Hi, as the tittle said i can play all games fine in my Full Hd monitor but one. I play Far Cry New Dawn, FIFA, PES, Battlefield V at 60Hz just fine but the little one, Pinball Arcade plays ok at 60Hz but when you press Esc to go to the ingame options menu it takes too long, but if i set to 59Hz (don't know why) it instantly go to the options menu. Is there any way to set just one game at 59Hz and leave the others at 60Hz? If i set all at 59Hz i have some sound issues with FarCry New Dawn. Thanks!

With RTSS you can lock the fps per game or global.

It didn't work. I think it has something to be with the monitor and not the FPS. In display settings i can set 60Hz, 59, 50, 30, etc., in Nvidia Control Panel, the same. Can i only set 59Hz to Pinball Arcade? Thanks again!

Nvidia profile inspector has the option to set whichever refresh rate you want per game, that should do it.

Farsight Pinball Arcade is not on the list. I downloaded "Borderless Gaming", i set Pinball Arcade on windowed mode without borders and it works like a charm. All other games are running at 60Hz. Thanks!!!

You can always make a new profile for it and apply your settings.

Custom resolution in NVCP

1. Disable any DSR in the 3D settings (global) tab, if you have it active

125424


2. Go to change resolution tab
3. Set a custom resolution (there is a warning dialog box in between, just click accept)

125426


4. Now, go into the game and this newly created resolution should appear in graphics settings. That is how you keep it tied to specific games only. For global setting you can select what you had originally in NVCP.
