    It's skipping the performance of the computer into account

  11. 11
    You see it's choppy, because it's skipping nine frames out of twenty
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  12. 12
    So you're getting eleven frames per second
    .
    If you set it to 0, you will skip no frames, but it will be much slower. This also depends on the game you are playing.

    For example, there are several games that need to have the frames set to 0 to make it look much better
    .
    And there are games that you have to set to 1, for example, the Castlevania games are best played with frame skips at 1.

    This game - Pokemon is best played with 2
    .

    Another option is the "Throttle." In this case we have "No Throttle."
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  16. 16
    But if we set it to 200%, you will notice that the game is much faster, but the sound is choppy
    .
    Was this step helpful? Yes | No| I need help
  17. 17
    So you have to set all the settings according to your preference and bear in mind that every game will have its own settings here
    .
