View Full Version : evil ogl stutter

i know this subject has been beaten to death, the bad part is, i dealt with it on this board once before, took months of fooling to get it to quit but it finnaly did, now if only i could remember what it was... grrrrr. i was stuck on an old celly board for months after i killed my xp1700, now i got this 1600 kickin, everything seems groovy, except in ogl games, wolfenstien in particular, i get this terrible stutter. drives me crazy. if anyone has any ideas, i'm open to try just about anything, i've done 2 fresh installs to the same effect. anything good comin from omega lately? haven't checked since on a 533 celly video performance from my 8500 didn't matter for squat....

You're not running anything in the background, are you?

It could be that you have VSync off. It's probably not the answer but you could give it a try. With VSync off your card is rendering more frames than your monitor's refresh rate.

thanx for the tips. no, nuthing in the background, i even tried with the onboard sound disabled in the bios, thought maybe the crappy ac97 was causin it. no go. i'll try the v-sync, i always keep it disabled. maybe it'll work the other way better.

grrrrr, nothing with v-sync, and absolutely no change with the lastest driver from omega. i mean, no change at all. makes me think it's hardware setting from the bios. what's driving me crazy is i had this same issue last time i set this board up, and i was able to fix it. can't for the life of me remember what it was...
