Does the variable FPS trick still work on ROG Phone 5? This game is locked at 30FPS and has been that way for over 3 years now. 60FPS was a fable until a trick was found with the ROG Phone 2. It is a trick where you increase the screen refresh rate to double the previous setting which tricks the game into running at 60FPS from 30FPS.

Sadly I can't reproduce this on my ROG Phone 5. Apparently the second Android 10 update for ROG 2 on 17/04/2020 broke (fixed?) this trick. I do not understand why ASUS fixed this as there was no harm or game ban...unless Google fixed it themselves or ASUS had other battery/performance issues linked to this so they had to patch this up.

One of the main reasons I went with this phone is that I was looking forward to playing FGO at 60FPS on the go. I know high FPS is not as important in turn-based games, but I still love the fluid animation that 60FPS offers over 30FPS. I hope there is an alternative trick that exist or a special option specific to this game that can help reproduce this trick.
