Tweak?

Recommended Posts

Guest venustus01

I read somewhere, ( I forgot where), that removing the "display".cfg from the main fs9 folder improves framerates.Is this a viable "tweak" or just snake oil?

From the Urban Dictionary:Snake Oil- comes from the 19th-century American practice of selling cure-all elixirs in traveling medicine shows. Snake oil salesmen would falsely claim that the potions would cure any ailments. now-a-days it refers to fake products- medicine or therapy that doesn't work.- any dubious or fraudulent remedy or cure (The route of the fraud the word is derived from resulted from a misunderstanding of a traditional Chinese joint and muscle painkiller derived from the skin of the Chinese water snake) http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=snake%20oilYou (and me) learn something every day. wink.png
