Low FPS on Crosswalk exported project.

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Sun Dec 07, 2014 7:22 pm

Hi!
I made a game with pretty many objects on big layout that i was happy to see that it ran on stable 60fps on my LG G3 when i tested the game via WiFi. "Great!! Construct 2 is AWSOME!!".
But once exported using Intel XDK Crosswalk the game was laggy and ran on 20-30fps. Anyone else have this problems? I've red somewhere that what you see when testing over WiFi is what you get so i didnt bother exporting my project until it was done and I dont really want to change alot in the game. Is there something in particular that Crosswalk cant handle? Physic bahavior? Sprite Font? etc..?

Crosswalk is based on Chrome for Android so in theory it ought to run identically. Crosswalk is a couple of versions behind Chrome, so it may be that it gets updated in the near future and then will match Chrome for Android again.

Thank you for the response! I tried the game on SGS5 instead and it ran smoothly at 60 fps. So i figured it had to be the UHD resolution on the G3 that was the problem. So i changed the scaling quality to low and it got better. Not good but I got around 45 fps. So, should i design my games in UHD resolution? Or will that just make it worse for other phones?

Its a strange problem since Crosswalk even though its behind Chrome in build, a few builds ago it was still running fine. Contact Intel_Roberts in the XDK thread and maybe submit your CAPX to the guys at Intel for them to troubleshoot, they are very helpful.

@Detteman i also have this issue on s3 and for the most part it's just like you said about the screen. the S3 has really terrible drivers and its cpu/gpu just arnt capable of rendering at its full screen res its not really a XDK issue even coding native the S3 has a lot of issues. the reason is is it came out like right when Super hd screen came out but right before Cpus had a upgrade to really support the resolution
