So that is where those options were hiding, I totally missed that! I believe I disabled the FrameRateStabilizer & MaxFPS the very first day with slash commands, probably from the warnings /showFPS gives you about performance.

Here are those settings [Image].
  • WinXP Pro SP3
  • Intel Core 2 Duo E8500 (OC'd to 3.8GHz)
  • 2GB DDR2 Memory (FSB:DRAM 1:1)
  • Nvidia GTX 285, 1GB DDR3 Memory PCIE 2.0
Well I messed with all those settings in Fullscreen, and there was no change, garbage scow every time.

However, setting the max fps to 30 has stopped the tearing in Windowed Maximized! I didn't want to set it that low, but even trying it as a slash command the tearing didn't stop till setting it to 30. So far I haven't noticed any visual difference, seems pretty smooth (FPS is nearly always max, so far only drops down to 24-26 right after zoning, but doesn't last long). I'm damn thankful for this, not sure what the differences between Fullscreen and Windowed Maximized are besides v-sync.

I'd still like for it to work in Fullscreen. I still don't understand why it is always perfect in Windowed Maximized, and screwed up in Fullscreen.
