Topic: I think I increased Doom Switch Framerate!!

I have a very important question: one time I played Doom for the switch on a smart TV and the framerate actually looked around the 60fps mark. I'm not kidding. It was not a stable 60fps but I was shocked. How come this happened? It happened with all my other 30fps switch games too... It was pretty incredible to see the game running so smoothly.

If you place a small magnet near your TV, you can even get them to run at 90fps!

I got 120fps on it handheld by throwing a brick at the screen, but I haven't managed to reproduce it since, or play any other games.

On a side note, has anyone else's Switch developed a massive hole in the middle of it?

Nothing is true. Everything is permitted.

Wasn’t sure if this applied to you guys too or not. Looks like it doesn’t.

Is this a joke thread?

If you are serious, then let me break it to you and say that's not how it works. There are no TVs that magically make the Switch or any system perform better. You especially cannot make a game get a higher frame rate then it was originally programmed for. If it was made to be 30 fps, it's 30 fps.

You probably mistaken a "increased" frame rate for a feature in more modern TV's that makes whatever is displayed appear to move smother. Different TV manufactures have there own method and names for it (LG - TruMotion, Sony - MotionFlow, Samsung - Clear Motion Rate, ect), but they all pretty much do the same thing. To put it simply, it trys to recreate a new frame based on the other frames and inserts it back in. It does this as many times it needs to give whatever you are watching the illusion of smother movement. The TV does nothing to the Switch.

I personally would disable it as it removes motion blur which which makes everything look fake and all blurry. It also creates bad side effects like input lag for gaming.

That’s incredible. Great news

We don't stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.

As gamers we never die. We always have spare 1ups here and there and everywhere

Your television may be processing the footage at a higher frame rate via means of motion interpolation (look it up). This means that your TV may be creating additional frames in every even-numbered frame by combining the actual current frame and the frame preceding it to fill in the gaps. Bear in mind that this can result in a lot of distortion and other visual anomalies (I imagine some monsters, especially the more agile ones, such as imps, will look quite distorted when in motion).

I would rather preserve the integrity of the video and audio as much as possible when it comes to games and film, but it takes all kinds, I suppose. Personally, I find this technique to be ineffective and incredibly distracting.

I suppose it might not look so bad when converting the original footage to double the frame rate, but I imagine that converting 30fps footage to, say, 120fps, would make it look substantially worse, because then you only have one authentic frame for every three blended/fake frames, and automated techniques such as these won't work miracles.

Guys, just use a Lego brick. Same effect, no hole. But you do need to step on the brick afterword for it to work. Not sure why.

I bought two switches and a gameboy link cable. Connecting them made every 30 fps game into 60, and every 60 fps game into 120.

@Link-Hero Yeah, I knew the TV couldn't actually increase framerate which is why I was so confused considering how smooth it appeared to be. I probably should have worded my post better haha.

This thread is amazing.

That said, I got a 4K resolution on my Switch screen one time.

I didn't know the Switch had 60 fps! I know Doom and Immortal Redneck. That's 2...
