NVIDIA Control Panel Conflicts

Once you’ve done the above, delete everything above this line.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Open NVIDIA Control Panel and go to “Manage 3D settings”
    (two separate bugs)

2a. Change Multi-Frame Sampled AA (MFAA) to on, then restart Obsidian.
2b. Change Background Application Max Frame Rate to 20 fps, then restart Obsidian.

Did you follow the troubleshooting guide? [Y/N]


Expected result

a. I would have expected MFAA to not really affect Obsidian much.
b. Background Application Max Frame Rate should have lowered the frame rate of Obsidian when it wasn’t focused.

Actual result

a. MFAA caused after images of the Obsidian widgets to appear on the application.
b. The frame rate was dropped even while having Obsidian focused.
