The Goal:


But it would not be as performant to have this in process

How would you emit that signal for only when a Display Setting is changed on the Users Computer?

Why do you want to do this? The point of the physics ticking is that it’s at a constant pace, regardless of rendering. Otherwise your physics would work inconsistently.

It regards only of movement, nothing to do with Objects or Built-In Gravity

I think what you’d rather want is physics interpolation:

Physics should be calculated at a fixed rate to stay consistent. In order to get smooth movements at higher display refresh rates, interpolation can be a solution.

An add-on was already created for this purpose: GitHub - anatolbogun/godot-smoother-node: A Godot node type that smoothes scene nodes' movements by interpolating between _physics_process steps.

Thanks but this does not help, I seek to simply Change Settings according to the signal of a User’s Device settings being Changed
