High graphics settings don't effect FPS?

    I have always played on low for better fps, since I don't have a very good computer. Get about 30 fps. Just turned the game up to high for laughs, but my frames stayed the same. Some change with the coding? Not complaining, its pretty awesome to play a good looking game, but at the same time, i'm confused.

    check your user options file and look for MaximumFPS under [Rendering] i set mine to 60 beings my monitor wont do any better yours MIGHT be set to 30 which is plenty for most games. just a suggestion XD.

    It's because you're CPU bound. There's no harm in giving your GPU more work to do while it is waiting for your CPU to finish updating data for the next frame.
