A loading screen is something I would think of last with a project of this size.. too many projects consist of a fancy loading screen.. some concept art and no actual substance.. I like to get the meat and potatoes done first and add the dessert after ;) But thanks for the link, I'll use it when the project is done earning a loading screen lol
I actually agree with the strategy you have towards development (it actually makes you get things done), however i just wanted to show you how easy making a loading screen actually is in C2... You just add a sprite which acts like a title screen/logo/whatever and a resizeable 9-patch, the hotspot of which is at the left edge and the width of which is set to "Loadingprogress*SomeRandomAmount", perhaps also add a low bitrate music and it's done. :)
This project is not designed for old laptops. I have designed way to many projects thinking of supporting everyone using a 640x480 screen on internet explorer 3 for way to long.
This isn't about the widest audience, this is about making something I would use and not skimping on what I want. I know that sounds selfish but this project is for me ;)
Chuckled a bit about the IE3 part, but in regards to the actual point you're making - well, there's nothing wrong with that, as long as Moore's law holds true and HTML5 becomes more widespread, there shouldn't be much of an issue, if you don't intend to port the game for mobile platforms.
Certainly not going to develop for an old laptop like the DELL D510 that you say you are using.. that's just asking too much lol
You know too much because you might have checked my post history, sorry.

But the laptop (i usually call it a "netbook", so people don't think i live like in the 90's) is just fine for seeing how the game performs on my Android smartphone. It's funny, just how downscaled processors become over time, as there are many devices the size of a phone which are much more powerful than a couple year old laptop (anything below is "a couple". don't call me old :/).
Either way, good luck with your project, looks good so far!
