Setting V-Sync, Anti-Aliasing
V-Sync: Set the limit of fps (frames per second). Vertical synchronization is synchronizing of rendering on graphics card with refresh rate on
the display. Two scenarios are possible:
- Graphics card renders faster (bigger FPS) than display refresh rate. In this case, it is good to set the V-sync to Interval 1 to limit FPS to display refresh rate. It prevents from screen tearing
- Graphics card renders with smaller FPS than display refresh rate. In this case, it is good to switch the V-sync (Disabled) off to minimalize display lag (time measured between user action and reaction visible on screen)
For deciding if computer is powerful enough to use V-sync Interval 1, run the Performance test.
- Steps are:
- Set V-sync to Disabled
- Run Performance test
- Get results on High Details
If average FPS on High details is bigger than your monitor refresh rate (common are 60 FPS/Hz) then use Interval 1, in other cases use Disabled.
In case you get FPS under 25-30, it is good to switch off Anti-aliasing, and if it does not help, it is recommended to use Medium or Low details.
*Note*: There is a possibility that V-sync Interval =1 will not work on some notebooks and all-in-one computers. In such case, go to CG3D installation folder, ‘bin’ subfolder and delete the ogre_release.cfg file. When you start the CG3D again, the first configuration dialog appears, and you must set the V-sync to ‘Disabled’.
The Sound tab allows you to turn sounds, shout sounds and applause sounds on/off.
