Hello -

 

I have an application that sometimes crashes on PCs running Radeon video cards when Triple Buffering is enabled. 

 

It's a control application for a gaming device.  The heads up display is rendered in OpenGL.  You can find the application here:

http://media.naturalpoint.com/software/TrackIR_5.1.3.Final.exe

 

Would it be possible to either:

 

a:  Detect when triple buffering is enabled and pop up a warning before launching the OGL window

b:  Force disabling of Triple Buffering when my application is running?

 

 

Thanks!

You could make a preset for your 3D applications....one with it enabled and one with it disabled. Then right click on the tray icon and select which you want. Or, make a application profile for that particular game with it enabled or disabled.
