I managed to get CCC reinstalled on my desktop. I changed vsynch to "on, unless applicaiton specifies" and turned on triple buffering for the system settings so that it will apply to any game. Is this the best way? I tried uningine heaven with these settings and the tearing is still there. I might have a look at those radeon pro tools linked above.
edit: I tried radeonpro and that did the trick. The settings I used for my bioshock were:
Vsync control (drop down) : "Always on"
I checked off "triple buffereing" and put 60 hz in the box since my monitor is 60 hz
left "Use advanced D3D9... etc" unchecked
"dynamic framerate control" checked and set my fps to 60 since my monitor refreshes at 60 hz
and that was all I did and the tearing is gone
edit: Any idea how to turn off the frame rate display that happens in yellow at the top left?Edited by M0reP0wer - 6/22/13 at 9:26pm
