Performance?

This forum is currently in read-only mode.
  • I noticed when I made an EXE file of my current project (Chamber) it runs at about half the framerate that it does if I just run the layout from within Construct. Is this normal? I have never noticed it before...

  • ouch hmm what could be causing it? youve got the framerate vsynced right?

    Yeah I left it at default settings, so it should be fine? It's only on Chamber that it's happening, but I haven't tried to rebild EXEs for anything else yet.

    I'm gonna try it on my other PC later and see if the problem is still there.

    It's weird though because if I run it through Construct it's fine, but if I build the EXE and run it, the framerate is bad.

  • Try Construct 3

    Develop games in your browser. Powerful, performant & highly capable.

    Try Now Construct 3 users don't see these ads
  • Have you sent the EXE to someone else to see what happens?

  • I just figured out what was causing it... stupid Dreamscape. As soon as I paused the Dreamscene it started running 3x better. LOL idiot.

    I am able to quote myself for this one! Although search failed to find me the post

    "Dreamscene is the devil."

    It's so true it hurts!

    Besides "the devil," it is a Vista Ultimate feature for animated desktop wallpapers (just a movie file that plays fullscreen).

  • eww, as cool as it seems if its gonna take that much to use it I dont think its worth it.

    It only affects things on the laptop... if your computer is good enough it won't phase anything. Besides, it's meant to auto-pause itself when you run a 3D accelerated app... but for some reason it decided it wanted to keep playing.

    Has some nice effects though... worth checking out for the wow factor at least.
