On sort of the same token, if you have very low frame rate, beams will end up doing less damage.

Please be aware that FSO does not handle high framerates particularly well. The turn rate of missiles is higher at lower framerates so you might encounter gameplay issues if you disable framerate capping.

There's also the -no_fps_capping flag

I also have 144hz screens, and with vsync enabled the fps tends to cap at either 60 or 72fps, reaching 120 only with barely anything on the screen. (But that's what I get for running a system with a cpu from 2011)
Disabling shadows, godrays and framebuffer thrusters tend to be easy ways to gain a lot of extra fps.

Turn vsync off. If it is off, your system just isn't capable of a higher FPS. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

In my experience new FSO builds perform like ****. I don't know if it's actually the builds or scripts or what.

So far having a blast playing through this, however I'm experiencing moderate to severe FPS drops when there is a lot of action going on, when there is lots of capships and beam fire. I'm playing the non knossos version with the May nightly build on the wxlauncher. I've got no lighting presets on and nothing checked in the graphics setting of the advanced setting tab. I've also disabled Vsync. My Specs are:

I5 4570
Gigabyte GTX 1060 6GB VRAM
16 Gb of RAM

Any way to possibly alleviate my FPS issues?

How do I change the max frame rate. I got a new 144 hz monitor but the game seems to only run at 60-85 hz. I know the engine can do 120. How do I set it to use 120?

Regarding the Corinthos: The missions in R1 where you do have access to it are essentially tuned to show off the Corinthos. The EA warship in M11 for example has its beams nerfed to be destroyable by 2 Corinthos, where usually it would take 3 Corinthos shots or 2 Stil3 shots. Also, the Shivan ships you fight in M14 are all FS2-era, and the Corinthos is the result of 20-ish years of iterating on the Treb so I think it makes sense to have it superior to the Treb at long-range anti-strikecraft, even though it's actually severely nerfed compared to the original Treb in terms of anti-subsystem work.

Is there a complete autonomous option? It seems like it still expects the user to pick the words and end the sentences.
