FPS (frames per second) is the rate at which your computer produces unique images.
The higher the FPS the more smoothly the game runs.
The 11th version of Flash brought the support of hardware acceleration. Enabling hardware acceleration in Flash significantly increases the average FPS.
When playing Tanki Online, FPS is displayed at the bottom right corner of the screen. You can always disable it by entering the Settings menu and unchecking a box called "Show FPS and ping".
MYTH: Some people believe that FPS rate may be affected by the speed of the Internet connection or server workload. This is not true. FPS is generally affected by your computer's performance, and more specifically, the performance of your GPU (graphics processing unit).
