League of Legends VRR how to?

Post by Synoxia » 29 Dec 2019, 00:35

Hi. Aknowledged the -3 fps + vsync on stuff, there's a problem with this game.
Vsync ON from NVCPL doesn't work. FPS won't be capped.
Vsync ON from the game works, should i use this instead? Is it double buffer or triple?
Or opt for like 138 fps vsync off?
Thanks.

Does this game have an FPS limiter? Then you can use that and set vsync OFF everywhere.

It does, but only has a few presets: 25, 30, 60, 80, 120, 144, 200, and 240 FPS. You can't manually select your FPS cap (at least I don't know how). As for NVCP vsync, I think it's working as it should: it engages while under your refresh rate limit, and disables whenever you reach it.

I have a 144 Hz FreeSync monitor, so I cap to 120 FPS using the in-game limiter + NVCP vsync. Game is in full screen mode. I think this is better than capping with RTSS to 141 FPS.

Yeah, that's what I would do as well. 120 cap in-game.

Do you actually need vsync if you use 120FPS in-game cap?

Just to add, you need to make sure G-SYNC is actually functioning in League in the first place; I've heard it's hit or miss in that game depending on the in-game window mode set.

Yeah, don't use fullscreen optimizations. I ended up using 144fps cap because i couldn't make nvcp vsync work and RTSS 160fps had more input lag than in-game 144

G-sync on
in-game vysnc is okay if nvcp vsync isn't available.
in-game limiter is usually better than rtss anyway.
you don't have to limit -3 from max refresh rate, i usually put it at vsync number (30-45-60-75-90-105-120), and from what i heard in my own thread, put the limit nearest the average of your min-max fps.
