    Unhappy 60fps cap

    so, i switched from windows to Linux and the game i grind the most (geometry dash) is supported under steam play proton stuff, and for some reason its capped at 60fps even tho I have a 165hz monitor that is set to 165hz in the settings, i have tried switching display drivers (i tried 470, 460 for my 1650) and i have tried the in game sync and toggled it on and off, nothing, its stuck at 60fps and this game is dependant on a higher refresh rate as it highly affects the physics and stuff making the game 1000 times easier and I bought my monitor for that purpose. Now i cant even use my monitor for what I bought it for, i feel like this is a steam play issue and not an ubuntu issue but i thought i would try here anyway (note my desktop runs and shows 165hz)

    check for instructions on proton switches. maybe one of the switches is capping it at 60fps.

    proton has many commands you can add at launch of the game. i have 75hz monitor and i think my kid has a faster refresh rate, but i never saw any FPS caps in games unless i specifically set them.

    if you have nvidia you can also check nvidia settings. as i recall they juts recently started to apply correctly to proton games (custom program settings or what its called).
    Read the easy to understand, lots of pics Ubuntu manual.
    Do i need antivirus/firewall in linux?
