No destructors.
No way to manually delete objects or at least force garbage collection.
Using constants instead of vars doesn't speed things up. They are practically the same.
Every function call causes quite a bit of additional CPU load. No inline functions.

I thought his topic was about the program, not AS.

Guess I was wrong.

I have this EXACTLY, and it is just godamn terrible. I'll make an animation up to about two hundred frames, and when I preview it its choppy as hell, and I have to take a load of stuff out. I've tried to find an extension which allows for better swf previewing, but if anyone else does, please let me know.

well sometimes you can fix the flash player lag by restarting your computer. i thought it was my flash game that was all glitchy but youtube videos and madness flashes were laggy too so i just had to restart. that doesnt justify it though

no hardware acceleration, the fact that the last two releases (CS4 and CS5) had hardly any improvements...

Sorry, I was half asleep... and maybe a bit drunk.

But hey, keep being cool. Nice sarcasm. ^_^


Indescriptive topic names have left me in despair!

I think they do use hardware acceleration now to a point don't they?

I agree with the second point, as do the rest of the flash community

Yeah, so. CS at 1024x768 is nothing. If that is ALL you can do on that game, your computer is junk. Mine runs Left 4 Dead 2 with max detail @ 1920x1080 with absolutely no lag. Same goes for most Flash games.
