Game pausing?

  • Hi.

    I've been following a breakout tutorial and the game is working great but it keeps pausing for like 3-4 tenths of a second and the ball freezes in flight and the fps go to almost 0.

    is this a bug or does someone know whats going on? its ruining the game which was starting to be really fun.

  • I've seen this recently in my own tests, and - for me - it's been down to the destruction of Flash player by most browsers.

    Make sure you don't have a tab open with a Flash advert on it (which means almost any advert, because a lot of them cycle content and occasionally still throw a Flash ad into the mix), while the browser is deciding that it doesn't want to play Flash any more, it pauses everything for a fraction of a second... very annoying. Seen in Chrome and IE11 on Windows 7 Home.

  • What system / browser(s) are you testing on?

    Have you tried disbling the addons?

    Is there anything showing in the browser console?

    Is it possible to upload a .capx here or provide a link so we can test it also?

    I use an ad blocker to get rid of those vile things

    System: 6 core 3.6ghz CPU, 16gb ddr3 ram, GTX 770 2gb GPU, SSD hard drive.

    Browser: Firefox

    Do you mean browser addons? The only one I think I have is an ad blocker, I don't see how/why that's affecting it but I will try disabling it. As for browser console I'm sorry, I don't understand what you mean

    Well the game is the breakout tutorial from this site, I would upload the file if I knew how to do it. But I don't think I do. Sorry

  • Do yet see any stuttering or jank when testing the in-built demos, such as the ghost shooter example?

    For reference, I use firefox and the built-in ghost shooter rain example runs steadily at 60 fps, so I'd expect your system not to jank when testing.

    Nope, that demo is butter smooth.
