    My highscores dont work with ver7 player. They are loaded from php script. All I see is [type Function] in the players name list and thats all.

    Any idea what might cause this?

    Tested in IE using this movie (top left button adds objects, I used 30 for my tests).

    6.0 Player - 10 FPS average
    7.0 Player - 18 FPS average

    FPS jumped around a lot more in 7.0 player, between 17 and 20, but 18 was the average.

    Does this mean Flash 7 is not far behind?

    beta on a mac

    i'm running on one of the new G4 powerbooks and the new player feels faster. i haven't put it to a real test yet, but i have noticed a small fix. i used to mouse over buttons and the little hand would appear, but wouldn't go away unless i moved the mouse off the movie. so that's fixed now.

    let's hope this player helps flash performance on macs.

    well, I gotta say that the FP7 shows increased performance on slower systems... replicating TiefighT example, w/ 30 boxes at a max velocity of 10, I was getting an FPS of 8 w/FP6 and an average FPS of 16 w/FP7. This is running on a overclocked 500MHz celeron and 192mb ram. On my 1GHz machine I saw little change from 16 FPS to 18 FPS.

    for me the listeners and objects breakdown the rest of the code:

    see the background? it's not suppose to be inverted like that. Otherwise 23 entities have a decrease of 7 fps from 31 to 24.

    I've not d/loaded the beta yet, and I was going to ask if anyone had tried that speed test thing so we could finally drop the 4 syntax.

    Cheers Blink

    I dont know if this happened to anyone else, but lately for the past few days I have been unable to view any flash.
    When i come to a page that contains flash I get an error saying, "The application or dll C:\Windows\System32\macromed\flash\flash.ocx is not a valid windows image. Please check this against your installation diskette." for every flash game/video on the page.
    Does any one know what this is about... I'm not sure if its because of the new player or something else.

    EDIT: I got it fixed, went through this bothersome process of deleting flash.ocx and swflash.ocx and installed flash 7 again.
