So as in title I've been trying to get higher display refresh than it's default(60)
I've set in main config r_displayrefresh "75". And It seems to be going back to 60 refresh upon doing vid_restart on noquarter #1.

Tried setting +set r_displayrefresh 75 in et shortcut. I'm sure that my screen & graphic card supports this refresh rate.
 

My specs:

System: Windows 8
-Mb: Msi Z77A-GD55(MS-7751)
- I5 3570K quad core, 3,4 GHz
- AMD radeon HD 7950
- 8GB Ram 1333 MHz

Display:
- Samsung 27" , SyncMaster P2770HD

With 1920x1080 I have 60hz and on 1440x900 I have 75hz. Both are true color with 32bit range.

 

The cvar was working without problems upon running game and doing vid_restart while not connected to server.

Have r_customaspect 1; r_mode -1; r_fullscreen 1; r_swapinterval 0; r_finish 0

Custom resolution is set to 1440x900.

It didn't even work when I changed whole display to 1440x900(not just et). Restarting pc, clean et install, fresh configs, cvar_reset didn't change anything.

 

At the moment I'm using single screen and my graphic card drivers are up to date.

If you have any ideas please write them here :)

try \r_displayrefresh 75 then \vid_restart before connecting on server. Once on server, re-apply this process. From then on you shouldn't have to do this each time.

Huh, that *is* odd indeed. I am assuming you are using the Catalyst Control Centre for your resolution and refresh rate changes?

This might sound like a stupid question, but could you have v-sync enabled?

Tried that earlier. Sorry that I didn't mention it earlier. I made sure that after running game I had those cvar set to right value(resolution, display refresh) after that I connected to server but after vid_restart on sever some cvars were gone.(some cvars are not affected by autoexec even if they are in it)

Yes used both in-system settings to set resolution to 1440x900 and set refresh to 75hz and the one in catalyst. Also made sure that system is not changing display refresh on its own(similar case to auto brightness)
I always have it off(with cvars in et included: r_swapInterval 0 // If 1 then vsync is on, if 0 then it’s off. and r_finish 0)

 

 

Also tried doing some more stuff with it and condumped logs meanwhile.
 

This gfxinfo is after running the game.

PIXELFORMAT: color(32-bits) Z(24-bit) stencil(8-bits)
MODE: -1, 1440 x 900 fullscreen hz:75
GAMMA: software w/ 0 overbright bits
CPU: Intel Pentium III
rendering primitives: single glDrawElements
texturemode: GL_LINEAR_MIPMAP_NEAREST
picmip: 1
texture bits: 32
multitexture: enabled
compiled vertex arrays: disabled
texenv add: disabled
compressed textures: disabled
anisotropy: 0
NV distance fog: disabled

This gfx info is after exec of my config(all default generated after fresh install and changed values for custom resolution and refresh rate and r_mode)

(and its the exact same after connecting to server)

PIXELFORMAT: color(32-bits) Z(24-bit) stencil(8-bits)
MODE: -1, 1440 x 900 fullscreen hz:75
GAMMA: software w/ 0 overbright bits
CPU: Intel Pentium III
rendering primitives: single glDrawElements
texturemode: GL_LINEAR_MIPMAP_NEAREST
picmip: 3
texture bits: 16
multitexture: enabled
compiled vertex arrays: disabled
texenv add: disabled
compressed textures: disabled
anisotropy: 0
NV distance fog: disabled

And this one is after vid_restart while I'm conencted to server

PIXELFORMAT: color(32-bits) Z(24-bit) stencil(8-bits)
MODE: -1, 1440 x 900 fullscreen hz:60
GAMMA: software w/ 0 overbright bits
CPU: Intel Pentium III
rendering primitives: single glDrawElements
texturemode: GL_LINEAR_MIPMAP_NEAREST
picmip: 3
texture bits: 16
multitexture: enabled
compiled vertex arrays: disabled
texenv add: disabled
compressed textures: disabled
anisotropy: 0
NV distance fog: disabled

Edit:

Tried changing configs to read only and removing inside them 'unsafe' values ( so game would still read those cvars) etmain/etconfig.cfg; etmain/profiles/Shana/etconfig.cfg; noquarter/profiles/Shana/etconfig.cfg
Also not working while not exec'ing any custom/default config. (even on safe r_mode 4) com_recommended 0 and com_recommendedset 0 didn't help either.

take a look at this http://www.monitorte...ion-Utility-CRU and this http://www.monitortests.com/forum/Thread-AMD-ATI-Pixel-Clock-Patcher

 

It helps me unlock some refresh rates not permited by my monitor before!!

I have 75hz supported and it's going back to 60hz after vid_restart on server. I do not need to have custom display refresh since my screen supports it.

Yes, easily. No problems or crashes(double render initializations)

I see couple of things in CCC that have impact on framerate,

Control is done by ET.

Triple Buffering settings (off) and max framerate (off).

How is your CCC setup?

Whilst on a server, do

seta r_displayrefresh "0"; set r_displayrefresh "75" unsafe; vid_restart; writeconfig "111015_displayrefresh75.cfg"

All are set to max performace and use app settings not ccc.

 

 

And you are sure you are not messing around with ignorehardware setting?

r_ignorehwgamma 1 ,this one ignore is for brightness :) Tested it just in case. Don't have any other restrictions at the moment.

 

Whilst on a server, do

seta r_displayrefresh "0"; set r_displayrefresh "75" unsafe; vid_restart; writeconfig "111015_displayrefresh75.cfg"

/seta r_displayrefresh "0"; set r_displayrefresh "75" unsafe; vid_restart; writeconfig
"111015_displayrefresh75.cfg"
r_displayrefresh will be changed upon restarting.

Yes. Now I see. That quote gave me idea. Since I was trying to render 1440x900 75hz 32bits and in et I had 16 or 24 cause of default settings.

Thanks all for help. Really appreciate that :)

Not sure if it makes a difference, but 1440x900 is a 16:10 ratio; r_customaspect 1 is for 16:9, r_customaspect 2 is for 16:10
