Help with the ole PC



I started to play tomb raider last night and i noticed on my monitor during the cutscenes a line that would run across my screen and it was quite aggrivating. I figured it may be the settings for the game as i do not see this line on arma II. Any ideaa how to fix it?

take a screen shot. If it comes and goes then it might be settings. Could also require a reinstall/redownload

I'm thinking it could be the resolution it's set to, make sure the game is set to the native resolution of the monitor. It's just that game?

Yup. Arma runs fine, but of course less powerful.

re: Help with the ole PC


is it tearing by any chance? what is your monitor refresh rate and are you tracking how many frames your getting?

That maybe it. Im not tracking so im not sure. The rate seems to be smooth, but this line seems to appear when things do get fast in the CGI and go away when things are slower.

re: Help with the ole PC


That's tearing. It happens when your gpu is producing more images than your monitor can handle. I recommend monitoring your frames so you have an idea when it happens because it usually happens like I said. However there are time I have experienced when it is less frames than that which I don't understand why still.

You can either up your settings which will lower frame rates and possibly find a happy medium or enable vsync. Problem with vsync is it can lower your frames too much. It's a tricky feature.

Besides vsync. What other settings do i need to fool with? Settings in game correct?
