Android export Tips & Tricks

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

I was thinking it would be really cool to look at the current state of our exports, and find the absolute best way to export performance wise, and create a cool little guide, I would be willing to do this, and my first step is researching, what is the VERY best way as far as performance to export with intel xdk/crosswalk, what are your experiences?

I've found, on mobile, rotation is something to be very aware of. As in, on a lower end device, even a handful of rotating objects can incur a massive performance hit, especially if you are rotating them every tick.

This isn't some shortcoming of C2 either: rotation is just a very expensive operation to perform compared to, say, moving an object around.

There's plenty of other good advice for mobile, but this is something I haven't seen mentioned very often, even though it can grind a game to a halt.

yes, i had that issue, with a game i had scaled at 160x90 px and really small audio, i could not wonder why it was soo laggy, like 15 fps, i think it might have been rotation, also maybe scaling slows things down, i've heard optimal resolution is something like 320x240, is that still the case?

320x240 seems like it would look pretty bad unless you are going for a pixel-art style. Or is that what you are talking about?
