Lightbulb How to enable 120Hz?

It just let's me select 100Hz, and my LCD supports up to 120hz. Anyone know a work around?

Why would you want anything above 60? That's the highest the human eye can register.

But you can still feel the difference between 60 and 120 tho.

Wrong. The difference between 60hz and 120hz is night and day.

Posted in my thread as well:

OKAY! Finally found the stupid setting!

Go to C:\Users\YOUR_USERNAME\Documents\DeadIsland\out\Se ttings (in Win7)

Find a file called Video.scr. Make a copy of it just in case, then open the original with Notepad (or Notepad++ if you have it).

Change the graphical setting, including resolution, REFRESH RATE, and FSAA (dont know why they dont put it on the menu). No FOV or VSync unfortunately. Save it, and run the game. VOILA!

Enjoy!

Tin foil hat much?
The only thing a >60hz does is more blur.

Like we need more blur, just like the blinding bloom epidemic when it was the "thing".

You should not resort to those petty comments Smee2u and just try it out for yourself.

The 120hz monitor in front of me disproves your tin foil hat BS. I do have to wonder though who around here is old enough to have used a CRT bumped past 80hz.

Come about 2000, I had a 94hz CRT. Now in a landfill.

Ermmm you do know a 60Hz lcd can't give you a migrain right?
Atleast not in the sense that you are thinking it does.

FPS and refresh rate are not the same thing. A higher refresh rate is always better simply put because it's how fast the image is being refreshed/drawn on the screen. 60 is standard for all LCD's but even though your eyes can't see the refresh it can still hurt your eyes. Ever get a headache after staring at a computer screen too long? Part of that is because of the refresh rate.

Also, that whole "human eyes can only see 60fps max" is a crock anyway since there is a massive difference in feel between 30fps to 60 fps to 100fps on up.
