Pseudolonewolf`s Avatar CBC Beta Testing Begins Fri 17th Dec 2010 4:55am

Category: Games (FH)

I've started beta testing on Clarence's Big Chance, but currently only Rating Orb M β Firequill and I are testers. I'll select some other people from the comments on the other articles within a day or two.

But there's a problem, it seems... Something technical that maybe people familiar with Flash coding can help me with.
During the whole time I've been working on CBC, it's been running smoothly, with a consistent framerate and no noticeable lag whatsoever.
However, now that I've finally come to the point where I'm playing it in a browser for testing, it lags really obviously and it's quite a pain, especially since it's been working fine so far in the standalone player.

I've been searching for hours now about what this could be, but I've not really found anything particularly useful for solving the problem...

Something that would help me would be some kind of Profiler. These show the speed of each function so then you know what to focus on fixing, rather than just editing bits of code all over the place and hoping for the best...
I've seen loads of pages going on about a Profiler for Flex, but can't find anything like this relating to AS3.

It's unlikely that many AS3 developers of the level that would need to use profilers visit this site... but just in case there are some of you out there, what do you do in situations like this? Do you have some kind of profiler that you use to pinpoint the cause of lag or just to generally optimise the speed?

I guess I hadn't said anything on this one, I though I had, but oh well.

I saw the people you had picked for Beta testers, and I will say that they all seem to be good Beta testers. I've met most, if not all of them, in the chat, and they all seem like beta tester material.

So yes, uhm, merry Christmas! I hope to see the finished game at some point soon.

Hey I would Wonder if you would let me Beta Test this game. I really have nothing to do than to Play the new Minecraft Beta and that's getting a bit boring maybe you would like it.

Hey Pesudolonewolf I was wondering if I could be a beta tester for this game. Oh and I loved mardek chapter 3 and was wondering if you have an idea about when the next one will be started.

I'm here to say I'm very excited about your new game, you've been working on it with record breaking speed. And I hope you can recover from your holiday blues (don't worry, it only comes once a year.)

Maybe you should look at that Twitter of yours. Apparently, the third and fourth last twit you made, was 41 years ago. Just saying.
