Because the game has forced vertical sync in windowed mode (where the GPU does not have exclusive privileges over the display of the window) due to the DXGI calls in a comment within the Reddit post I linked, performance is locked. In order to get around this currently, you need to either use a driver old enough to not support this DXGI call, or a version of windows that doesn't support it. It would be greatly appreciative if a vertical sync toggle could be added to the game which could disable this FPS lock, which would benefit players of all different hardware configurations and software versions. Please urge the developers at Pearl Abyss to add a toggle for vertical sync in the Display Options. _______________ Edits This has been posted to NAEU Feedback library here (https://community.blackdesertonline...a-feedback-library.293790/page-8#post-2280408) and Reddit here (https://www.reddit.com/r/blackdeser...4j/i_need_your_help_to_urge_the_devs_to_make/).
