Good to know :) - I never saw any issue on my Mac though, I was blissfully unaware there even was a vsync bug in AGK :P

I think it was a monitor issue, rather than a machine issue.

And to be fair, blasting away at comets it was barely noticeable, just now and again I noticed a slight flicker on your ship for a nano second lol.  But when a game runs so smoothly I find it jarring if something upsets the flow.

I think that problem was Windows only.

That's a thought, it would be good to try it on my other system - a Raspberry Pi  :D

And Android Tablet  ;D
