Hello I recently downloaded DXtweaker. It is a program that lets you adjust pretty much every aspect of your video card drivers, but the most important function isthat you can enable triple buffering with vsync (which I love) in D3D games!

The only problem is that it seems to not work with Thief-DS. I was wondering if anyone out there could check it out or has checked this out and got it tow work..

So far it works for Halo, and FarCry, but I cant get Thief 3 to startup when DXtweaker is running.

You have to install .NET 1.1, and the Juni DirectX patch in order to run DXtweaker.

Very simply. DON'T use it for TDS.

I guess if it doesn't work for Thief, you can't use it with Thief. Try using double-buffering before you give up though.

If you look in Thief 3's DEFAULT.INI file, you'll notice that Thief 3 has automatically enabled Triple Buffering in these settings.
I turned it off today manually for performance boost. ;)

Thanks man!! I didnt notice that before. You got a performance boost with triple buffering disabled... I thought triple buffering is supposed to INCREASE performance???

Well I tried setting it the value to False, but I dont notice a difference either way. Seems like it didnt do anything for me. I also tried enabling some other stuff under this same section for 32bit textures, etc. but again I did not see any difference in game..
