games changing monitor refresh rate to 50htz

Question asked by kahless_uk on Aug 18, 2018

Some games are forcing my monitor to change it's refresh rate from 60htz to 50htz, which wouldn't be a huge issue except most of these games don't behave correctly when vsynced at 50fps instead of 60. This even affects windowed and borderless windowed modes

 

The main culprits are;

 

Crysis trilogy (can be "fixed" with a custom resolution of 1920x1078@60htz although Crysis 3 still locks at 50fps regardless)

Crash Bandicoot NSane Trilogy

Prince of Persia Forgotten Sands.
