Bug #630

VSync not working in OpenGL

GTX 1070 8GB


Visible screen tearing and not working vsync with OpenGL playing Zelda BOTW.
Even forcing from NVidia Profile Inspector VSync=ON does nothing... Looks like OGL mode in CEMU forces framerate cap with vsync disabled.
I have other OpenGL games perfectly working where VSync ON/OFF works as expected.

Same with Vulkan anyway... tearing is visible looking around with RSTICK.

OpenGL application-controlled vsync is pretty unreliable. It's recommended to just use the vendor control panel vsync option for that.

The Vulkan vsync settings in Cemu should work just fine. Did you accidentally set vsync in Nvidia's control panel to "off" instead of "Use the 3D application setting"?

I've discovered that setting Options > General settings > Graphics > Vulkan: Async=Off , Async shader compile=On, and from NVidia Profile Inspector for CEMU profile: Vertical Sync=Force On + Unknown settings enabled, at the bottom: 0x80857A28=0x00000001, 0x809D5F60=0x08000001, I finally got rid of tearing on my 1070 8GB (Max-P) + NVidia 512.96 SD.
Double or triple vsync settings from CEMU Graphics options didn't work and were causing heavy tearing on my system!

... so VSync in OGL or VSync with Double/Triple buffering in VK, didn't work with Zelda BOTW (running modded at 60fps). Still tearing. Using VK with VSync=Off and forcing VSync from NVidia drivers solved my tearing issues.

in comment #5 there's a typo: of course was "Vulkan: Vsync=Off" underlined, not Async.
