View Full Version : Changing display refresh rates on nvidia

June 21st, 2006, 06:58 AM

I would like to configure Girder to somehow be able to toggle the display refresh rate between 50 Hz and 60 Hz. The display resolution and all other attributes will remain the same. I have a FX5200 Nvidia card.

Right now I do this manually by opening the display properties and select either 50 or 60 from the drop down menu for refresh rates in the nVidia display window.

Any ideas how I would go about doing this? I guess a hotkey would be the easy route and I have had a poke around in the nView hotkey configuration but didn't see anything obvious...

Thanks for any help!

for Girder 4 it's really simple

add a scripting action

monitor.SetDisplayMode(1, 1024, 768, 32, 85)
this sets monitor 1 to a resolution of 1024x768 with 32 bits per pixel and a 85hz refreshrate

don't remember if Girder 3.3 had an equivalent though ;)

Just tried this in Girder 3 as a script and it complains about syntax. Anyone know if there is a similar command in Girder 3?

these lua extensions are only part of G4.
