    better FPS?

    Hi,
    I'm on the way to create a little 2D roll game,
    but the fps sometimes goes very low,
    does anyone know a way to improve my game to get a better fps?

    Here's my game (beta version)
    http://www.lewxx.eu/games/2dp.htm

    I got in fight-mode: 15-25 / 50 fps

    I think, later when I have added the sounds & more graphics,
    the fps will become still less.


    I've already included a fps check, that switch quality:

    PHP Code:
    in StartScript:
    quu=1
    ------------------
    Every Frame Script:
    if (
    fps <= 18){
        
    this._highquality=0
    } else { // more than 18 fps:
        
    this._highquality=1

    this helps a little, but it's not very nice

    PS: the enemies in fight mode look very awesome, look at them, fantastic!
    No, just kidding. I have to create some real enemies, that stick-figures are just for testing.

    or should I just wait for the new version of 3DFA with full Flash 9 support?

    Hmmmm, I'd have to see the code to really help you improve the fps. By the way, how did you make the FPS display in the bottom right?

    FPS Start Script:
    PHP Code:
    fra=0t=0fps=0
    Every Frame Script
    PHP Code:
    fra++; 
    if (
    getTimer()>=t){
        
    fps=fra*2.5+" FPS";
        
    fra=0;
        
    t=getTimer()+400

    hmm my start script is about 515 lines

    the every-frame-script is just:
    PHP Code:
    // ===> FPS:
    fra++
    if (
    getTimer()>=ti){
        if ((
    fra*2.5) <= 15){
            if (
    quu == 1){
                
    quu=0
                this
    ._highquality=0
            
    }
        } else {
            if (
    quu == 0){
                
    quu=1
                this
    ._highquality=1
            
    }
        }
        
    fps=fra*2.5+" FPS"fra=0ti=getTimer()+400
    }

    // ====> Enemy attack 
    if (in_fight){        //when fighting
        
    wait--             // goes about 10 -130, relative to enemy
        
    if (wait<=0){
            
    root.geg_att() // make damage
        
    }
    } else {            
    // when walking on map
        
    w_upd--         // will be set to 15
        
    if (w_upd<=0){
            
    root.upd_bars()     // add some hp to bar and update it
        
    }
    }
    // ====> Read the level data, that should be loaded from an extern file
    if (data.loaded && tt){//if loaded: read level-data (only once)
        
    tt false    //tt=true at the start
        
    clv=1        // current-level = start-level = 1
        
    root.read(data.lv1)
        
    root.lvl_info()
    }
    level "map "+clv    // just to see which level is shown (at the bottom) 
    PS:
    could the low fps be caused by included fonts, or by the gradients?


    oh 2:15 in the night (in Germany), hmmm i think I will go to sleep now, tomorrow is school ^^
