I recently submitted Jammin' With Chu to a game jam (found on gamejolt at http://gamejolt.com/games/other/jammin-with-chu/30339/) and noticed it likes to freeze and unfreeze sporadically. At first I thought it was because of the particles, but when I set the particle counts to a debug text, it never went above 50.

Is there any chance you can look at my capx and give me some tips on preventing the game from freezing like that? It's not a very good game but the freezing basically eliminates any and all fun.

Capx is too large to upload here. It can be found at this dropbox link: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/62554382/JamminWithChu.capx

Thank you for your help!

Your capx uses a plugin I don't have/use (gamejolt), so I can't open it..

But why use a debug text when C2 has a build in debugger to show you exactly all the things that are going on?
I told my dentist I had trouble with my teeth and asked her to fix it without looking in my mouth..

I suggest you select the Chrome preview option and use the Debug feature. You'll get lots of useful informations and hopefuly be able to narrow down to what is the issue. Also if you're running it on a Win7/8 laptop in Node-Webkit you should give a look at my post from today in the "General" section.
