Windows 7: they need to fix this asap (aero and vsync)

they need to fix this asap (aero and vsync)

i finally found out why my aim was suddenly terribad in all my games. it's because aero has vsync on so your windows dont tear about when you drag em but this means when you play any game in windowed mode you will have vsync applied to that and progam0rs know that you cant kill much with that stuff on. i demand an option to disable vsync within aero. i do not want to change the desktop theme all the time to windows basic like we have to do now to fix this issue.

edit: you might say wtf use fullscreen its better anyway but team fortress 2 windowed with no border is the best thing since sliced bread. "tabbing" out of that is fast as hell - same goes for world of warcraft. also that flip 3d thing works with the games which is really cool. but vsync is a no go

I always play my games full screen with Vsync enabled, I hate when you get tearing, IMO it totally spoils the game and with 60Fps why wouldn't you.

Anyway that's my preference, but if you have an Nvidia card you can go to the control panel and force off.

yeah but thats because your not a "pro gamer" then with vsync your mouse movement isnt as resposive. you cant do 180 turns to fire somebody in the face as easily. and that nvidia force off stuff doesnt work on the desktop which means in windowed games. it didnt for me anyways.

Sorry to hear it didn't work for you, as for not being a pro gamer, have a look at my system specs G15 keyboard G9 Mouse (excellent mouse BTW) GTX260 216core, 4Gigs of RAM eE8500 @ 3.8Ghz 24/7, 22" screen 2ms response time and all the best online shooters

Why would you want to play in windowed mode anyway? I'd rather wait a few more seconds really...

CSS and Left 4 Dead play fine for me like that.

lol... all day long


mate, i would class myself as a ''pro-gamer'' & i can assure you (as MrGrim has stated) the only reason ''v-sync'' would be disabled is where the framerate is too low to support it properly....

trust me, catch me on COD4 & i will show you having ''v-sync'' enabled wont stop me from annihilating ya....lol

& i don't know any gamer worth his salt who plays in windowed mode..?? but what do i know ??....

Input Lag in All Games with Vsync On
I have an NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT. On XP, I could enable Vsync and disable frame buffering to cure mouse and controller delay (lag). On Vista and 7, turning on Vsync causes almost a second of input lag no matter what game I'm playing. I'm mostly into FPS games, so this makes it hard to aim.
