    Hi,

    Just bought my MG279Q recently and it is awesome and freesync working like a charm! However, on some game like SwordCoast Legend and Pillar of Eternity the freesync isn't working and I've properly setup the in game setting but still it stick on 89(90Hz) on the monitor osd, while other title like Mad Max, MGS5 working perfectly just asking anyone has any clue about that?

    Also just wondering if freesync will work on 2D games?

    Thanks!

    Hi ,

    It's look like some unity game (like pillar of eternity) have trouble to run in true fullscreen mode , unfortunatly freesync work only in fullscreen mode.

    You can try to use gedosato to force true fullscreen : http://blog.metaclassofnil.com/?page_id=582
    Juste use "forceFullscreenMode true" into the gedosato profile game for PoE.

    FreeSync works only in Fullscreen? I didn't know that.

    Yes for now freesync work only in fullscreen and I think it's the same for Gsync

    O sry for you, i have a freesync monitor to ,but no freesync gpu, I can't test if freesync work or not by myself for now.
    But about PoE I have read that forcing opengl can unlock the true fullscreen add this to the launch option: -force-opengl

    I hope this unity engine will be fixed for that , or maybe amd will unlock freesync to windowed game , but with windows 8.1 & 10 forced vsync on all windowed app i have some doubts about that.

    If you are on win7/8, try disabling aero so that vsync isnt forced in windowed mode.

    If you are on win10, you m ight be sol, as you cant diable the compositor.
