Use REFramework.[6][7]

Stuttering when non-controller devices are removed or inserted

Use DeviceStutterFix.[6]
Requires REFramework.

Game is more difficult at higher frame rates

Cap FPS using in-game settings to 30 or 60.[8][citation needed]
This is likely due to RE Engine, which is known to cause issues with higher then intended frame rates.
