Bugs

90Hz is laggy a bit. I recommend use 30-120Hz or static 120Hz.
Blur is laggy a bit. I recommend not use blur (disabled by default btw).
It is very rare that the sound stops working (a reboot fixes the problem). I am currently looking for a solution to this and will release a fix as soon as I find.
