So, I have a slight issue with this game. It tears quite badly. I tried to prevent it by turning on the vsync, but that will just cause stutter making the game unplayable by that way. So, i tested my frames while vsync was on: 60, 60, 60, 58, 49, 52 ,60, 58 and so on, nothing too unexpected since there was stutter afterall. After that i tried the same thing without vsync enabled, and for the surprising fact i got the exact same amount. The verdict: game engine is limited to 60 fps.

So, why can any tearing happen if this limitation exists? If fps can never exceed the screen refresh rate it should never happen.
