hi guys. so ive been really busy for the past few weeks, but now i went and bought a new computer. installed construct classic, copy/pasted all the effects and plugins ive downloaded and decided to continue my project. what i noticed was confusing:
i have currently 3 layouts. the first 2 work fine, but the third, work in progress layout (well they all are) doesnt work properly. theres something weird going on. im not sure if its connected to v-sync, but when testing the layout, everything moves kind of "slowly" and constantly jerking. as if the framerate was set to 20-30 with a constant stutter.
now i started to experiment and pinpoint the problem (note that the layout was working perfectly fine on my older,much much weaker computer)
first i switched to unlimited framerate and voil?. there it is, everything started running smooth,with about 500-700 fps, the layout has a few thousand (not individual) objects currently.
i switch back to v-sync and the problem comes back.
i did some further experiments, tried to delete objects,layers to see if there was something causing the odd behavior. deleting stuff didnt change anything.i made a new layout with only solid sprite and a sprite with platform behav, to see if perhaps my platform character has been corrupted or something, copy pasted a new platform character from a working layout, but the problem persists. then happened something truly strange.
i decided to make a new game project just to further test stuff, while my current project was still running. and there it is. new project with platform char and solid sprite,so i had two applications running at the same time and-to my amazement-the layout that wasnt working a minute ago, started running properly with v-sync on..?

i closed the new project preview and the problem came back.
so, that layout only runs smooth and works properly when theres another project running <img src="smileys/smiley26.gif" border="0" align="middle" />
i really dont understand this behavior. does anyone have any idea what could be causing it? i can post the .cap (though i prefer not to) but only via pm. the project is not really that public. here are my new comp specs, if they help at all:
AMD athlon II X3 455 processor 3.30 GHz
AMD Radeon HD 6700 Series
RAM 4,00 GB
64-bit operating system
all the drivers should be OK.
im using the same monitor and stuff, i just gutted my pc and installed new components inside and everything is working perfect, aside from that layout issue explained above.
id be really grateful if anyone has any insight on this, i wouldnt want to have two projects running all the time and im not sure if that unlimited framerate option is the best either. im really puzzled by this.
