When i enable it the game get’s all dark, also specialK breaks the cursor in the game, i also have a older installation of windows 1709 on a spare HDD, and the automatic flip mode promotion that was available in that version of windows doesn’t seem to make the game go all dark even if both are supposedly in flip mode.
Hmm according to presentmon tool the reported latency there actually goes lower than use VBLANK in SpecialK if i use the decimal refresh rates as explained by blurbusters dunno if it’s accurate though.
I don’t know what the problem with the cursor is, but for the brightness… I suspect the game uses sRGB gamma. I hate games that use that, it’s incompatible with flip model. I have developed an override for that, but then gamma no longer works correctly. There’s no good solution, the developer should simply not use sRGB.
As for all that silliness about specific rates to get lower input latency, I don’t believe any of that for a second. Special K has a new low latency limiter mode, it doesn’t work by fudging with numbers, it actually works by changing when the finished frame is presented for final output.
I would encourage trying SK’s new low-latency limiter settings instead of following guides that tell you there are magic numbers even if they were written by pretty respectable websites
Yeah your correct the game uses, SRGB, I still find it weird though that flip mode via windows 1709 doesn’t have the brightness problem with SRGB, just curious but how would I enable this SRGB for testing?
EDIT: oh supposedly the override triggers automatically when flip mode is toggled?
Well. I came here to enquire about the same mouse cursor issue. Is there any useful investigation that could help shed light on that? I’d love to use the frame rate limiter if possible, but it sounds like that isn’t practical either?
basically the mouse cursor ingame is only showing when your moving the mouse, if you enter speciialK options panel the mouse cursor will always show as it should, but it’ll be switching between the SpecialK cursor, and the ingame one while moving the mouse cursor.
Windows Defender registers itself as a shell execute hook. Windows Defender can block known bad commands from passing through the shell execute chain before they are executed.
Windows Defender implements the IOfficeAntiVirus interface to scan Microsoft ActiveX controls that Internet Explorer installs. Additionally, the IAttachmentExecute interface calls the IOfficeAntiVirus interface after Windows Defender enables the Attachment Manager Group Policy object. The IAttachmentExecute interface calls the IOfficeAntiVirus interface at that time to request that antivirus providers scan attachments.
I tried that and it crashes in all 3 modes of PoE 64-bit exe. (Fullscreen, Fullscreen Windowed, and Windowed).
I discovered it works with the 32-bit version of PoE, but that is really more of a legacy mode.
Special K actually provided crash logs this time… is there anything in here?
