Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Making games to run faster (older computers)

So i have created a game that uses mainly PaperSprites. There is no problem with medium PC:s. Games are running fine. The problem is when i example package the game and try to play it in a normal laptop that isn't great but not too bad either. The game runs very slowly!

There isn't any fancy graphics or anything like that, only a PaperSprites that are PNG so the game should run much faster i think. Is the engine so heavy that you can't create a games that run with slower computers? Or is there some settings that i can disable somehow when packaging? Any tutorials, infos or something?

Hello Frisco,

I answered a users post about detecting the CPU and GPU of the system which you also mind find useful. I provide him with a link to some documentation that will also give you some insight on how to go about testing not only your own machines hardware capabilities, but also being able to translate this to other users playing your launched/packaged product.

"How to get GPU info / detect the power of GPU"


If you want your game to have a wide range of support for different graphic settings, then you will want to set up a system within your game to have some type of scalable graphic settings in a menu system. If this does not quite answer your question, or if you have further inquiries regarding this issue please let us know.
