1/2 Refresh Rate Vsync

Simple question. Once and for all... does 1/2 Refresh Rate Vsync setting in Nvidia Inspector have ANY effect in P3D v4?

when you set it up correct, yes

What does that mean? Can you elaborate on what is the correct way to set it up? Thank you!

I would like very much if LM would respond since it's a simple question.

Hi Tomaz....

I am not an employee of LM nor connected in any way except as a customer for P3D. I am not even what you would call a techie....but, I have been simming since the mid 1980s.

P3D is more gpu dependent than is FSX, which needs more CPU horsepower to perform to its capability.

assuming you have good hardware to meet the task for P3D, I have gone round and round on this. At present, I have come to believe that it is more important that you set frame rate within the sim to match the refresh rate of your monitor. For example, with a 60hz rate, set your P3D refresh rate to 60. Some people believe 30 to be better because the human eye cannot really see any changes beyond the mid 20s. As for Vsync...I have it turned off.

Also, there is some current thinking to disregard Nvidia Profile settings and use the native settings for your video card. I realize this statement might spawn a lot of debate. I am not interested in arguing, but I am interested in learning. So other points of view may help us all sort out one of the key issues in P3D setup.

I just want to know if it has ANY effect or not in P3D. That's all.

Who provides support for Nvidia Inspector?

Not developed by Nvidia for their products.
I went to the Nvidia site and did not find anything there.

Seriously, instead of answering a simple question you went there? OK, forget about Nvidia Inspector. The question was never about that.

Does 1/2 Refresh Rate Vsync setting, where ever you set it (for example in Nvidia Control Panel developed by Nvidia) has any effect in P3D v4?

I have used the Nvidia control panel but did not find the 1/2 rate option listed.

Possibly I missed it on accident?

Do you happen to know who provides support for Nvidia Inspector?

Are you serious? You never heard of 1/2 Refresh Rate Vsync or are you trying to dodge the question? Seriously?
Ok, let's try it like this then...
In Nvidia control panel under "Vertical sync" does the setting "Adaptive (half refresh rate)" have ANY effect in P3D v4?

No, I never heard of it, never needed to use anything like it.
I just go with the defaults.

However, that is why I wanted to know who provides support for Nvidia Inspector?
Which was part of your original question.

I just looked in the P3D display settings and the vsync option is On or Off.
I assume that is foe all graphic cards / monitor applications.
Mine is Off.

I assume the Vsync On or Off is what is supported by P3D.

But that's not at all what I was asking. I asked a simple question. Does this setting have ANY effect in P3D v4? I have no idea why would someone who doesn't even know this setting exists even attempt to answer the question.

Also, the question really had nothing to do with Nvidia Inspector. I just mentioned it because the majority of P3D users who set 1/2 Refresh Rate Vsync do that via Nvidia Inspector or Nvidia Control Panel. I thought everybody know about this setting. I guess I was wrong. And to answer your question, I have no idea who provides support for Nvidia Inspector.

So, moving on.

Can someone who knows about this setting from LM or who knows what's he's talking about please answer this simple question... Does 1/2 Refresh Rate Vsync have ANY effect in P3D v4?

I was trying to get some information on it.
I figured I would try a test on my setup.

I'm sorry if my response was a bit harsh. I almost couldn't believe that someone wouldn't know about it.
I really don't need you to test it. It's not about that. It's about the technical aspect if is it even possible for it to work or not. I hoped for a straightforward answer, yes or no, from someone from LM. Sadly that didn't happen.
