Ignore Deactivation limits games to refresh rate

Whenever I enable ignore deactivation my games are limited to my refresh rate. After disabling ignore deactivation and re-tabbing back into a game the fps goes back above my refresh rate. Is there a way to use ignore deactivation while getting the most performance out of games? Thanks -Cal

Hi Cal,

Could you list a few examples of games this is happening in? Also, do you have a refresh limit within the games settings?

Thanks!

I tested it and it happens in every game. I have refresh rate and fps limit uncapped on all of my games. The only way I can get my fps back above the refresh rate is if I disable ignore deactivation and then alt-tab out of the game then alt-tab back in.

Heroes of the storm, Quake Champions are a few that it happens for.

Hi Cal,

Strange, I can't seem to reproduce the issue on my end. There isn't much we can do here, as that function just prevents the window from receiving a "Focus Lost" message, so it shouldn't be having any effect on frame limiting.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help!

Thats OK, I will still be purchasing displayfusion pro once my trial runs out. Overall it is a better program than the Actual Tools equivalent. Thanks for the help.

Glad to hear! If we run into any similar issues in the future and are able to reproduce it on our end, we'll be sure to let you know.
