New 'Ghost busting' HTML5 demo

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Fri Feb 11, 2011 5:52 am

As mentioned in the r27 thread, there's a new demo (along the lines of the old 'rain demo') here:
http://www.scirra.com/labs/ghostbustinghtml5
You can get the .capx (for r27) here.

I thought I'd get some feedback - is it working properly in everyone's browsers? Especially interested in Mac and Linux users. Also, do you think it makes a good demo? Anything wrong with it? Thanks!

I noticed something odd. In Firefox the framerate dips a lot when the camera view is scrolled away from a corner. So standing around in the middle of the level (not moving, just standing there) gets me about 12-15fps. But if I stand around in a corner of the level, where two layout edges meet, I get about double that amount. It doesn't seem to matter much how many ghosts are on the screen at the time, but more on where the camera is at the moment.

Neat. =)

Sometimes when I move and click at the same time the controls will get stuck and the character will move much faster in whatever direction he gets stuck in (it seems it's random since I was moving right and he got stuck and when I let go of the keys he 'ran' to the left...)

Maybe it would be a better idea to set the controls to WASD. It's less awkward for me, since I use a laptop, and it won't cause problems related to the page itself.

Edit: Also, I can't open the cap in R27, it, for some reason, is complaining that AbsoluteX is not an expression of the Mouse object.

I don't know why people get so low FPS, i get 60-63 FPS on firefox 4, win 7 32bits.

WASD is a pain to play with on an AZERTY keyboard... like the one i use. :)

But DXCV should work ok on both :lol:

Oops, think I messed up the 32-bit build. One tick...
