I've learned a few things since the first post.
Jamie.monro: *Sigh* so we have a choice between stuttery/tearing performance (In fullscreen windowed mode) or terrible colours in fullscreen mode.
BTCentral: Eh? I play in fullscreen windows with vsync off and there's no screen tearing at all, definitely no stutter either - I've found in general in most games now it's acually best to play in fullscreen windowed mode when you have the option.
I was incorrect about vsync in fullscreen windowed mode, as learned above (it does actually work). In fact there really is no problem with fullscreen windowed mode; although it does have a very tiny performance hit (negligible maybe 1 frame in 60).
I don't know why it helped other people in another thread switching to fullscreen mode, but perhaps there was some problem in the early versions with the game.
Interestingly though Divinity original sin fake fullscreen can have the framerate uncapped, so perhaps when you don't framecap it just discards the frames if they're not ready?
