Weird, tried it on the latest NVIDIA drivers and the framerate seems fine. An ancient version of DXGL, version 0.1.6, does seem to trigger the slowdown. Perhaps I should check if the system timers are being modified.

EDIT: It appears my system timer resolution is switching to 1ms when the game is running, perhaps due to Windows 10's gaming optimizations kicking in.

Well, I am under Windows XP, so that is perhaps the reason the framerate for me is halved.

I am subscribing to this topic so that I be informed if there is a planned fix for this.

Hello Mr Feely!

I have been eager lately to know if there has been any new development regarding this? Or, interest on your part for fixing this?

(I am still most interested in a fix for this!)

Cheers,
twipley

EDIT: the game is running just fine here under XP without DXGL, but through DXGL the framerate, as noted above, is halved.

Thanks.

Hi. I'm about to embark on major updates to DXGL. Fixing this sync issue will be something I will try to do, but I cannot make any promises in this phase of updates.

Hey there!

I am still visiting this thread as well as the download page every week, so as to check for any news. :)

I am aware that you are still working hard on major updates to DXGL, and I wanted here not just to reaffirm my interest in a fix to this sync issue, but also to lend a few words of encouragement: keep up the impeccable work; it is greatly appreciated by current and future users ! ;)

Thanks for the support! Life has been happening, so I haven't always felt the urge to work on DXGL unfortunately. A rewrite of a portion of it is still in progress, nearing a point where I can commit some changes and have something half-working.

Just noticed your reply as I try to clean up the spam which has been choking up my approval queue.
