Profiler, inexplicable amount

Discussion and feedback on Construct 2

Hey @Ashley and others who would understand. It's been a hectic last few weeks. I sat down with the debugger-profiler to see if some of the bad spots can be improved.

Reading the profiler I find that i'm not sure how some of the estimations are where they are.

What I don't understand is how some of the numbers standout.
As can see the Event-Kitchen is 22.9%.
but counting up everything I don't see how the count comes out to that.

I just don't get where the 22.5% is coming from. Does each event sheet count for a large %?

Everything is in a Group. Each group shows the %. The groups themeselves are all very low. But once we count the root group/event sheet. There is a large jump.

Anyone have any idea why?jayderyu2013-10-31 22:43:14

The measurement for event sheets also counts includes. If Event-Kitchen includes Mechanics, then the time to run Mechanics is also counted in Event-Kitchen. I think it adds up this way. It is a little confusing I guess, since event sheets are listed next to each other rather than nested.

@Ashley
That explains then why the count is so close to each other. I was under the impression they were there own individual estimate.

How my set up works is that there is a
Room Layout
Include Room-Event-Sheet(which is specific room based stuff)
Room-Event-Sheet then Includes the root Mechanics.

It is a little unusual to read, but I get that now. thanks for the interpretation. So for me.

Room is the two main ones as it includes it's own and mechanics.

You rock as usual.
