Ghost laser demo experience

Bugs will be moved here once resolved.

I downloaded the free version of Construct, created a new project, but then decided to open an example project. I opened up Ghost with lasers, clicking the green play button to Run Layout, and watched the game come up. I was able to control the character and shoot lasers, but the responsiveness of the game was quite a turnoff. When I died, a message was displaced to hit the space bar to "try and beat my score," but rather than restarting the game, it appears to cause a new "instance" of the audio track to get created. An agonizing loop of spooky audio cycles over and over again until I close the tab.

Many errors show up in the Error Console, not necessarily in this order:
Warning: The 'charCode' property of a keydown event should not be used. The value is meaningless.
Source File: http://localhost:50000/preview.html
Line: 0

Error: uncaught exception: [Exception... "An attempt was made to use an object that is not, or is no longer, usable" code: "11" nsresult: "0x8053000b (NS_ERROR_DOM_INVALID_STATE_ERR)" location: "http://localhost:50000/Audio_plugin.js Line: 151"]

Warning: Unexpected token in attribute selector: '!'.
Source File: http://localhost:50000/preview.html
Line: 0

Warning: Unknown property 'box-shadow'. Declaration dropped.

Line: 100

AND then my browser crashed. Luckily Firefox saved my work for writing this forum post.

I also tried "Custom movement (asteroids)", but hitting the space bar did nothing at all after being presented with the opening screen in my browser.

HTML5 is only well-supported by modern browsers. You should keep your browser up to date to have the best experience. Upgrade to Firefox 6 and try again! Since 3.6 Firefox has gained hardware acceleration and many performance and stability improvements, so you should find it works a lot better. Remember to keep your browser up to date for the best HTML5 experience.
