Steps To Fix The Cycle Frontier Screen Flickering or Tearing Issue on PC
If you are experiencing screen flickering or tearing while playing multiplayer game modes, specific sessions, or even specific checkpoints, ensure your internet connection is working properly. In-game graphics settings can also cause these issues. Screen shimmering has also been reported during cut scenes.
So, until the issue is resolved, try each method one at a time. Now, without further ado, let’s get started.
Step 1: Enable V-Sync in Nvidia Control Panel
To avoid graphical glitches in The Cycle Frontier game, turn on the Vertical Sync feature in your Nvidia Control Panel app.
[Note: you can only use this method if you have an Nvidia graphics card.]
From the Start menu, select Nvidia Control Panel. If it isn’t installed, go to the Microsoft Store and download it.
Go to 3D Settings and select Manage 3D settings in the Nvidia Control Panel interface.
