Hi guys,

So I was recently looking into the LG G4 and its new specs etc. and noticing the "game mode" switch. What it actually does is downscaling the screen to 1080p to optimize the game performance.
Since I own a G3 I thought why shouldn't this be possible on the G3? So I went building with Tasker and created an "app" which would set the resolution to 1080p when you press "ON" and back to default when you press "OFF" (as an extra I've included a task that force closes swiftkey because when going back to default resolution Swiftkey would f** up the keyboard layout).



It actually works pretty well. Except for this; when you press OFF, the resolution (and DPI) turns back to default but for some reason the navigation bar is thinner than default. When I use NOMone Resolution Changer and press "Restore defaults" it somehow turns everything back to default perfectly. So what do I have to include in my Tasker script to get the navbar going back to default as it should?

Yeah, i would love to see this developed further. You think it's possible to make a program like this auto-switch to 1080p when you run a game and back to default when you exit it?

Will this work on my other 1440p devices? Note 4?
