A brand new game
for Windows, Linux, Mac, HTML5, 3DS Homebrew and more
4th September, 2019
Much the same as yesterday.
A bit of Plat in a Spin, and a bit of Pool.
Hopefully I can get these two done in time for their scheduled releases.
I'm still not 100% sure I can do Pool in just a few days, but since I have nothing else planned, I guess I'll be doing that!!
In Chrome, Edge, MacOS Safari and iOS Safari, the Browsercade's framerate is pretty much full speed and steady, at more or less 25/50 fps.
Over in Firefox, however, it's erratic and generally a lot slower than it oughta be, running at 20/30fps!!
It's been bugging me for a couple of weeks, so yesterday, I spent about an hour or so trying to figure out why that might be.
Ultimately, I ended up reading about other people having similar issues, and nobody really knowing quite what to do about it.
It seems that the exact timings aren't being preserved, due to something that happened when they fixed the "Meltdown" security issues.
I'm not really sure what to do about that, then, other than maybe a popup saying "Don't use this browser!!" .. Something that I used to reserve solely for Internet Explorer!
Aw well, carry on!
