    Not so much a post of my WIP (even though it is one) but more of a ask for help regarding a flicker issue. The backgrounds occasionally flash black, and I cannot figure out why. It seems to only happen in the NW.js preview but not in the HTML web version?

    I am really stumped why this flicker happens. I have the latest video driver from nVidia, etc.


    Is it related to the 1000px wide/tall tiling backgrounds overlapping with transparency using Sine behavior (sawtooth)? I tried to make scrolling backgrounds based on Jerementor idea from his Udemy course (that checkerboard diagonal scrolling effect) but maybe I screwed it up. I've got a 256x256 tiling background which I offset -128, -128 and set the amplitude to 128.

  • I'm not sure I noticed any flickering problem with this game? What does the flickering look like for you? Do you know the steps for how I can replicate your issue?

    (I have a flickering problem with nwjs 0.15, occasionally the screen will flicker black, so I'm wondering if it's a related problem to yours.)

  • Hi yep that's what happens. It flickers black randomly and occasionally and I cannot for the life of me figure it out. It only happens with NWJS, the web is fine.

  • That's interesting, your game didn't trigger it for me! It only happens sometimes with NWJS for my game though, and not on other's computers. So it's a bit weird

  • I guess you have the same problem as I had with NWjs flickering. See my post here
