Engine Efficiency?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Wed May 01, 2013 7:19 am

As you can see in the screen below, I am using a debug menu. I copy/pasted this from another person about a week ago. Can anyone tell me what Engine Efficiency stands for? I average between 18 and 25. Is this good or bad?

Thanks!

It must just be a variable the developer has cooked up.

Probably based on some sort of mathematic mumbo jumbo, it's not an official statistic, as far as I know.
As long as I can move left, right and fire, I'm Happy...

Maybe it's using the cpuutilisation expression, then multiplying it by 100 and then rounding it.
Cpuutilisation shows how long it takes for your cpu to process the game's logic for one second. The value is usually around 0.1 and 0.3, then you do what I said above and you get 10 to 30

To get an actual answer rather than just guesses, you'll either need to show us the code so we can figure it out or ask the original developer you got it from, although 7Soul's guess sounds probable.

There's nothing with that name built in to Construct 2 so you should ask the developer. @7Soul's guess is reasonable though.
