    so I'm playing a lot of fortnite and the engine is unreal engine 4 in that game, same as PUBG for example, for the longest time i've been using the ingame framelimiter to set 120 fps, vsync off,

    (monitor is asus vg248qe lightboost enabled 10% at 120 hz)

    but then today I was interested if there was any difference using unlimited frames ingame, and limiting to 120 with RTSS instead and got some interesting results,

    with ingame limiter 120 fps vsync off = frametime is never a flat line and never below 9.3 or so ms even when fps is 120,

    with riva limiting instead frametime line is completely flat and solid 8.3 ms frametime, mouse input also feels more responsive somehow and smoother overall, for me this was very surprising as I thought limiting frames at the engine level, especially in such a popular and modern game would be superior to 3rd party limiting ?

    could this be the issue that im measuring frametime with same application im using to limit the frames with, RTSS ? so its not a "true" result? it still feels better/faster input though if its not placebo, also there is a bit more tearing with riva but feels better still either way, im very insensitive to tearing and lag is more important for me, anyway would be interesting to hear some opinions on this and if anyone tested this in fortnite/pubg and what were your results?


    Have one final question also about what value I should limit to , should I just keep RTSS at 120 or some other value like 119 or other value (and why?) my true monitor refreshrate according to testufo site is 120.004 hz if that is important, thanks a lot for any feedback!

    You could try the Blur Busters' method of low latency Vsync ON. Try limiting the framerate in RTSS to a value that equals your monitors' refresh rate - 0,01 (eg. 120 - 0,01 = 119,99). To find a more precise measurment of your refresh rate, you can use this link to a Blur Busters test utility:

    thanks for answer but I don't want to run with vsync on even if its the low lag trick, also I did test my hz its 120.004 if you read the post again :p still looking for answers if anyone knows why im experiencing the above situation and if rtss should be at 120 or other number for best result with vsync off !

    Oops, sorry for that! My brain must have edited that one out... You could also try the Scanline sync method that the latest version of Rivatuner allows. Under the field where you enter your FPS limit is a field that controls the new Scanline sync. If it's 0, the feature is turned off. When you input a number, RTSS will try sync to a specific scanline. Try putting in -1, for example. That should hide the tearline. There are more in-depth tutorials on this subforum by much more competent people than me, so try going through those for more information about this feature. Keep in mind that this feature requires a bit of GPU headway in order to keep the tearline stable.
