Set refresh rate by application profile?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So I have an Asus 144 Hz display and I normally run it at 144 Hz on the desktop day-to-day. And so far this has not been a problem. But, I wanted to have another play through of Skyrim since I just got all the DLC for it now. So when I started a new game and the character is in the wagon on the way to Helgen, the physics just starts spazzing out! While it's somewhat amusing, it makes it a bit difficult to play. tongue.gif

I found out that Skyrim's physics will glitch if you're above 60 FPS. So, I set my desktop refresh rate to 60 Hz and now everything is working great. thumb.gif

So my trouble is that I want to keep my desktop running at 144 Hz since most games I play are fine with the higher refresh rate. I'd hate to always be going back and forth to the NV control panel to keep adjusting the refresh rate.

Is there a way that the refresh rate can be set by an application profile or something similar? Any suggestions are much appreciated! smile.gif

So I've come across this program called "Display Changer"

Basically, you can create a short cut with some switches specifying resolution, refresh rate, etc... Optionally, you can add a specific program to the shortcut and it will switch back to the original resolution when said program closes. I'm gonna explore this a bit more, but I think this will work for me. thumb.gif

In the meantime, I figured I post this in case anyone else is looking for a solution. smile.gif
