Final Fantasy was recently released by Square Enix on our favorite platform, Steam. You might know Square Enix for releasing games like Marvel’s Avengers or the Hitman Series. And now they brought an old game as a remastered and renovated 2D interpretation of the primary game in the incredibly famous Final Fantasy franchise, where you can partake in the story told through enchanting retro designs. However, you won’t be able to enjoy it with any of the Final Fantasy Screen Tearing issues that you might be getting.
Many users on Steam are complaining about these screen tearing issues and how it ruins a completely beautiful 2D game. But any gamer should know that this kind of problem is easily fixed by turning V-sync on, right? Except, that you can’t in this game, and that’s why you are probably here.
Guide to fixing Final Fantasy Screen Tearing issues
There is actually no option in the in-game settings to turn on V-sync which is odd. However, you can still do it through your graphic card settings which won’t take up much of your time. Please take note that this option is only for Nvidia Graphic Card users.
Open the NVIDIA Control Panel. You can do this by right-clicking on your desktop.
Click the small + icon next to 3D Settings.
Click on Manage 3D settings.
Go to the Program Settings tab.
Find and choose Final Fantasy from the list under Select a program to customize.
If Final Fantasy isn’t in the list of programs you can add it to the list manually. An easy way of finding it’s location is by right clicking the game in steam, selecting Properties > Local Files > Browse, then copy the address from here into the Nvidia control panel.
Find the Vertical Sync option in the Nvidia Control Panel and change the value to either Adaptive, or On to enable hardware level Vsync for the game.
You should now not be experiencing any Final Fantasy screen tearing issues anymore. You can relax and play the game with its beautiful 2D pixel art and the nostalgia that it gives you.
