  • for a 2d engine that are plenty of resources to use... also it seems to be pretty strong, more than most casual players will have... keep that in mind

    thanks man

  • Olso(from everything I've learned so far, correct me if I am wrong guys) the most important thing isn't how powerful your hardware is, but how you design your game.

    If you design your game poorly(too many effects, too big resolutions on your sprites, poor code/too many every tick events, etc.) then theoretically you can bring any pc to a crawl, no matter how powerful it is, even with a 2D engine...

  • thats perfectly right VIKINGS especially as HTML is still pretty recource hungry danul777 i suggest you read https://www.scirra.com/manual/134/performance-tips

    thanks .

    i just want to ask one question:

    1 - for good parformence whats better? create a few heavy layouts ( with more sprites , collitions , effects ...) or many not heavy layouts?

  • in generall more layouts should have better performance... the less objects are in use the better the performance is. also group your conditions and actions and disable the group if you dont need it.

    Might wanna look into updating or cleaning your computer if your getting the idea these specs are not enough.
