Only in the game launcher, not in the editor. First disable r_vsync = 0 then cap the fps with sys_maxfps = x.

Could be resources are reallocated since focus on window is lost? Try to query search for focus or windows in the Console Variable. Maybe its just a simple setting.

I dont have the editor in front of me.

CRYTEK! can you explain why closing this issue on github???
The problem still exist. even with your variable sys_maxFPS = -1
Is there any guy on planet earth who have tested this?

it seems you crytek guys have a huge cataloge and pick some answers and post this without any tests about it.
Shame on you and the forum and Github. WTF!
