five golem elements Sprites Sheet.Best for enemy or villain game characters.
  • Before my game was running at full speed in the editor but for some reason it lags when I'm trying to do my work inside construct 2. What could be causing this. Any other game or prototype i worked on has ever done this. I have to use the schools computers because my computer is too slow now. It's so strange.

    I am only using 1 event sheet for about 15 layouts. I guess that can cause lag.

  • Please see how to report bugs. Can you share the affected .capx and your full system spec?

    Also I'm not clear on exactly what the problem is: is it the editor that runs slowly, or the game? Is it only the game that runs slowly while you're also working in the editor?

  • the editor is running slowly.

  • Try Construct 3

    Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.

  • Does it run faster if the game is not running at the same time?

    Can you also provide your full system spec?

  • The editor itself runs like buttttt. But only with this specific game. All my other prototypes run like a charm.

  • is sharing 1 event sheet a bad thing?

  • From performance tips in the manual as a common cause of poor performance:

    b]Using Sprites instead of Tiled Backgrounds

    Creating too many objects can cause slowdowns, and a common mistake is to use grids of Sprite objects instead of Tiled Background objects. For example, a 20x20 grid of sprites has 400 objects, which is a significant impact on the object count. A single tiled background can replace the grid of sprites and it only counts as a single object. Tiled backgrounds are specially optimised for repeating their texture so in this case it is literally 400 times more efficient than the grid of sprites. Always use Tiled Backgrounds instead of repeating Sprites wherever possible.

    What you've done is *extremely* inefficient. Always, always always used tiled backgrounds when you have tiled images!! Closing as not a bug.
