Game development stories & opinions
Hi so I started playing about with Construct 2, I made this scene dl.dropbox.com/u/3317708/A%20T%20T%20R%20A%20C%20T/index.html
And it ran super smooth, fast and flawlessly in Chrome.
For some reason now it chuggs at really low performance I have no idea what's causing it.
Any ideas? Did google update chrome recently with something sh*t?
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
Ran poorly for me, too. Did the project change between when it was smooth versus slow? Also, I'm sure someone will ask for a .capx to verify there isn't something sinister running behind the scenes.
It looks like you're using Physics - that's the most likely cause of slowdown. From the Physics Basics tutorial:
hysics simulations are very CPU intensive. It can take a lot of processing to work out the proper motion. To make sure your game runs fast, it's recommended that you don't use too many objects at once.
Yeah I would agree with this if it wasn't running perfectly fast and smooth before.
There were no changes in this version, it ran smoothly on multiple different systems running Chrome but seemed to almost overnight switch to being very sliggish.
CrudeMik what is the version of construct?Because ive noticed slowdowns in my physics game when i started using version r68, in r67 it rans very smoothly.I'll try r69 and see what happens.
If it changed overnight without us doing anything, then I guess it's not something in Construct 2... performance is a tricky issue, there may be something else on your computer slowing it down perhaps... hard to say what.
I would put a debug test showing the objectcount variable. Often slowdown can be caused by accidentally spawning a stream of objects.
It's fine with the latest version of Construct.
