on node-webkit freeze or input lag issue

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Post » Thu Aug 28, 2014 6:23 am

As I said in my first post in the thread, I have not encountered this problem before (mostly used preview instead of exports). Just wanted to see if I could reproduce the problem (as described by megatronx) and help to produce some files rogerwang could test with.

Can see if I can export some more with node-webkit and see if they also get freezing problems. But would probably be great if they who first reported problems with freezes or input lag (I have not noticed this yet) could post some files for rogerwang.

@Lunatrap, could you please also prepare an URL as describe in the first post?

I cannot reproduce it with @Giganten 's URL. It looks like hardware specific but more cases might be helpful. If I cannot reproduce it in the end, I may have to build a version with some diagnostic feature and then let you run it in your system.

@Giganten what about the URL on the same system (where original node-webkit freezes) with Chrome 35? It can be downloaded from

Exported a file with two text objects that displays random numbers and a sprite with drag and drop and touch input. Have not noticed any freezing in there yet.

So I did another test with four sprites with platform behavior that randomly goes left, right and jump. This export freezes.

Took the same file again and added touch input and exported. Have not noticed any freezing yet.
Tried with the file I posted here and add touch input same result haven't observed any freezing yet.

Either touch input does something or it's completely random if the export gets freezing problems or not. @Ashley do you have any idea?

@Giganten - can you prepare a demo like what @rogerwang asked for when the freezing occurs?

Hmm, you might be onto something. I was worried eventually my games would run into this issue..

All my builds have Touch Object (due to cross-platform games) set to Use Mouse on. I don't use Mouse Object.

I also never use the Platform behavior.

My test was involving only 4 sprites with sin movement. That's it and no Platform behavior. And the exported "game" would start freezing around 20 mins in. Before that I had a normal prototype that would freeze from time to time in same fashion ( and if i remember correctly it was even in preview ), I ignored it, because I thought it might have been my fault. But it kept freezing so I just left that prototype and started new project. That was a year or two years ago. Now the test with 4 sprites was done several months ago.
