this is a good lead. Because NW is open source right? Or something changed?

Thanks for pointing that out. Makes me feel better about it since I missed that in the original complaint.

Looks like it was fixed in the latest C2 update? Can anyone confirm?

Just saw that too! How often do the beta versions get pushed to the prod version?

I'm downloading 177 to test..

Edit: IT WORKS!! Touch & Mouse input works fine AND my audio bug is no more.

Thank you Scirra & all here, I was worried it would take a long time waiting on something on NW's end.

That change was originally made to try to work around 1-10 second long pauses that some users reported. Is that still an issue in r177 with node-webkit 0.10.2? Even if so it seems a less severe issue, since at least most of the time it's responsive.

I never encountered the long pauses in my testing, and so far since the update, playing it I havent encountered any issue. It's smooth as silk, as it should be!

I had freezing issues, but haven't tried new version yet. I will wait till stable will be released thought.

I still have that. Guess i'm gonna stay on v 0.8.6 which you can get here https://github.com/rogerwang/node-webkit.
Don't know if much have improved since if any.
