Thanks NN81 I spent a full day yesterday learning new compilers to see if I could get a build from Construct 3 but I had nothing but errors when trying to compile using Cordova CLI, also no success with phonegap from the C3 project. I did some testing to find out what the problem is, and to me it seems C3 export/build is causing the lag in game (When the project is a .c3p file). I switched over to C3 a week ago from C2 and carried on building my game in C3. I took my most recent C2 copy of the game and built using C3 export and the debug APK runs sweet.
Unless someone from Scirra can reassure me that release APKs won't have this same problem, I am faced with finishing my game in C2 because this lag doesn't exist when it's built using C3 build server.
I also tried Cocoon which successfully compiled my C2 game and produced a smooth debug APK. Cocoon did not complete any builds of my C3 game at all, always saying that it couldn't read the config.xml file
I just don't get why the lag is present when the project is compiled from C3, but it runs super smooth when built from a C2 project.
I really want to continue my game in Construct 3 but I am unable to produce a smooth debug APK and also unable to compile a C3 build using Cordova, phonegap and cocoon, all of which give errors.
Any advice would be appreciated, thanks
