Is there a way to limit FPS from the settings.conf file? Having 3000+ FPS means the game is sped up real bad, making it unplayable. I don't know if the issue is particularly in the game code itself or if 144hz monitor is doing this.

Wow - I thought I locked it at 60fps. What operating system are you running?

Win 10 Home 64bit

Lordy, that is bizzare. My partner has a Win 10 Pro 64 bit machine, and I have had no problems with the frame rate. I can't think why the monitor would do it.  Hmm there is sometimes a video driver setting that says "Let the application control the frame rate" which you can turn off, have you disabled that by any chance?  Can you take a video of this behaviour with your mobile phone and then upload to YouTube as unlisted and send me the URL so I can see this in action? Also what's your video card and CPU?

Righto, the problem might be with the refresh rate of the monitor itself. I tested out with setting down the monitor Hz values, messing around with Nvidia Control Panel settings and here's what I found out:
- G-sync on, V-sync off, Letting the application control the frame rate = 2000-3000+ FPS
- G-sync off, V-sync off, Letting the application control the frame rate = 2000-3000+ FPS
- G-sync off, V-sync on, Letting the application control the frame rate = ~144FPS
- G-sync off, V-sync on, Letting the application control the frame rate, changed monitor Hz down to 60 = ~60FPS

Video card = GTX 1070Ti, CPU = i7-6700k
I'll DM the video to you.

Crap - sorry I missed this.  I can't see a DM feature for Itch.io, can you send it to domarius@gmail.com?  I was just reading up on this, and it seems it might behave better in Godot 3.0, but I made this in Godot 2.1 https://github.com/godotengine/godot/issues/9561 If you have the time, it would be interesting to see if your high refresh rate monitor has trouble with other Godot games, like this one https://globalgamejam.org/2018/games/hyperspace-shoujo or this one https://levrault.itch.io/godot-2d-action-adventure-platformer-demo (that last one has some weird controls - left & right to move, space to jump, and F to attack...)
