I forced triple buffering on BF2 and my fps skyrocketed. Anyone else do this before?
n/m i found it
Can you force it with D3D??? I heard you couldn't..
How exactly do you force it? I can't find the option in the control panel with the Omega Drivers.
ATI Tray Tools by Ray Adams...
yea I use ATI Tray Tools by Ray Adams and theres a feature called "Game Profiles". You can go to through the different options and select what you want (load different AA and AF profiles for different games when the game starts). one of the options is "Force Triple Buffering" under D3d
but with forced triple buffering on, i asume vsync is forced on as well? since triple buffering only works in conjunction with vsync. or correct me if im wrong pls.
fps gain ... okay, but what about the IQ ?
I did it and got an average of 25fps increase, i never hit below 30 now
yea i heard triple buffering and vsync go hand in hand but i dont think its required. ill try it with vsync disabled
will it work if i just check the "D3D Forced Triple Buffering"? or will i have to load it??? thanks.
where can i exactly find this option in ATT thx in advance!
Right Click on the "ATI Tray Tool" on the lower right system tray
Go to "Game Profiles"
Then to "Manage Profiles"
Click on the "Additional Tabs"
Then you will see "Force Direct3D Parameters"
Is there any way to enable this threw registry entry?
I don't know... but that would be nice though. Can anyone help?
on my system this tweak causes slight mouse lag - i.e you move the mouse, and 3/85ths of a second later the display updates to match.
seems like half an hour tho - vsynch sucks!
can i have vsync off and prevent it from tearing...? I have a dell flat pannel 19" screen with a refresh rate of 75hz. when i have vsync off the games really run smooth but tears so much!
Ok let me answer a few of these questions since I'm the type of person who has sat down and tried every imaginable setup for best performance...
First off, the mouse lag -- If your using ATI Tray Tools then you should have an option in your direct3d profile called "Flip Queue Size". Set this to 1 to eliminate ALL mouse lag...
Second, Vsync is great on LCDs. In order to prevent any kind of tearing you must have vsync on. Setting your refresh rate to the highest (usualy 75Hz on an LCD) will give u the highest possible fps. Your fps with vsync enabled can only be as high as your refresh rate (on ANY monitor)
third, I havn't found a way to edit the registry to force triple buffers. So far Ray Adams has told me that the only way to force triple buffers on a d3d game is to make a game profile for it.
Last - play with the setting. If you dont notice any kind of fps gain at all with it on, then turn it off as it will use more video ram. If you have a 256mb or especially a 512mb card triple buffers should run fine always. If you have 128mb card I'd play with it alittle and see if you really nead it.
thanks for the input!
