OK first I don't know too much about this, but what is happening is: New updated system(athlon 2.0 Ghz/GeForce7600 Video/2.0 RAM/ [called a gaming system]) Now when I play PAcific fighters I am getting a shearing of the video. I don't know how else to discribe it. I am using an IR tracker Pro4.0 and when I move my head certain horizontal sections of the screen seem to lag behind the rest other sections of the screen creating a jagged edge to everything, but only briefly, it is actually almost imperceptable but none the less still there. I am running the screen at 1024x960x32 (excellent setting, anyway) and the monitor is set for this also. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

turn on vsync and triple buffering to fix this problem with trackir. works for my 7800.

this is known as "tearing".

I guess my learning curve is a little steeper. I know WHAT you mean, but just exactly WHERE do I find this Vsync, and filter. In the IR tracker? Mine is the Pro 4.0 from natural point.

Graphics properties for your card. In XP right click on your desktop, select properties, click on the setup tab and then hit 'advanced'.

Depending on your card you should be able to find what you're looking for there...

Track IR requires that Vsync be enabled, othewise you get tearing of the image when you move your head.

you are changing your nvidia video card settings. took me a bit to figure out what all these settings do. v sync will stop the tearing. enabling triple buffering should help performance. look up double and triple buffering if you're wondering http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/354.gif

to change settings:
control panel -&gt; display -&gt; settings tab -&gt; advanced button -&gt; geforce tab -&gt; performance & quality settings -&gt; change basic settings to advanced settings.
