LightBoost, G-SYNC, Turbo240: 120Hz Strobe Backlight LCDs / No Motion Blur! - Page 44

post #431 of 2929
I just tried this out today for the first time ever and WOW drool.gif

Thanks for all your work on this! It was hard to get working at first because I mainly play BF3 but once I disabled it then it locked in it seemed to work.

I would love to see official support from Nvidia on this but it might be hard to get. Anyways great job! If anyone know any other tips for BF3 let me know.

I will eventually put together a consortium of key people (myself, several sponsored competition gamers, several reviewers such as pcmonitors.info, and several others) to lobby nVidia to provide an easy-to-enable feature. I strongly believe it will sell more nVidia cards than 3D Vision Kits, if advertised correctly. I'm going to wait until I've launched my motion tests before I do this, since the motion tests will massively help this cause.

If any _key_ people (high level competition gamers who compete professional, people in graphics industry, reviewers, even monitor manufacturers, etc) would like to join this group to petition nVidia to provide an easy LightBoost-enable feature in nVidia drivers, I'd like to know.

That does not work. Attempting to create 144 Hz, results in an error message saying that 144 Hz is not supported (even though the display actually supports it).

You can count me in for that. I would also like to see more support from the manufacturers themselves to support this sort of thing regardless of GPU vendor. At least Nvidia are supporting the technology quite actively at the moment (even if for its 3D benefits) and I think that any broader adoption of this for 2D would send a strong message to AMD and the monitor manufacturers themselves.

Optimal settings would be framerate close to 120FPS. (Turn down graphics settings if needed) Contrast to 92, Lightboost to 10%, Complete dark room(due to lower lit monitor), Vegas de-matting procedure for better color and increased brightness

I can't see a 2D LightBoost toggle ever being offered by nVidia. If it's little more than a signal sent to the monitor, AMD would have no legal issue offering it too. While LightBoost is tied to 3DVision, they can't.

I am not particularly bothered about 'LightBoost' being implemented in this way but would certainly like to see strobing/scanning backlights which do a similar thing implemented more readily. Samsung's FS mode being a good example.

This will not stop an attempt to lobby nVidia at some point later this year. If that fails, at least there are other options such as creating a third party utility (after creating an Arduino DDC/CI capture device to record all commands transmitted between computer and monitor). However, it'd be better if nVidia support this in an official, endorsed manner.

Beta testers of this INF file wanted. This INF file benefits users of BENQ XL2411T, ASUS VG248QE, and ASUS VG278HE.

New INF file that enables:
- 120 Hz LightBoost
- 144 Hz NON-lightboost

-> For people who always keep the "3D Stereoscopic" checkbox enabled at all times (those of you who hit Control+T when entering a game), turning on/off LightBoost is as simple as switching between 120 Hz (LB) and 144 Hz (non-LB), and you can use a utility such as MultiRes to have easy switching of LightBoost on/off.

-> For people who want LightBoost to stick without stereoscopic 3D (so you don't have to hit Control+T), you need to enable-Apply-and-then-disable-Apply the "3D Stereoscopic" checkbox in nVidia Control Panel, everytime you switch back to 120 Hz. This will keep LightBoost running, be Battlefield 3 compatible, and eliminate the need for hitting Control+T when you launch a game. MultiRes can still be used, to speed things up a bit.

LightBoost-compatible INF file that now supports 144 Hz NON-LightBoost:

I've been using an inf with 144Hz support and 120Hz lightboost for a month now, got it off some genius from an early post in this thread.

Wonderful inf file
