Get a program called FRAPS it allows you to see fps record movies and save screenshots.

Another useful binding (Show FPS):
Bindings=(Name="F9",Command="Stat FPS",Control=False,Shift=False,Alt=False)
??: ????????????

My guess would be fraps, unless people found an .ini tweak to get it to show. The console commands default to chat for some reason, so the "stat fps" command common to Unreal engine games isn't working for me.

Go to synaesthesia.

Oh-ho, as I'm typing someone comes along and says how to fix it. Nice.

Does this actually work?

I added the line to the correct .ini file and when I hit F9 in the game, nothing happens.. o.0

Some do, some don't, I might...

This is what i did. I am using the cd version - not steam.

1. Go to the file WillowInput.ini, it should be at: C:\Users\*your name*\Documents\My Games\Borderlands\WillowGame\Config
2. Add the line Bindings=(Name="J",Command="Stat FPS") above the large group of bindings, it should be about line 9.
3. When running the game press j, and the fps will appear in the top right.

Of course it doesnt have to be the 'j' key, but just make sure to use a key which is not already used.
