View Full Version : Vsync should be turned off, large framerate boost
05-26-2004, 11:05 PM
I'm going to repeat what I posted in a previous thread. Vsync should be turned off in this game. Doing so will give you a huge boost in frame rate.
This is because frame rate in this game, with vsync on, is limited to a fraction of your refresh rate. If your monitor's refresh rate is set to 85hz, then your frame rate will either be 85, 42, 28, 21, etc. So if you would have gotten a frame rate of 60, it will only be 42. If you would have gotten 41, it will only be 28.
At least on my system, with a geforce fx 5900, amd 2800. Can anyone else verify that this is happening for them as well?

Thanks! You tripled my frame rates!

Does T3 have a setting in the game for this, or should it be set in the video drivers?

There's a setting within in game, in the graphics options area, along with the resolution, brightness, etc.

I hate to sound stupid, but I cannot find a "graphics" option in the game under the main menu. In the Main Menu I get A/V, which has Brightness, Resolution, and Shadow detail, but no option for vsync. Can anyone point me in the right direction? My framerate is awful.

No, I don't see vsync when I scroll down. The only options I get are:
Shadow detail, Bloom,
Audio Hardware Mixing,
EAX Advanced HD and
EAX Multiple Environments
(the last three and Bloom are turned off).
THere is no Vsync on this menu.
On the other hand, I use the term "scroll" loosely, because there is no scrolling; when I click the down arrow on this menu page I don't actually scroll, per se - more like a "move to the second set of options" sort of function, no scrolling involved. I noticed this on some of the other menus as well - no scrolling, just jumping to the end - and obviously some text missing in the intros to each chapter as a result.

OK. I'll try that.
