    You have to download the Nvidia refresh rate Fix, your FPS are stuck at 60 because by default windows XP locks the refresh rate at 60hz.

    just download the refresh fix and you can just choose to set all values to their monitor supported max and there ya go :)
     
  3. Disable vsync and you wont have to download the fix. If you disable vsync then your videocard will ignore your monitor's refresh rate.

    nope, disabling V-sync will still cause XP to set it at 60hz, XP pretty much ignores Disable V-sync and another other settings unless you use REfresh Rate Fix or overrride it manually in DX8

    I run at 99fps (1024x768) with GF2 MX PCI, overclocked to 200 core and memory speed, disabled v-sync, I havent downloaded any fixes etc.

    I use BLUEorb and SDRAM coolants:rolleyes:

    where do you get the refresh fix ?!?

    im having simiilar problems with my XP and AMD XP 1700+ and GeForce 2 GTS DDR setup ...

    it seems like the mouse movement is a tad lagged behind ...

    its not spiky or anything .. just a tad behind in response

    how do i disable vsync ? is that part of BIOS ?
     
  7. I didnt need the fix I guess. I can disable vsync without it. In Unreal Tournament I get around ~120 fps and in Q3A I get around ~200fps. (geforce3) In windows Xp though Ive got my refreshrate set to 75hz.

    Ive never had to use the fix in any of my games.

    I'd still try just disabling vsync first then download the fix only if you need it. ;)
     

  8. Not in the bios. Go to your display properties, click settings, then click the advanced button, then select the tab that shows your 3DCard, then click "additional properties" and then you can click opengl and direct3d and you should see some options where you can disable it. I have a geforce3 so my display properties could slightly different. :)

    Same commands

    Best use "net_graph 3" - low on resources and shows lots of details.

    net_graph 3 is lower on resources than the other net_graphs, but still higher than it needs to be to show fps

    the correct command is
    cl_showfps 1
    which will show the fps at the top left of the screen.
