Lightboost questions/problems

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
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.

Easy fix for the Battlefield 3 problem:
Go select your monitor, hit "Apply Fullscreen Resolution" in the video options.
That fixes the problem.

Also you shouldn't attempt to turn on/off LightBoost while in the middle of a game.
Quit the game first before turning on/off LightBoost via the Strobelight menu.
