Do you wonder with how much FPS you can run Mass Effect Andromeda? In many games it’s possible to enable a small display that will allow you to monitor your FPS, I wrote similar guides for other games, and with MEA you have that option too. In this guide you will learn how to show the FPS in Andromeda.
How To Show The FPS In Mass Effect Andromeda
The following method is very simple and the best way if we just want to show the FPS for the time until we exit the game.
- First open the Mass Effect Andromeda console with the tilde key (~).
- Now we have to type the command “perfoverlay.drawfps 1” into the console, without the quotation marks! Confirm the command with the return key.
