set your desktop to the same resoultion as the game,16-bit.choose the frequency (desktop settings,advanced,adapter),apply.go back to your native resolution.the new frequency for the game resolution will be stored.launch the game.

hm.maybe the game is overriding your setting? you can try this for quake3:
Another useful command is r_display_refresh which allows the monitor refresh rate to be set. This command also requires a vid_restart when entered via the console.

that means open the q3 console,and type:

\set r_display_refresh 85

hit enter,and type

\vid_restart

hit enter.see if that helps.

Are you sure that your monitor allows the 85 hz in the resolution you chose ?

the refresh settings are not stored in glide dlls,they are stores in the registry.the problem you are experiencing is VERY weird,I'm using mesafx on 4 pcs with different voodoo cards and never had something like that.try forcing the refresh via bat file:

create a txt file in your quake3 folder (run.txt for example),and put in following:

set FX_GLIDE_REFRESH=85
quake3.exe

exit and save changes.rename the file to run.bat,and launch the bad.see what happens..
