NW.JS Screen Tearing

  • I'm having massive tearing issues with nw.js using the latest beta of C2 and the latest NW.JS, I'm using fullscreen scale. Is it a v-sync issue?

  • 0.13 alpha 7?

  • Yes, v0.13.0 alpha 7 (Chromium 47) [Requires r217+]

  • Is it the same in desktop Chrome? Both are based on v47 now.

    Are you sure you haven't disabled vsync in nVidia control panel/Catalyst control center/any other graphics settings? Changing settings there has been known to cause problems in the past. By default Chrome should have pretty good v-sync by now.

    Yes, it looks the same in Chrome. Here's my settings from my nvidia panel (it does the same when set to integrated):

    I have no idea why it's calling it russian roulette!

  • I get screen tearing too with nwjs 13 alpha 7 and nwjs 12. It doesn't help to set vsync to 'on' instead of 'use application setting' in nvidia control panel.

    System:

    Windows 7 SP1

    Geforce GTX750 / driver 353.62

    Turn on Windows AERO. Without it Windows does not utilize the Vsync function.

  • Sorry I forget to mention in this thread it works! Switch to an AERO theme.

  • or simply go to win10. no aero bullshit there

  • or simply go to win10. no aero bullshit there

    No, just all of the other bullshit that comes with Windows 10

  • It works! Thanks That's a weird oversight from MS...

    Omg don't! Heh

  • actually they're pretty solid now after 10586 update. yes i know privacy is an issue, but you can turn it all off without any hacks and shit. haven't had a problem since i've reformatted (a couple of months ago) till now. everything works perfectly (and 10x faster then win7) (the trick was actually in doing a clean install, which most of people didn't do so they had problems :/)

  • Have you tested this against alpha8?

    I hope they get it in order, this is the kind of stuff reviewers kick your shins for.

    That's good to hear. But I still don't trust em Between their 'offer you can't refuse'-tactics and dodgy EULA-clauses buried under a ton of legalese they're resembling some kind of two-bit malware business these days.

    I wasn't aware alpha8 was out, will test.

  • Personally wouldn't touch Win 10 with a barge pole. There aggressive push is borderline criminal. I'm sticking with Win7 until it is retired then hopping over to a competitor.
