Ok, i have done some more tests now and so far it boils down to this for me:
The release version ( 188.8.131.52 ) pretty much achieves the same
performance in browser playback as in standalone playback.
So on that end there is a (big) improvement when comparing the old
release player and the new one. That is great.
On the other side the beta player ( 9,0,64,0 ) still achieved way better
performance than the release player now does for me.
To verify this i tried this game here:
(still in alpha and not even a preloader in there yet, so you´ll have to
wait till it loads, btw i used Ralph Hauwert´s Bump Demo as base for
mine, thanks for that :-) )
on firefox with the latest beta player. It achieved around 100 fps there.
Then i installed the release player in firefox and now it only achieves
around 63 fps, also with more drops way below.
Can anyone with a beta player still installed test this, then install
the release player and compare the fps?
I mean its still a great step that the player achieves pretty much the
same fps in browser playback as in standalone playback but yeah, i
wonder why there´s a loss of over 35 fps from beta player to release player.
