Hi guys,

I set frame rate of my game to 100 and I checked machine independent speed. Will the speed of my game be on all computers the same or not?

Thx for the answers

Firstly, don't set the framerate to 100. The vast majority of displays have a refresh rate of 60Hz - ie. 60 frames per second. It's pointless setting the framerate above that.

The "machine independent speed" option will *try* to ensure that the game events run at a constant framerate, by skipping frames (not refreshing what is shown on screen), which could make animation seem choppy. It should help with graphically intensive games, but won't make a lot of difference if the game is slowed by fastloops etc.

i agree with sketchy. if your having framerate issues you should look in to whats causing them instead of trying to bypass it. projects that deal with large amounts of active objects tend to run bad on slower machines. i learned that quick lol.

Thx for your answers guys,

The problem i have is that i would like to change fullscreen/window mode during runtime. But only "Standard" video setting is allowing that. Now when i set to Standard my scrolling is chopy. I have found a solution for scrolling in "Directx+VRAM" and FPS 60. Now i would like to know if is possible to change from fullscreen to window-mode and back during runtime on "Directx+VRAM" video settings?

thx for answers

Try Alt-Enter to switch between modes.
If it doesn't work play with the window settings till it does. I can't remember the exact settings off hand.

Yes it's possible. There are varies objects that can help with that. I think there is one called "ultimate fullscreen object" or something. I think there is also a way to do it using the built-in actions, but I can't remember.

Yes, it is possible to jump between windowed mode and full screen at runtime. Something like that would make sense if your game has one "game screen" and several menu and settings screens. It's also possible to make a windowed game or app where every frame has a different resolution and screen placement.
