Hey, Currently i find that platform movement seems jumpy or bumpy, is there a way to make it more smooth.
e.g do the movement differently to make it less choppy?
I'm not sure what you mean, it seems to have always worked OK for me. Can you show a .capx showing what's wrong?
Yeah there really isn't anything wrong. It is just i find that when i run the game the movement seems choppy. It may just be my browser, chrome.
It runs perfectly smooth here on Chrome. Why are you using the Physics behavior though? The Platform movement doesn't respond to physics objects, only objects with the Solid behavior. Maybe the physics behaviors are wasting some CPU. Try removing them.
Have you tried any other browsers? Is IE9 or Firefox 7 any better?
OK thanks I removed the physics behaviour. thought I needed it to make my char collide. It runs a little smoother maybe I am just being picky. Thanks for that Ashley. You learn something new everyday even when it is so simple. :)
And i tried it in Firefox it is the same. I think i just am being picky.
I'm on Firefox and even with the redundant physics, it's still smooth (and quite amusing).
Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.
Thanks it is the beginning to my entry for the space competition. It is no where near done.
Part of what makes it less smooth (for me at least) is the fullscreen mode. If you left it not fullscreen, but made the window a lot bigger(can't really see much with the standard window size <img src="smileys/smiley17.gif" border="0" align="middle" />), it could still be plenty playable without taking the performance hit.
Thanks i will try that. :)
i m going to quote SullyTheStrange on the full screen mode and the window mode ,
how can I make the window bigger ?
as full screen mode doesn t really look good to present
and the standard window size is too small
In the project properties you change the width and height of the window.
