So have you tested the limiter a lot? How do you like it?
Besides setting the elma game FPS value to anything between 30 - 999, it is supposed to remove the delays when having a very low frames per second, and the movement is laggy. I haven't tested this myself though.
It's interesting to finally see this released. Of course it's not like this is any "cheat utility to easy world records", but more of an utility to make life a lot easier.
Adjusting FPS has been a fact for years, and several methods have been tried, such as opening certain applications on background to affect the FPS in some way, for example lowering it a bit to a desirable value.
There is also a list of internal level suggested FPS values.
In the beginning changing FPS was limited to simply changing vertical synchronization (vsync) to either ON or OFF. When vsync was set to on, FPS was limited the current refresh rate (Hz) that your monitor could handle, in other words, was set to.
For example on my old CRT monitor the maximum refresh rate was 144Hz, so in this video mode I got 144FPS in elma, when I set to vsync on. When I set vsync off, the FPS was as high as my computer could do. So basically in the past it was either 60 - 144, or maximum that my computer could do (which I think was something like ~400).
Let me quote Zweq and his comments about his recent Flat Track WR, which was driven with FPS limiter:

P.S. I was writing this exactly six days ago, I just didn't push "post" button. Then I had immediate offline perioid until today, and I haven't checked what's been happening concerning this. So pardon me if I don't make fully sense.
