I'm playing around with deliberately trying to limit the FPS of my game. I've modified love.run to do this, using an accumulator and updating every 1/30th of a second. I believe this should only draw to the screen once every 1/30th of a second, approximately.
Code: Select all
if love.timer then dt = love.timer.step() end
accumulator = accumulator + dt
if accumulator >= tick_rate then
accumulator = 0
if love.update then love.update() end
if love.graphics and love.graphics.isActive() then
if love.draw then love.draw() end
if love.timer then love.timer.sleep(0.001) end
For some reason, love.timer.getFPS() reports very high FPS (400+) even with vsync on. Why is this?

Hi and welcome to the forums!
Löve uses its internal timer... internally, to calculate the value you get back with getFPS and with related functions as well; basically, it's all dependent on the love.timer.step() call, which -is- outside your fixed time step function.
getFPS does not do any magic with detecting how fast löve renders frames to the gpu, basically.
You could redefine the function, to return 1 / tick_rate, but... that's kinda pointless if implemented exactly like that.
