This video shows me dying. You can see the black screen when I hit the ground.

As socketus mentions, this is a BF3 bug. It happened to me when I enabled Lightboost, too, but loads of other people have it on the interwebs, too. I bet it flickers black when you press N, too, right?

As socketus also mentions, haha, the fix is to hit "Apply Fullscreen Resolution" in the video options. Or just switch to a different res and back to your main one. It's all fixed! Sometimes, it happens again, but this fix works 100% of the time.

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 ;(

Yup. This is it! smile.gif Haha, yeah...I really thought it might help my K/D.

BTW, if anyone wants to try the BF4 Beta, don't. LOL, even with my OC'd i5-4670K and OC'd GTX 770, I can't break 100FPS even on low @ 1280 x 720. Hopefully, drivers and game improvements will fix it by release time, but, currently, it's pretty rough.

---

Anyways, I got Lightboost a few weeks ago. It's CHANGED the way I game. I just ran past people, swivel back really quick (no motion blur!), and pop in the face with a shotgun. It's almost like cheating, haha. biggrin.gif

Question 1: sometimes, I "test" motion blur by trying to see focus on my mouse pointer as I move it horizontally. Lightboost helps with that, but I still can't focus perfectly on it. It just becomes a bit of blur, even if I move it preeeeety slowly. It is a 125Hz mouse, though: can anybody do this? Is this not feasible with current hardware?

Question 2: the text scrolling at testufo.com is GREAT. I can read it so perfectly. Is there a way to get this in regular browsing? I try it and it's quite a bit blurrier, particularly on Firefox 24. Chrome is better, so maybe it is just Firefox.

It's just like gaming back in the CRT days, when motion blur didn't interfere with FPS gaming. Circle strafing like that becomes easy again with LightBoost.

1. Chrome: Chromium Smooth Scroller Extension, with mousewheel.
2. Internet Explorer has smooth scrolling using arrow keys. but IE doesn't do 120fps on TestUFO.
3. FireFox scrolling is still too stuttery. Still improving.

Personally, I just use Chromium Smooth Scroller with Google Chrome, so I can read while scrolling. I don't need to stop scrolling on my LightBoost LCD to read text!

All monitors have different calibrations, so I'm not sure what's the "perfect" calibration is. However, the LightBoost FAQ does provide settings to "undo" the LightBoost gamma bleaching.

nVidia Control Panel Desktop Brightness = 52%
nVidia Control Panel Desktop Contrast = 45%
nVidia Control Panel Desktop Gamma = 0.70

This will bring more of the colors back, after being washed-out by LightBoost. There are also more picture calibration tips in the LightBoost FAQ, for improving LightBoost image quality above and beyond this, but it can get challenging since games often do not honor the Control Panel settings.

Got it. Shucks, Chrome is missing some extensions, but maybe I should make the jump!

Can anybody with the XL2420T/TX confirm if, when using ToastyX's Beta2 Strobelight utility, the LB brightness setting does not retain when you turn off the screen or when it goes into power saving mode? Please help me on this. Thanks.

Some monitors don't remember the brightness setting.

Can you adjust the "LightBoost" setting via the monitor's menus and see if it saves this way? (Adjusting this on BENQ can be a bit confusing: You may have to scroll downwards in the Picture Adjustments list in the monitor onscreen menus, in the same list as Brightness and Contrast, in order to reveal the LightBoost adjustment setting via the monitor menus on a BENQ monitor)

It does save it when I manually do it in the OSD menu of my XL2420TX. But why is this happening? ToastyX told me that adjusting the LB brightness through software and by manually adjusting it is basically the same and the monitor SHOULD remember it.

My monitor does remember it.

However, certain monitor models has bugs with remembering picture adjustments transmitted over the DDC channel on the DVI cable (using the VESA Monitor Control Command Set). Your monitor might be one of these.

Oh ok. Which other monitors experience this?

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.

Im having this problem too. With the new nvidia beta drivers strobelightbeta works in activate all displays mode, but when you change to span displays in surround, it seems nvidia have changed the way it performs this and has made strobelightbeta broken..In CRU the new display name is called NVS10DE - NV 1x3. In Strobelightbeta the new display name in is NV 1x3 (1 active)*. So 1 monitor with save changes applied. But lightboost will not activate.. I have two VG278HEs and one VG278HR.,

*edit. It appears it will go into lightboost if you select Maximize 3d Performance also..
