    Thanks for your work, Nvidia Inspector is such an awesome tool -- it boggles my mind that enabling "Half-Refresh V-Sync" via the driver can't be done in the standard control panel without it also being the "adaptive" type -- don't get me wrong, on paper I like Adaptive v-sync as much as the next guy, but the issue is the adaptive v-sync type doesn't work in conjunction with the low lag v-sync trick in my tests/you get tearing constantly and have to cap to something closer to refresh rate/2 + 1 to avoid tearing.

    Nvidia Inspector --> Half-Refresh V-Sync + something like an RTSS cap to the monitor refresh/2 - 0.01 (and maybe the ULLM mode -- not sure if it has any effect when reaching your fps limit though) has produced pretty solid results with a controller all things considered (I say with a controller since input isn't 1:1 like a mouse and I don't notice the latency quite as much personally). Anyway, all that to say I just wish Nvidia would add standard half-refresh rate v-sync to their panel.

    RTSS scanline sync is also terrific, but on some of my older systems (my laptop for example), I don't have the overhead to consistently prevent tearing that way as the tear moves around quite a bit and all, but an awesome tool there nontheless. Had great results with it in DOOM 2016 to my recollection.

    Hello, thank you for your work.

    First I'd like to inform you that "NVIDIA predefined profiles CAN be restored". When you remove a profile, it writes to one of the two files: nvdrsdb0.bin or nvdrsdb1.bin (looks like half of the profiles are linked to the first file and another half - to the second one). Those files can be found in the \ProgramData\NVIDIA Corporation\Drs folder. But those predefined profiles are not stored in those two files and if you remove them - all predefined profiles will be restored. You might try it yourself.

    Second - there's a reason for me to try and remove all preinstalled nvidia profiles for all applications. The problem is that with your program I can only remove 1 profile at a time and after each time it jumps to the default profile so I need to press "Down" everytime, plus after I confirmed the remove it shows another window saying it's removed which I do not want to see. So please tell me how to remove several profiles at a time or even all of them without pressing all those redundant buttons?

    Export nvidia format
    blank everything except base profile.
