Console variables < gxRefresh

This cvar is currently bugged. The only in-game setting you can use is 60Hz.[]

This cvar controls your VSync refresh rate - aka your max FPS while VSync is on. This CVar will change itself to match your monitor's refresh rate the first time you launch wow.

Default Setting[]

75

Possible Settings[]

You generally don't wish to change this setting as wow will usually auto-detect this correctly (bug not-withstanding).

60 (Hz)
Most LCD Monitors
75 (Hz)
Most CRT Monitors
120 (Hz)
Special gaming monitors - in WoW, these are meant for use with the Nvidia 3D goggles.

Changing this setting[]

In-game, type the following

/console gxRefresh setting

Alternatively, you can exit wow, open the Config.wtf file, and add the following line:

SET gxRefresh setting

Fix for current issue[]

When wow loads, it'll automatically reset gxRefresh back to 60Hz. However, to get around this you can edit your Config.wtf file to 75/120, save it, then set the file to read-only.

Please note that setting this file to read-only will keep wow from saving any engine, graphics or sound changes.
