I prefer 60fps, over resolution. I have certain games where my monitor will play at 60fps and others where it will drop and give me significant lag on anything i do (skyrim is an example, where when I move my mouse the cursor is about .25 seconds behind). When i set the game to load at 1080p, the actual resolution of the monitor is 4k so it still responds slowly. Any suggestions for automatically changing the resolution when you launch a specific game?

Are you using the launcher?

Try turning the monitor off. Then pee on it. Boot it back up and see if it worked.

I used the launcher to set it up, then run with the Script Extender. Im looking for a solution that covers more than just this game though. A program that switches resolutions or something like that on the fly, preferably when a specific program is launched

Why have a 1440p monitor if you run everything in 1080p?

Because I dont run EVERYTHING in 1080. I use the 4k res for some things such as LoL. Right now I am just going to the monitor properties and switching it everytime I play a game that lags, but looking for anothjer option instead of having to do that all the time. Also planning on updating the card eventually, but got a good deal on the monitor so decided to take it.

So a quick little update, I found this program http://funk.eu/hrc/ that sets it to a hotkey, if anyone knows of a solution thats automatic on program start/end thatd be awesome though.

You do realize that modern hardware cannot run demanding games in 4K at 60fps at this time. And even the when the 8 series of cards comes out it still wont be there yet.

If you launch a game once and pick a resolution when you come back it will always run in that resolution. It's not like things reset themselves when you quit anyway

Sounds like vsync lag.
