high as you can, there is no set minimum amount but the higher fps are, the easier are wall climbs and physic's works a lot better.
There are spots that you need to lower it to 60/30, you can do that with in game command "bind (x) setmaxfps (60/30/0 is for unlimited), lower framerate helps with clipping in bounce in some parts, tho that depends where and how you do that, I think corpseflesh have fps counter on his videos soo you can see where he lower it.
You can use "showfps 1" to see fps count on right up corner.
Painkiller is old soo you probly wont have a problem with that.
I can help with advise if you tell me what strats you are trying to do.

Thanks.

I bound the framerate keys but even using setmaxfps 0, the game is capping at 60. Is there some hidden vsync command I'm not aware of?

As far as strats are concerned pretty much anything that involves jumping just can't be done. I can't juggle dudes upwards with any amount of consistency and wall climbing is impossible. I must have jumped into the wall in Castle for an hour and couldn't get up there even once.

which version you are playing on? steam, gog? i think its something forcing 60fps in game, not the game itself, check your nvidia settings, maybe you have forced vsync on

Steam version. You're right, I've figured out the problem - the program I'm using to force it to play windowed is capping it to 60.

What does everyone use to play windowed? The program in the resources tab on this site didn't work for me.

Thanks but no it doesn't work for some reason. Just get an error when I press the RUN button so I'm using something else.

I've knoced my PB way down but there's still a few strats I just can't do for some reason. How the hell you're supposed to jump up that giant sphere thing in military base I have no idea. That's probably the one that's losing me the most time. Saves like 5 minutes, yeah? Maybe more.

sorry if those files doesnt work, i forgot where did i get them and tried to help.
The sphere is tricky couse it has strange shape which allow to climb on it tho its rly hard, you should just get to it, save and try diffrent ways and see whats working, sadly i cant tell more couse i didnt tried it myself too much
