Issues fixed[edit]

Force triple buffering[edit]

D3DOverrider[citation needed]
  • Don't force VSync in D3DOverrider, only triple buffering.
  • Enable VSync in game options (or force it in NVIDIA control panel or NVIDIA Inspector).
If you're using SweetFX or another injector, this solution may not work (use workaround below).
RadeonPro[citation needed]
  1. Download and install RadeonPro.
  2. Launch RadeonPro.
  3. Add a profile pointing to ACFC.exe.
  4. Click on the exe profile to select it.
  5. Go to the tweaks tab, leave VSync to driver default, and check triple buffering.
Ctrl-Alt-Del workaround[citation needed]
This method was tested on Windows 7 SP1 on a PC equipped with an NVIDIA graphics card.
  1. Press Ctrl+Alt+Del.
  2. Click the cancel button (or use your Escape key) to return to the desktop.
  3. Go back to the game by clicking its icon on the taskbar.
This workaround makes possible the use of SweetFX or other injectors with triple buffering.
