I have ordered an iMac 17" G5 with X600pro. I hope this thing will get me straight to the top level of ppc/mac-gaming.
though it will get no native os9, but I think it will support "ati-displays" so that I can fix vsync, anisotrop-filtering, AA
and get BEST quality.

I do have the latest iMac 17" with C2D and X1600, it's fantastic (I downgraded from 10.7.5 to 10.6.8 in order to get rosetta),
but there is no way of controlling vsync because there is no support for "ati.-isplays".

We will see how good it is.

Thx, vsync off does not help against the tearing :(
I did a lot of Google-fu but I did not find a working solution yet.
Vsync is normally off in 10.7.5. Q1-3 do support vsync and they are smooth and do not produce any tearing.

Prey has the same issue, it's doom3 engine too.
I need a fix for this because I get about 20-60fps and therefore thes games are fully playable on my 17" iMac.

Did you notice them on quake4 too. Very interesting that the App-Store Version has become a fix for this, but I would not like to buy it another time. I own the original CD's and I am lucky to be able to install it on old PPC and X86 Mac's.

sorry for posting on this old one, but I can confirm that Doom3/Quake4 in deed do not seem to enable vsync at all,
even if it's chosen from the gfx-menu, that really bad, because I see lot's of tearing on my iMac 17" late 2006 with ATI x1600!

ATI Displays would perhaps help if it has got a universal-binary oder an intel version with support for the x1600 chip, but it's only ppc-code with no support for the later gfx-chips.

does anyone know another way to activate vsync on the games?

Thx!
