I use V Sync to stick to 60 fps. I can;t stand screen tearing when you turn quickly and the screen splits in half , happens all time if i don't sync. Surely having a FPS that fluctuates constantly between 60-100 and comes with screen tearing is more detrimental to aiming than having a V Sync 60 that is Consistent (people say that cause input lag). I like having consistentsy anyway.
Im playing Ultra textures and the rest settings medium/high.
It's better to use ;
gametime.maxvariablefps 60 ( you can do it ingame too)
You can set it in your user.cfg file inside battlefield 4 folder mate.
V-Sync is an absolute trash and causes just too much input lag.
Thanks Quantum so its better to disable v sync in the game option and enable it in the config notepad? I will try this later. I did try it on the nvidia panel before but it didnt work very well and felt laggier than in game sync.
tried it and it didn't work. Forcing the 60 fps in a user.cfg was very glitchy and a bit trippy, the backgrounds would wobble occasionally and I could literally feel the input lag. Also tried it in Nvidia control panel and it wasnt a clean v sync, there was still some judders and tears. In game Vsync works the most smoothly on this game for me.
Go to your battlefield 4 folder. so that would be program file/ origin game/ battlefield 4. To know its the correct folder it should be the same folder as Battlefield .exe files (the launch files with the BF4 Logo on them).
Create a new text file (notepad symbol).
Write the parameters you want in the file. eg. " Perf Overlay Draw FPS=1" (this is to show your FPS and will check if the config file worked)
Press Save As. in the lower drop down box choose 'All File types'. You can then save it as a .cfg instead of a notepad file
(just make sure you save it as "user.cfg" as the save name the .cfg should then change it from a notepad file to a config cfg , if done correctly it will have a settings cog symbol instead of a notepad symbol). You can test if it works by launching the game, and if it shows the FPS in the top right it has worked.
