Forcing Final Fantasy Remake 7 to run in DirectX 11 may help solve the stuttering problem

This is a public service announcement: If you encounter a lot of stuttering in the PC version of “Final Fantasy 7 Remake”, this seems particularly bad in the slums and the central area where many other characters gather in Chapter 3, there is a potential fix it. Although not a perfect solution, it reduced the number of frame rate drops I encountered when sprinting through the streets between side missions.

To set Final Fantasy 7 Remake to run in DirectX 11 mode, click on your profile in the upper right corner of the Epic launcher and select settings from the drop-down menu. Scroll down until you see a list of currently installed games, click Final Fantasy 7 Remake Intergrade, and then check the “Additional command line parameters” box. In the space below it, type “-dx11” without the quotes. If you want to force it to run in a full screen instead of a borderless window, you can also add “-fullscreen”.
