   I have only done a few test laps with the vsync off. Man I don't know if it's me or what but my eyes are not getting as tired as usual.

    Think I will leave it off till something arise's,  as eye fatigue is a bit of a prob for me.

   Productive day  thumbs up

I was talking to some mates at work today and what I was told is that with LCD flat panels the vertical sync option is not really that important, it can be disabled for games such as racing, it was suggested that one may want vsync enabled for First Person Shooters where one is staring at a single point on screen like cross-hairs or something... this really leads into an individuals personal preference as to what they see on their screen and what they deem to be comfortable to them...

From more reading on the net it seems an LCD's response time comes into play, I think the lower the number the better  :?: I believe the monitor I selected for you Dee when building your computer had a response time of 2ms.

I get the feeling I have lots of tinkering to do now in my games lol

Nice to turn it off, just to see what your system can do though - you spent your money - you want your damned fps!
 lol

The reason why i dont use vsync is possible stutter issues.

I tried the VB+TEX dll, and, on my modest rig, have just had a silky smooth race against 19 'tinas, in DX9 1024x768...

bare in mind I have been using DX7 640x480 for AlfaTina...

friday will be the test, as online races seem FPS heavier for me...

**edit**

just did 2 more tests,

35 cars at VLM mid-ohio, DX9, 1024x768 - perfectly smooth
19 cars at donny national, night, DX9, 1024x768 - again, perfectly smooth


there may be something to this...

Just the main game directory.

Seeing a nice 20-frame bump in rF behind a full grid of CORR trucks.

If you have an ATI card you could use ATI Tray Tools

Tray tools will allow you to diplay the FPS in games without their own FPS display and also allow you to tweak your cards memory speeds etc.

ctrl+F gives you your framerate in all GMotor games... I think?
