Looks like we are probably going to be playing Fallout 4 at 60 fps, but at least we have g-sync smile.gif And hopefully a working fix to the hud at 3440 x 1440 soon....

Everything has been fine here, except for fast monsters however it's only been ghouls which I was assuming were meant to be fast.

Good to hear.

Which "way" did you uncap the 60? One way says for nvidia owners all you have to do is select v-sync off globally in the nvidia control panel and this uncaps fallout 4 (and obviously removes v-sync for all other games you may be playing as well).

The other way says you have to edit the ini file.

Which did you do ? And have you tried lock picking at >60 fps?

Actually I originally did it via the .ini but I've just discovered it doesn't need to be done at all.

I just set iPresentInterval back to 1 and launched my game, and it's still able to reach 100fps. It seems bound in some way to g-sync. I'm using the monitor's built in FPS counter to confirm g-sync is working and the actual fps.

Disabling v-sync seems to be what's causing some issue, but maybe I'm missing it. How exactly does the day/night cycle go crazy? Mine has been, from what I can tell, totally normal. My settings within inspector are the default (v-sync on, standard/g-sync on).

Also, I'm obsessive about picking locks in the game, no troubles. Only thing is ghoul's are fast, but it looks natural, and good.

Good to hear man.

The day-night cycle was what I had read about Skyrim >60 fps. Since it uses the same engine as Fallout 4, people were assuming it might have the same problem. However these may have been people who haven't actually played Fallout 4 uncapped so maybe they were just guessing (i still haven't played the game, won't get to till Thursday night )

I just changed mine to 3340x1440 in ini edits and get no other problems. 100hz and no wonkey stuff
post #306 of 3055
I've just spent four hours playing Fallout 4, and it was basically a four hour celebration of the monitor.

Here's the thing. I can't get SLI to work with this game. I installed Nvidia's so-called 'game ready' drivers, but there's simply no SLI profile to speak of (not exactly sure why Nvidia thinks these drivers are 'game ready'... but whatever). Some people are claiming you can force SLI through the control panel - but it didn't work for me. So I'm left with one GTX 980 functioning instead of two. This is the reason fixed frequency 3440x1440 monitors were never a consideration for me. If SLI doesn't work, then you're basically screwed.

My frames were all over the place, fluctuating between 45 and 75 FPS. On a fixed frequency monitor this would've been a disaster of epic proportions. On the X34, however, I barely noticed the fluctuations. In fact, as with Watch Dogs, Gsync, even when it's around 60 Hz, is noticeably smoother than Vsync at 60 Hz. Simply put, this monitor is the bees frickin knees.

As far as the scan lines are concerned, it's now a non-issue for me. The only place I really noticed them (and it was VERY minor to begin wth) was in the pendulum demo, which I've now uninstalled.

Am I giving up 3440x1440 because of scan lines I can only make out in a demo at low FPS? Hell no. Am I giving up G-sync for this reason? Hell no. How about walking away from a maximum refresh rate of 100 Hz? Hell no again. No monitor comes close to this one.

If I have to accept minor scan lines around 45 FPS, which I can't actually see in-game, then so be it. How silly. This is the best monitor I've ever owned. Guess I won the lottery. If some of you guys have the exact same scan lines I do, and you've decided to return your monitor for that reason, then I'm afraid to say you're completely barking mad. The associated problems you'll have with a fixed frequency display will be way more consequential. As far as the upcoming Asus monitor is concerned - it only goes up to 75Hz - no thanks.

I can only assume that some people have it much worse than others. Honestly, though, I'm not convinced of that. Anyhow, people should make up their own minds. I'm off to bed now. I'm exhausted.

Mikey:

Did you try this?

So, this is my first post. I decided to post to help those of you with SLI. As it turns out, Fallout 4 doesn't use SLI as of today (launch Date). I have 2 X GTX780 in SLI. I have noticed that when running the game, the second GPU utilization is always 0%. SO, this is what I did to force the game to use SLI (both GPUs are at 100%).
Launch Nvidia Control Panel--> Manage 3D Settings --> Program Settings --> Select Fallout 4 (Fallout4.exe)-->change SLI Rendering Mode to: Force Alternate Frame Rendering 2. it will warn you against changing this setting, just hit okey and save.
Now, Before this modification my average FPS was 30-40. After the modification, my FPS is always at 60 fps. I'm running at 2560 X 1440 with every thing on ULTRA ,FXAA, 16X filtering, except God Ray on Medium. everything else on ULTRA. My FPS never dips below 60.
I have played through the first 20 minutes of the game and I didn't notice any graphical abnormalities.
Hope this helps some of You. and enjoy this wonderful game

and someone else in the same thread is saying SLI works fine with new latest drivers:

Hmm. Works fine here (with and without the FPS cap removed)... 2x970 G1 Gaming, 5820k @4.5, 64GB RAM, Win 7 and today's 358.91 driver, forced to AFR 2. Haven't tested it heavily for any weird graphical glitches, but the game does start and uses both GPUs. So far it runs great at 2560x1600 fully maxed.

(heres the full thread):

another thread about forcing AFR 2:

Im not at home yet to test fallout 4 (I have SLI too), still on vacation.

Some of us have them bad enough to see on the desktop, and are pretty ticked off about it. We get that you aren't convinced.

It's just that I haven't seen many screenshots of this problem. If everyone's having scan line issues, then there should be a bunch of screenshots from multiple people. But there aren't.

I have scan lines too. But they only reveal themselves when my monitor is displaying at around 45Hz, and they're ridiculously subtle. At this point, it's impossible to tell if we're all having the same issue - maybe some people are just more bothered by it than others.

More screenshots would have cleared this up. 99% of the people returning their monitors never even posted a single screenshot of the problem. That alone is reason for suspicion.

The people exhibiting this problem need to post screenshots of their own - not link to someone else's. So I have to ask: did you yourself post screenshots? Sorry if I missed them. Just trying to understand this issue in greater detail. It's still a bit cloudy, tbh.

I've seen a fair share of screenshots from various people, and myself posted screenshots of my issue before the conversation of scan lines even begun. I noticed them that fast in GTA > 1 hour. But kept telling myself it was fine ,and maybe I won't notice it normally since I had been looking for certain kinds of artifacts at the time.. I do notice them, constantly, in game/on my desktop and more as each day goes by. I look over at the blue on this site, right next to my post and guess what I see? Scan lines. All over the left side. Now I see them from any normal viewing distance.

If you're loving Fallout 4, and trying your hardest to not focus at the thick black lines on the left side of your screen, you'd want it returned asap too. Since you don't see them this badly, clearly your unit isn't as bad or you don't have great eyes. I'm assuming your eyes are fine, and that each unit is different. Speaking of Fallout, it's been the worst for scanlines. Even when i'm running at 98fps, I see them on everything lightly colored on the left side of my screen which has left me a little disgruntled this afternoon.
