Limiting the framerate

My PC gets awfully hot when using Space Engine. I believe a big part of this is because the framerate seems to always be as high as possible. I've searched the forum and have not found this question mentioned- if this is repetitive then forgive me...

Can I limit Space Engine's framerate? I'm not talking about video recording, but about real-time rendering, where the untamed framerate jumps from tens to hundreds of frames per second. Is there a config file somewhere where I can set a maximum framerate of my choice? I would probably go for 60 FPS (my refresh rate).

Open main.cfg and enable VSync:

VSync true // use vertical syncronization

Well, it worked! (of course it would, I guess) Thanks for the help. Hopefully my computer won't turn into an oven as often (or a star). smile

P.S. Sorry about the silly typo in the thread title.
