FPS Performance Preloader

Author Comments

Mostly when a game runs slow you click on the low quality button ether in options or right click.
I built this preloader to detect the speed of the clients computer allowing for, the game, to auto adjust to the fps that the computer can handle.
There are settings withing the preloader to let you determine the calibration.
The preloader is as2 sorry as3 users...

Hope it could be some use to anyone who makes games with dynamic effects...

High Quality! Thanks dude! :)

jjwallace responds:

yeah, its for the community....

I had this idea ages ago

back when I had my account I had an idea like this but had no idea how to do it.... anyway well done for it, briliant execution and all that butit would be nice if you could include a tutorial for coding it perhaps, or maybhe suggest alternate methods, also high file size.

jjwallace responds:

um, well the music was what i put in to load.... the file size without the music is more like 28 k, it was 70 k, but now is 28k.... i had to put something in for the preloader to load...

Good idea.

I'm going to nitpick. I know it probably doesn't matter with download rates being pretty fast, but 1.7MB for a preloader? And it takes about 30 seconds to run. That might get old if the game loads in only a few seconds. Make sure to put in a button to skip the test and set the quality manually.

jjwallace responds:

no it is 28 k ...

i will put manual mode..
