Stable FPS Test

I tried one more time to get a stable frameRate in browser enviroment and an old workaround works fine for me now (flash9player tested).

//-- pseudo code
lastExitFrameMillis: int

function init(): void
{
	lastExitFrameMillis = getTimer();
	frameRate = 200;
}

function onEnterFrameLoop( event: Event ): void
{
	// execute code
	// [...]

	while( getTimer() - lastExitFrameMillis < 20 ){};

	lastExitFrameMillis = getTimer();
}

My results:
IE6.0 = 49 FPS
FireFox 1.5.0.3 = 47 FPS

Please test with your system and post you results

  1. FireFox 1.5.0.3 = 49 (max and most often, although it did dip in places very briefly)

    If it makes a difference my set up is a 1.3ghz pentium 4 from the old days.

  2. I’d be interested to know what affect putting a looping sound on the root timeline would have on this (if any!)

  3. @ash: I tried this a long time before (flash6) and the playback was very chunky when the movies sucks some performance from the processor. I cannot believe, that this will be better now. try out !

  4. IE 6= 47-48
    FF 1.5.0.3= 44-48

    Frame rate depends on intensivity of number of user interactions with balls at the stage.

  5. Mac OS X 10.4.6
    PPC G5 1.8
    Flash Player 9.0b

    FPS at standstill:
    FireFox 1.5.0.3/4 = 38-40
    Safari 2.0.3 = 49-50

    PS – In Safari click’n anywhere (non-link) in the content area of this page opened the test movie page. I couldn’t use the comment form until I switched to FF.

  6. WinXP SP2
    Athlon XP 1600+
    Firefox 1.5.0.4 = ~48fps (from the lowest 41 to highest 49, but idling at 48)

  7. Yes, runs at a stable 49 for me to, firefox and ie. If I try the other example with the ability to change framerate and set it to max, it runs at ~480 :)

    Really nice work btw(as always).

  8. Windows XP SP1
    P4 – 2.6Ghz

    IE 6.0 = 50 FPS
    Mozilla 1.7.13 = 49 FPS
    FireFox 1.5.0.4 = 46 FPS

    good job André Michelle :)

  9. P4/1.8Ghz
    Firefox 1.5.0.4

    It runs smoothly though the firefox cpu usage goes way up over 50%. Maybe this is the price we have to pay.

  10. Wow, I just did the test on the new Intel Mac Beta player and it runs with 50 fps in Safari. Firefox (1.5.0.4) does 45fps but that browser is crap on the Mac anyway.

  11. On PS3 NetFront I get 44 at first and then it drops down to about 20 fps towards the end. But it looks very smooth the whole time. And I think the RAM usage didn’t go about 22% IIRC.

    Thanks
