is it possible to add any option to create profil and framerate limiter ?

1) With some games, I must change parameters in nglide configurator at each time I change game.

For example, in redline racer at 144hz there are physics problem and I must select 60hz. In NFS5, the game works very well at 144hz.

If it is possible to add profile loading automatically when the game is launched, it would be very usefull.

2) Is is possible to add framerate limiter because sone games are fps sensitive and no fps caps. With my display at 144hz even with vsync on, there can be some problems.

thanks.

You can create separate .bat files for problematic games like RLR.

Leave nGlide config at 144Hz, but create rlr_3dfx_60.bat in a game directory with:
set NGLIDE_REFRESH=2
start rlr_3dfx.exe


From now on launch the game with it.

More info about nGlide environment variables here.

I cannot recall any Glide API titles that would work too fast at 60Hz.

Redline racer for example.
At 144hz, game don't work too fast but moto physics is bugged.
i would like to use advantages of 144hz and limit framerate to 60fps to avoid bug of moto physics.

RLR doesn't count. It works okay at 60Hz.

You don't want that. The framerate won't match the refresh rate resulting with higher latency. A much better solution is what I proposed earlier, simply switch to 60Hz via nGlide variables or configurator for this particular title.

Hm, in my experience it's always been the other way around - using vsync results in very noticeable input delay, while limiting framerate does not. Old Zeckensack's glide wrapper had fps limit option, and it didn't introduced any lag.
When i play unreal engine games with nglide, i have to limit the fps somehow, or else they run too fast, but if i force vsync using nglide configuration, i get pretty bad input delay. However, if i turn vsync on in-game, it limits fps to whatever RefreshRate option is set at, without actually forcing vsync, and this way the games work perfectly well without any delay.

I have gsync monitor then no problem with higher latency.
The advantage of 144hz mode with 144hz monitor and 60 fps framerate is to decrease reponse time and less remanence and blur and no bug with physics for example in redline racer. The best of two worlds. At 60hz, I don't have the advantage of my 144hz monitor.
