How to customize FPS in BlueStacks for macOS

How will this help?

FPS is used to describe the total number of frames or images being displayed on your computer every second. The higher your FPS is, the smoother and more responsive your gameplay will be. 

BlueStacks for macOS gives you complete control over the FPS being displayed, and this detailed guide will teach you just how to do that.

How to customize FPS?

First, launch BlueStacks  and go to the menu bar at the top.


Now, select the BlueStacks tab and then click on Preferences in the drop-down menu.


The Preferences menu will appear in front of you. Here, navigate to the Engine section.


Within this section, scroll down until you reach the Frame rate settings.


Here, you will find a slider for choosing your desired FPS. You can set the FPS to anything from 1 to 60, as per your preference


However, if you'd like to achieve FPS higher than 60 FPS within games that support it, you have to check the box next to the Enable high frame rates option.


After you do that, you can choose up to 240 frame rates for BlueStacks by moving the slider to the right.


Once you're done customizing the FPS, just restart BlueStacks for the changes to take effect.
