I bought ACA NeoGeo Sengoku from the Microsoft Store on PC. The game is running too fast. I have been trying things on my graphics card control panel but just made things worse. So I went back to default settings and thought I would ask around for some help.

I tried everything from this link and nothing worked: https://support.gog.com/hc/en-us/articles/213039445-Game-speed-issues-too-fast-too-slow-uneven-speed-

What can I do to make the game run like it was intended?

PC specs:
Intel Core i7 7700HQ
DDR4: 32 GBytes
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070
GDDR5: 8192 MBytes
Windows 10

  • What do you mean with "too fast"? – Parrotmaster Nov 27 '19 at 14:55

    @Parrotmaster Probably the running speed of the game. A lot of older games were limited by the speed of the hardware (usually processor speed) and when you bring the game to newer hardware a single button press will send your character across the screen. – Sorean Nov 27 '19 at 15:27

    What is your monitor's refresh rate? I've searched and a user has posted here that reducing the monitor's refresh rate to 60 Hz resolves the issue. Capping the framerate to 60 FPS with framerate-capping software such as Nvidia Inspector or Bandicam might work similarly. – galacticninja Nov 28 '19 at 3:24
  • @Parrotmaster, imagine the difference between something like regular Street Fighter 2 and Street Fighter 2 Turbo. The game is playable but it is not quite like how it was intended. – user240621 Nov 28 '19 at 8:30

I switched my monitor refresh rate to 60 Hz and that did the trick. Found a link on how to do it here: https://www.windowscentral.com/how-change-monitor-refresh-rate-windows-10

Thanks @galacticninja!
