How do I preview compressed project?

Get help using Construct 2

Post » Sat May 09, 2015 11:36 am

Was messing with export options for some sprites and decided to turn them to jpeg with 0 quality just to see if that works in preivew. Turns out it doesn't - all sprites are high quality as usual. True quality shows up only after export and that's understandable cause compression takes additional time.

But my question: how do I preview a project with compressed sprites? Is it possible? If not then we miss a necessary option cause we won't be able to analyze the game properly at least on phones and tablets(I think so).

Oh and a sub question - does jpeg or PNG-8 compression help increase performance on mobile devices?

Forward thanks!

because jpeg and png-8 compression only change the download size and nothing in-game (all images are fully unpacked in the memory) using compressed sprites in preview wouldn't make any difference in performance.

So while playing the game a 64x64 pixel sprite will use 64x64x4 bytes independent of the compression or format it was saved with.
I told my dentist I had trouble with my teeth and asked her to fix it without looking in my mouth..
