Chrome fps drop

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Tue Sep 10, 2013 6:11 pm

When I play music in either Media Player or VLC, the fps will drop to between 40-45 when testing in Chrome, if I pause or stop the music the fps will jump back up to 60.

Firefox and IE aren't affected, and I don't have any extensions added to Chrome.

Just thought I would mention it just in-case anyone else had come across this.

I came to the forums cause I'm having issues with fps when previewing in Chrome. It just happened today and I'm sure I didn't change any settings in Chrome or Construct2.

I think that somehow vysnc and/or triple buffering are not working.sebasrhcp2013-09-10 18:28:28

I had to enable Aero to solve this.

Also I have just found that I get the same drop in fps using Chrome when a steam chat window flashes with a new message. As soon as I stop the chat window flashing the fps jumps back up to 60.

Again Firefox and IE are fine.

Just figured out it is when you have multiple monitors, if both Media Player and Construct 2 are on the same monitor everything works fine.

If I drag Media Player over to my other monitor I lose 20fps when testing.

@sebasrhcp @arontwose - what os are you running? On vista, if aero is off then the window manager is not hardware accelerated which causes the fps hit.

@Arima

Windows 7 Pro 64bit - Service Pack 1 and aero theme, double checked by selecting a different areo theme and got the same results.

Arima:

I have Win7 x64 SP1. Installing Java x64 was the only thing I did until vsync issues appeared with Aero disabled. Enabling Aereo solves this, disabling Aereo made vsync issues reappear.

I'll just have to stick with Aereo I guess. :)

Huh - that's interesting. I thought having aero off only caused the window manager on vista to not be hardware accelerated, but I guess it happens on 7 too.
