Thanks to @heyguy for directing me here.

Hi,

Not so much a post of my WIP (even though it is one) but more of a ask for help regarding a flicker issue. The backgrounds occasionally flash black, and I cannot figure out why. It seems to only happen in the NW.js preview but not in the HTML web version?

I am really stumped why this flicker happens. I have the latest video driver from nVidia, etc.

Thanks,

Is it related to the 1000px wide/tall tiling backgrounds overlapping with transparency using Sine behavior (sawtooth)? I tried to make scrolling backgrounds based on @jerementor idea from his Udemy course (that checkerboard diagonal scrolling effect) but maybe I screwed it up. I've got a 256x256 tiling background which I offset -128, -128 and set the amplitude to 128.

Please help :)

I'm not sure I noticed any flickering problem with this game? What does the flickering look like for you? Do you know the steps for how I can replicate your issue?

(I have a flickering problem with nwjs 0.15, occasionally the screen will flicker black, so I'm wondering if it's a related problem to yours.)

Hi @alspal yep that's what happens. It flickers black randomly and occasionally and I cannot for the life of me figure it out. It only happens with NWJS, the web is fine.

That's interesting, your game didn't trigger it for me! It only happens sometimes with NWJS for my game though, and not on other's computers. So it's a bit weird :P

I guess you have the same problem as I had with NWjs flickering. See my post here viewtopic.php?f=146&t=181268&p=1064822#p1064822
