I’ve noticed a very annoying and wierd error:

When using on a battery (unplugged from power source) - any horizontal movement of kinematicbody2D, like

velocity.x+= (a number)

there’s a very bad-looking jitter and stuttering

Problem occurs on Lenovo IdeaGaming laptop AMD Ryzen 5 5600H with Radeon Graphics 3.30 GHz

The moment I plug the laptop to power source - it gets better.

(although - it’s not ideal and could be better…)

For reference, this was cross-posted on GitHub: jitter and stuttering when moving kinematic body 2d · Issue #63154 · godotengine/godot · GitHub

Power Saving mode?

Maybe it’s throttling the CPU or the GPU.

Try deactivate it or a balanced or game mode to test it.
