LightBoost, G-SYNC, Turbo240: 120Hz Strobe Backlight LCDs / No Motion Blur! - Page 155

yes,one other seems to have solved the problem. Let's see what exactly the fix seems to it19.gif.
post #1542 of 2929
Anyone see problems like this? I posted a separate thread, but I thought I'd post it here too.





So I recently downloaded the toatsyX strobelight application to enable/disable the lightboost on my Asus VG278H monitor.

After I upgraded my browsers, I could clearly see the difference looking at their test pages (UFO, map etc.)

The problems I am having occur when playing BF3.

Problem 1.
When I die, I get a quick black screen.
This video shows me dying. You can see the black screen when I hit the ground.

Problem 2 and 3.
If strobe is enabled and I try to disable it in game (ctrl+alt+-) I have to (alt + tab) to desktop then click on the game to keep playing. If not, it's a permanent black screen.
Once I'm back in the game everything seems fine until I die. Once I die, after a long delay the strobe turns back on .

This video starts with light boost on. (LED on top of monitor)
When I turn it off, it goes completly black and I have to alt tab back into the game (LED OFF)
When I die, long black screen, then LED turns back on

Problem 4.
I just noticed this last night. For some reason my audio and mouse sensitivity settings don't stay saved in game. I don't think this has anything to do with toastyx, I think it's Origin's cloud service. Anyway, whenever I go change it I'll hit "back" then it asks if I want to save settings. I click "yes." After that the screen goes black and my 3D LED turns off, disabling the lightboost, and it asks me if I want to keep the changes to my display settings. I didn't do anything in my display settings in game. I click "no" and the LED turns back on, enabling lightboost, and I click "resume" and continue playing.



Any insight on why these problems are occurring?

Sorry for the lousy videos.

Has this ever happened without LightBoost, and without ToastyX Strobelight?
If it only happens with Strobelight, have you posted on the ToastyX Strobelight creator's site (monitortests.com support forum) in the Strobelight thread?

Generally, you're not supposed to turn on/off LightBoost while in the middle of a game. You need to exit the game before switching modes, and stay in the mode while playing.

If your game (BF3) is automatically switching graphics modes everytime you die, this could be a problem. Try re-running strobelight-setup and installing only "120Hz strobed" (no other modes). Reboot. Try BF3. Does the black screens stop happening? If they stop happening, that confirms that BF3 is trying to do automatic graphics mode switches everytime you die, and the two different "120Hz" modes are potentially interfering with each other.

(To turn off LightBoost, re-re-run strobelight setup and reinstall a non-strobed mode. Or in an emergency, just simply unplug your monitor for 5 seconds to turn off LightBoost. The unplug method works in disabling LightBoost even while in the middle of a videogame, but I wouldn't recommend this practice, except as a debugging / troubleshooting technique)

I will keep this monitor until my last days.
Most people aren't having LightBoost problems, thanks to ToastyX Strobelight. Many thousands have downloaded that utility, and only few are complaining with posts -- so I think the problems-to-happy users ratio is much better today. But there are also a lot more LightBoost users today than six months ago (thanks to the LightBoost 2D publicity this year)

I'm happy and I know it !!

about DirtyTrickster's bf3 monitor black screen when you die problem - that sounds a lot like the problem in bf3 that is easily fixed by selecting your monitor in the game's options. Sounds stupid, but somehow the game has lost the sense of your monitor being the selected one. Made my black screens disappear, but not in-game deaths ;(

It does stay in lightboost, just not retaining the right brightness.

@mdrjhon, do you have any idea with this?

Simple solution happens to me aswell.
Found it accidentaly.Whenever you enter the game go to options set to 120.xx or 119.xx hz the slider it would be at 144hz dunno why but defaults to that.No more annoying black screen.
post #1548 of 2929
Οk has anyone here with lightboost in surround mode installed the new 341.40 beta driver for Battlefields?
I cant get it to work with Lightboost on at surround mode no matter what, tried about 3 hours everything.
Every monitor works fine in mirror mode+lightboost but when i set surround it installs a new shell 3x1 Surround or sthing.If i tweak that with CRU or strobelight mode nothing happens.
Stays in non lightboost.

mdrejhon, what is the most recommended nvidia control panel color settings for the XL2420TX?
post #1550 of 2929
Also, can anyone with the BenQ XL2420TX using ToastyX's Beta2 Strobelight utility confirm if the LB brightness settings resets to its initial value when it is powered off or it goes into power saving mode regardless of the setting set by the utility?

Thanks.
