Default Refresh rate problem

I have a GF4ti4200 and 5336 drivers on Slackware 9.1 and all my games (UT2k3 and Frozen Bubble) run in 60Hz refrash rate. My desktop resolution is 1280x1024@85Hz and I run games in 1024x768; I also tried starting them in my desktop resolution, but they also started at 60Hz.

Is there a way my games could run @>60Hz.

change your desktop resolution to 1024x768 and change it to 85hz then, that will help

I tried that before and it didn't help.
I even put a line in my XF86Config file for resolution 1024x768@85Hz, and it didn't help, either.

Default Re: Refresh rate problem

Hey, you seem to have the opposite problem I'm having...for me, my UT only plays at the same refresh rate as my linux desktop, and I cant get my linux desktop to change...lol.

In your case, since UT seems to be controlling your refresh rate, this solution might work...


In UT2003, try this:

1) Open the /system/ut2003.ini file in a text editor

2) Find the section called: [D3DDrv.D3DRenderDevice]

3) Edit the following line to your liking: DesiredRefreshRate=85

WARNING: DO NOT EXCEED YOUR MONITORS SPECS
