In one of the newer flash player versions, adobe added a feature to the flash player that drops the frame rate of the swf to something like 2 FPS when it's minimized (ie. you switch tabs on your browser, you minimize your browser, etc).

I have made a multi-player game and this "feature" is causing a real headache. Players are able to minimize their game and avoid dying (as their client is more or less paused while the other opponents continue playing).

Is there any way to get around this? I can't see to find any documentation on how to turn this feature off.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
