Gsync compatible not working only in league of legends

Title. I don't get why it just won't work with this game, with amd freesync it worked so the "vrr functionality" of the monitor is indeed enabled.
Other games gsync work fine.

EDIT: fixed fiddling with nvcp


EDIT2: i have again the same problem and can't fix it -.-

You need to turn on gsync for windowed mode.

If it's not working then you're in Vsync mode of Windows or what ever OS you use. Such as being in Windowed mode and not having Windowed mode Async enabled or Windows forcing Vsync on or the game forcing Vsync on in it's windowed mode. Some games are so bad that they force Vsync all the time no matter what you do (short of hacking the game outright or a forcing tool that can alter these sort of settings in the game).

Yes, it's always enabled for windowed and full screen plus "enable settings for the selected display model"

League is not vsynced by default, i can go all the way up to 800 fps.
Windows 10 does indeed force vsync but that shouldn't affect full screen game?

I changed my game to windowed full screen with windowed gsync on, disabled gsync in game and it was working. I don't play league much anymore as I'm an ADC main without time to grind and I'm stuck in silver where no one protects or helps the ADC ever, including the supports who are always autofilled, afk, feed or bait you.

What do you mean "disabled gsync in game"? Btw i feel you ex plat 2 adc main now toplaner.
I mainly quit adc because of arm tendonitis but in reality ADC sucks, it's the most mechanical role along with midlane (with the SMALL difference that you have to wait 10 min atleast to be somewhat useful and you have a subhuman stealing your exp) and usually shine in diamond+ (used to be plat, but now every trash otp can be atleast plat) where you actually have a team playing around you.

Well that's interesting because when i clean install drivers at first gsync works, then it stops after the first game ._.

Are you using a displayport cable?

The Viewsonic XG2401 is not a Nvidia validated G-Sync compatible monitor. So you can have 1 out 475 monitors that failed Nvidia testing.

"G-SYNC Compatible Testing, Phase 1 Complete: Only 5% of Adaptive-Sync Monitors Made The Cut

By Andrew Burnes on May 27, 2019 | Featured StoriesComputex 2019G-SYNCHardware
Since we announced support for Adaptive-Sync Variable Refresh Rate monitors, we’ve been testing every model available, with those that passed several tests being marked “G-SYNC Compatible”. This validation ensures that buyers receive a baseline Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) experience that makes gaming smoother, clearer, and more enjoyable.

We’ve completed our first phase of testing, getting our hands on as many Adaptive-Sync monitors as we could, and we’ve got the results ready to share with you.

To date, 503 VRR monitors have passed through our lab, and 28 (5.56%) have received G-SYNC Compatible validation, meaning 475 monitors failed.

Why? 273 failed for lacking a VRR range of at least 2.4:1 (e.g. 60Hz-144Hz), meaning you were unlikely to get any of the benefits of VRR as your framerate wasn’t within the tight range offered.

And while some may have had a sufficient VRR range, 202 of those also failed due to image quality (flickering, blanking) or other issues. This could range in severity, from the monitor cutting out during gameplay (sure to get you killed in PvP MP games), to requiring power cycling and Control Panel changes every single time.

And in 33 other cases, we couldn’t get hold of a monitor to test as they were no longer manufactured." https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce...le-validation/

I think that they didn't even bother testing xg2401 because it's old.
Freesync was 100% fine and i am using Gsync 100% fine in other games, it's just LoL that gets buggy and it's capable of gsync only on the first game after clean driver install.
