Issue Report: Serious Sam 3 - Vsync somehow on by default, even when not enabled
- system infohttp://pastebin.com/8GW5Kziv
I searched but couldn't see any existing thread on this. Anyway I'm playing the game in KDE with effects suspended (not just fullscreen undirecting, actually shut off effects with ALT-SHIFT-F12).
Even though Vsync is turned off in NVIDIA Control Panel and I have desktop effects disabled and Vsync is also turned off in SS3, everytime I startup the game and play I notice that its still exhibiting Vsync behavior. Looking at the sky I get a maximum of 60FPS. Most elsewhere it runs at pretty much exactly 30fps.
However if I go into the Graphics Settings menu of SS3 and enable Vsync...then disable it again, the game starts running as expected.
i.e no Vsync behaviour
Looking at the sky I can get over 60fps, up to around 70fps and general FPS is much smoother (understandable as my machine obviously cant manage 60FPS constantly), around 45fps.
But to get the game "un-Vsync'd" after everytime I start the game I have to enable and then disable Vsync like that.
