Laser upgrade on lightburn

I upgraded to a 5.5 laser from my 2.5, my question how do I get it to work at its full capacity on lightburn, do I need to change any settings? Please advise.

Should be no changes required at all - the controller just specifies a percentage of the maximum power to use, so if you run with the same settings you used in the past, you should be getting double the power output.

Do I gm have to change the $32 code on the software or leave it as it was which was 255

$32 should never be 255 - it should be 0 or 1 (spindle mode or laser mode)
$30 might be 255, or 1000, and the number is mostly irrelevant as long as it’s 255 or higher.
