Here's an experiment for you to try:
- When you exit the setup wizard, you need to switch back to the custom LightBoost resolution (Vertical Total 1149 in CRU or nVidia Custom resolution). That's switching to the lightboost.bin resolution in ToastyX CRU.

nVidia LightBoost is a two-step unlock:
(A) Encrypted vendor lock in the monitor. Once the green light turns on once (even if it goes out), you're golden until the monitor is unplugged.
(B) Custom timings and resolution with a Vertical Total of 1149. This brings LightBoost back easily, but only if (A) is done first.

When I try to enable lightboost with either selecting the Maximise 3D Performance, Activate all displays or Disable SLI options in the nvidia control panel it works perfectly with either the Strobelightbeta2 or the CRU method. With the CRU method it works even after just a reboot from injecting lightboost.bin. There is no need to enter the Set up stereoscopic 3d step for it to be enabled.. (the monitors are just setup up as generic plug and play monitors in device manager too btw. No overrides or anything)

But from this point if I select Span displays with Surround, lightboost does not stay enabled and has never been able to be enabled either.

I checked after I tried both methods and nvidia is saying that the timing that is in effect for Vertical total is 1149. .

*edit... It has just occured to me that when using the CRU method and entering the Setup Stereoscopic 3D step that windows actually does all this in single display mode and not surround.. So yes it will turn on the emitter at this point but when you exit or finish this step, it it then reverts back to surround mode and the original NON working frequency..

**Edit #2.. The Hardware ID under the details tab in the monitor properties in Control Panel are saying its a NVS10DE. And that's not whats its been calling it up until now.. It has been ACI27E2 (The Asus HR) until now.. Seems nvidia arent releasing the correct monitor details to the software..

I am using Strobelight by ToastyX, and i would like to know..

1) If using that "crt mode" can have any bad effect on the monitor itself, since I figure that using it, is like overclocking ? (or am i wrong?)

2) If its better to always have it ON, or to turn it OFF when not gaming ?

3) If its ok that i have 125fps in-game (Quake Live) and 120hz with lightboost ON ? Or should i put in-game fps 120 ?

It's a native feature of the monitor, as it's normally used for nVidia 3D Vision. You're just using LightBoost solely for a motion blur eliminating purpose. (The LightBoost FAQ covers "What is LightBoost?", mentioning its use for simultaneously eliminating 3D crosstalk and eliminating motion blur)

It's a personal user preference.

Depends on how the game works. If the game physics is running at 125fps and you are playing competitively, it is probably better at 125.
On the other hand, if you're more concerned about eliminating stutters completely, then 120fps has less stutters than 125fps, since it matches the refresh rate. Pros and cons.

I believe it's the drivers as well.
One user reported that 3D Vision has stopped working too (3D glasses) and LightBoost is a part of that subsystem (even if you use it for 2D), so that may be related.

quick question. I've been using the toasty x utility with my vg278h while playing bf4. today I hooked up an old 17" 60hz monitor I had laying around to run temp monitoring apps as well as the bf4 battlemap, which is web based. will this cause a problem?


I noticed my eyes were getting blurry at the end of the game and I'm trying to figure out if thus had anything to do with it.


so primary monitor is 1920x1080 120hz
secondary is 1280x1024 60hz.

nvidia beta drivers 331.40 I believe.

ouch ! yah, I'd guess from trying to look at a 120hz monitor and switching over to the 60hz monitor for a quick look, that's gotta be dizzying.

btw, you reference the BF4 web-based battlemap - I'm in the beta, but I have no idea what you're talking about - can you EX-SPLAIN ???

the map that is in the lower left corner. if you have 2 monitors,or 1 monitor and a second laptop or tablet you can view that map on a different screen. when I join a server it will load the game on the right screen, while on the left screen is my browser. once the game has loaded there will be an option on the browser-screen- screen- that says view battlemap or something along those lines. now the map is nice and big on that screen

I've had mixed feeling with the toastyX app. The majority of the time it works great, but sometimes it gets a little flakey.

The only problems I've had with it are:
in BF3 when I died I'd have a brief black screen (<1s)
When I change my bindings in BF3, the app would always turn on and off, asking if I wanted to save the display settings.

Recently, sometimes if I'm typing on a browser and I hit 5 or 6, the brightness of the screen would increase or decrease and the 5 and 6 wouldn't display on the browser. Id have to disable the strobe light application to get the keyboard to work properly.

Other than that it's been good. ~90% of the time.
