Displaying your frames per second in Dragon Age helps to optimize your video settings. These directions describe how to display fps in Dragon Age Origins and Dragon Age II.

We have previously benchmarked and described the various graphics settings for Dragon Age II. In following these directions, many people have asked me how to enable the display of FPS.

First, open your finder to the appropriate config file. Your will replace username will your actual username.

Dragon Age II for Mac:

Save the file and exit TextEdit.
