Please join us at our official forum: https://forums.highfidelity.com/c/development High Fidelity is an open source virtual world platform. We are building the software with a mix of full-time developers, part time developers who are paid on worklist.net, and open source collaborators. As use of the virtual world grows, Worklist will also host paid projects run by other teams. https://worklist.net
Ah, gotcha. Yeah, this is a QTimer setting. This is from the documentation, which answers your question:
On UNIX (including Linux, macOS, and iOS), Qt will keep millisecond accuracy for Qt::PreciseTimer. For Qt::CoarseTimer, the interval will be adjusted up to 5% to align the timer with other timers that are expected to fire at or around the same time. The objective is to make most timers wake up at the same time, thereby reducing CPU wakeups and power consumption.
On Windows, Qt will use Windows's Multimedia timer facility (if available) for Qt::PreciseTimer and normal Windows timers for Qt::CoarseTimer and Qt::VeryCoarseTimer.
On all platforms, the interval for Qt::VeryCoarseTimer is rounded to the nearest full second (e.g. an interval of 23500ms will be rounded to 24000ms, and 20300ms to 20000ms).
