View Full Version : [AS2] what is a good frame rate for a game?

I am writing a break out or Arkanoid style game, and I am wondering....what would be a good frame rate for the movie? would 100 be too much? I want the game to be smooth on all types of PC's, and I am currently running an Intel Core Duo 2.12 Pentium M (making it hard to tell the difference between 50 and 100);

the IDEAL framerate is 60. but you can get away with 30...

i thought 31 is optimal for flash8 ?

31 frames/sec? that sounds somewhat odd...where did u read that?...I only ask because it's such a wierd number :P...

31 is what i use- on a mac in a browser, there's a modulo-esque frame dropoff. 26 fps will run ~25. but so will 29 & 30. 31 drops down to 30 and you'll get around 30 on a pc.

cool...ill stick with 31, since it doesnt seem much different (visually) from 30 (n ill take your word on the Mac performance)...
