Right now i am setting all collisions properties to False for every sprite that is used as a "detail" for the levels
I also went and decided to make 1 big shared event sheet where all the player controls are, such as movement and pausing, so the code wouldn't have to be repeated in every level's sheet
After doing some research about further possible optimizations here are my following "Unanswered" questions:
= I read this
"To ensure previews are fast, duplicate images are not removed when previewing. However when exporting, Construct 2 looks for and removes duplicate images. This helps reduce the download size and memory use, since there's no point having identical images downloaded twice or loaded in to memory twice." from another thread here.
I often used the same image (resource) but opened with in different sprite(because i wanted one block to do nothing and another to do something while they were both identical on the outside)
Can i be assured that all the repeating objects i have won't be included in the final file size? (as in, all those sprites on the right that i imported but deleted or that i imported more than once because "noob" mistakes)
=i read this: (regarding minifing script)
But most importantly
Does this mean that all those Copied variables i have
(for example: at the start i copied all my movement code, including variables, and now i have (for example) variable: canyoudoublejump2 on level2 canyoudoublejump3 on level 3 and so on)
and that are, most probably, not used will be removed from the code thus i can just ignore them in the project and not "hunt" the unused variables since, upon exporting, they won't be an issue?
=i read this:
"If you have many background and graphics sprites, you can add all the images in one sprite and make the animation speed to 0 , then change the frames as you like.
This better than using 50 sprites as background and graphics."
Does this have a big impact on the framerate/loading overall performance or is it something done because it is more "convenient" (and i could see why it would be!)
And a side question:
I have a text object on all of my levels that indicates the distance of the player from the end of the level, to do this im using the distance between 2 points code i found here, my question is: Since im using the "calculate distance and put in text" code "on player moving" , does this affect the performance since every time the player moves the CPU has to calculate X1-x1,y1-y2 or is it insignificant in terms of performance drop?
