Is there a utility somewhere to limit the maximum framerate of Direct3D? Currently whatever you set the refresh rate of your desktop can be used in Direct3D games too, but no slower than 60Hz.

The reason I ask is the PC version of Wipout 2097/XL which above about 30fps runs unplayably fast, and due to slack programming it runs at whatever your refresh rate is!

So, for example, does anyone know of an application where I can force the maximum refresh rate of Direct3D to, say, 30fps?

p.s. I tried various slow-down utilites but as I have hyper-threading they only appear to affect one thread and the game uses the other, flat out and unplayable as ever!
