@Ashley I've noticed that jQuery is one of the bottleneck in performance, especially under PhoneGap. So my question is, for what exactly is construct using it for? Just for the resizing or is tangled inside the engine?
I have C2 workign with Game Closure on the web simulator no problem. I have C2 working starting to work with GC on Android. But I received an error that looks like GC has a problem I need to get over. So until I get around the GC error I'm not sure that C2 will for sure work.
When it work I will update in the GC thread. Also I will use the bouncing gravity ball test that I posted on the web with comparisons to CJS.
However I was able to remove jquery. It wasn't needed. Thanks to Ash letting me know that it can be removed :)
@Ashley I really can't find it now so I can't give you the citation. There is a presentation about mobile HTML5 games in which they presented data showing that jQuery severely slows down mobile web application especially under phonegap. Factually if you do a quick web serch there is plenty of people having issues with speed + jquery.
One of the things I noticed myself is that PhoneGap fps increase exponentially the less js there is. Between Construct2 minified and unminified there is a difference of 5fps which is huge, it's safe to assume just from that that having one less js file can give a perfomance improvement.
