Screen tearing during cutscenes?

#1TropicMoon10Posted 2/22/2014 1:26:23 PM
I'm playing Darksiders and I see some really noticeable screen tearing during gameplay. So I enabled v-sync and it seems to have disappeared for the most part...until the cutscenes happen. Then it's worse than ever - like, really, really bad.

It's not gamebreaking or anything. The gameplay is just fine so I can live with it. But can anyone explain why it happens during cutscenes? Aren't they prerendered anyway?

Well I googled it and seems to be a common problem even with v sync on. It might be just its a shoddy console port onto PC so it has some problems.

One thing you could try is to enable v sync through the nvida control for this particular game and see if it helps, or catalyst if your using AMD card.

Also in the in game options is there anything to select your monitors refresh rate or is the option not there at all? Maybe try and tweak if its there.

Did you restart the game? A lot of times vsync doesn't actually apply until you've exited the game and booted it up again.

That happens to me with all videos, not just in games. It even happens when scrolling through web pages.

As far as I can tell there is no way to fix it.

Try lowering your refresh rate in windows to say 59hz instead of having it set @ 60hz.

I can't believe that worked. Does this mean my 60Hz display is really a 59Hz display?

EDIT: Monitor still reports that it's running @ 60Hz, but the tearing is gone. Odd.
