I'm using a timer to limit the framerate in my game. I just found out how to do it, and it works fine. There is a problem though. First of all I need to be able to play the game well in windowed AND fullscreen mode. The refreshrate for the fullscreen mode is 60hz, and the refreshrate in windowed mode is 85hz. I want to limit the framerate to 60hz. In fullscreen mode this works well (nothing really changes), but in windowed mode, the movement in my game isn't smooth. I figured this is because the refreshrate is 85hz, and the framerate 60hz. So 25 frames are shown on the screen double as long as the other 35 frames. When I change the framerate to 42.5 (85 / 2) it runs smoothly in windowed mode, but I get trouble in fullscreen mode. Does anyone know how to solve this ? (Except for changing the framerate to 5 :) Thanks in advance.
