Default Re: There is still something that seemingly cannot be done in DX9,

k007, which dosnt really mean anything. ^^ 60hz is the signal refresh..but whats the monitor refresh? Like LCD, the screen has a specific refresh. Crt monitors that arnt ancient usually have refresh speeds capable of handling up to 120hz or more. This is why they give headaches when they are set to 60hz. There is actually a period of time where the screen is black or very dim inbetween frames because it refreshes the screen and then waits twice as long to refresh then it is designed for and the image is faded before the next refresh. This is the flicker everyone hates. This however would not produce smearing. This produces tearing if the frames arnt synced.
