A new Final Fantasy VII Remake unofficial patch has been shared online, making the game run at 60 frames per second on base PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 4 Pro.
The new patch, which has been developed by illusion0001, manages to increase frame rate without any impact on performance by adjusting the dynamic resolution range.
Looking through the game files Resolution Scale and vsync interval caught my interest. Of course these are not set in the executable due to it’s flexiblty. It’s set from file instead. There are defaults in the executable but they are ignored as it later gets replaced by value loaded from settings file.

rhi.SyncInterval=2 ; 30hz r.DynamicRes.MinScreenPercentage=83.3333333 ; 83% of target ir r.DynamicRes.MaxScreenPercentage=100 ; 100 % of target ir (1080p for base not sure for Neo)
I’ll be changing these to
rhi.SyncInterval=1 ; 60hz r.DynamicRes.MinScreenPercentage=50.0000000 ; 50 % of target ir (540p for base) r.DynamicRes.MaxScreenPercentage=63 ; 63 % of target ir (720p for base) ; The ini comments are my own.
Illusion0001 also shared a new video showcasing his Final Fantasy VII Remake 60 FPS patch. You can take a look at it right below.
