100fps? Edit: found working workaround for 100fps cap.

Hey! So i am able to get 100fps, no more. Is there a way to open that cap in anyway?
Thank you!

Edit: how to get more than 100fps.

You need to edit the UserSettings.txt file under your home directory tree:

Exit both the game and launcher.
Navigate to Documents/Elder Scrolls Online/live/
Open the UserSettings.txt file (notepad, wordpad, etc)
Change the SET MinFrameTime.2 directive to whatever you want.
For example, to cap your framerate at 120FPS (perfect for strobed backlight gaming), calculate the setting at 1/120, which is 0.00833333.

So just to be clear, for 120FPS, it's

SET MinFrameTime.2 "0.00833333"

and for 144FPS it's

SET MinFrameTime.2 "0.00694444"

    Do u have a monitor that has 100 hz refresh rate?? Because if that is the case u can turn on vsync..
    I dont think there is a different way to cap ur fps, maybe in nvidia control panel or in amd catalyst center,
    depends what u use ^^

    I do have 144hz monitor, i should able to get 144fps with my setup.
    So i figured the game itself is capped to max 100fps?

    Or can i modify some ini file to open the cap, or 100fps and thats that, no way to overcome that limit?

    There isn't any way to raise it over 100 that I know of.
    Semi retired from the trading aspects of the game.

    I used that technique to cap mine at 59 a while back and it works great. Don't have to bother with v-sync and it saves wear and tear and heat on my cpu and gpu.
