OK after some quick experimenting.. I was getting 500-600 FPS with this version. Then I set about deleting each particle emitter one by one starting with the asteroid particles and the frame rate only went up around 50-100 FPS. Eventually I deleted the background glittering stars and my FPS shot up to 2000+! So... that emitter was causing a huge slowdown. I disabled the effects on that layer and it runs at 2000+ FPS so that's where the problem was... at least for me.

Try removing those effects and see what your FPS is :)

Nice :) I knew to keep away from the shader stuff but I didn't think it'd slow things down that much. After all it was only a few particles here and there. Mind you for that glow shader, you have to add the blur horizontal shader then blur vertical before you can use it. So 3 shaders in total... I guess that's why!

haha wow this is a blast from the past! Updated link in first post but if you're lazy like me, here it is here - [url:1u2nnr8j]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/666574/Starfield%20No%20Events%20v2%20Asteroid%20Terrain.cap[/url:1u2nnr8j]

It's weird 'cause I was working on the game the other day that this tester lead onto - Dojem! It has a bug that I couldn't figure out but will post as soon as I fix it (it all works in the new Construct Classic r1 except for this damn collision bug). Not had time to seriously have a go at it really...

You can find Dojem here - [url:1u2nnr8j]http://www.scirra.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=3031&p=23328[/url:1u2nnr8j]

Sagal, hahah yeah well I have done a few things you know! I just didn't want to seem too productive at the time ;)
