Recently I opened one of my bigger projects in 3.5 beta. When I went to test the game I noticed that something was up. Collision for cannot be pushed actors would load farther down than they should (on a related note debug drawing brings the game down to 5 FPS). The first two or three times I tested my game the game would have this would graphical hic-up that I wasn't able to get footage of(it should be noted that it had no effect on gameplay and disappeared after a minute or so). Lastly when an enemy that creates an explosion on death was about to die the game would go down to less than 1 FPS.

Debug drawing performance is worse due to changes in OpenFL and will probably not improve soon.  For the other issues, can you post a sample project?

The game looks pretty big so I'll take a look at it in a few days when I'm back home and using my desktop which is way faster than the laptop I have with me now.

I checked out the game and the only problem I saw was the bat bomb enemy re-applying a tint every update which crashed the fps.

Did you by chance notice any graphical glitches?

I’ll post a video because it is kind of a noticeable issue

So I went back and played the game through again and found that the graphical  glitch was only existent in full screen mode meaning that there is something up with that

OK, but what specifically are you seeing?

I wasn't able to get any footage (for some reason every time I'd take a video or a  picture of the glitch it wouldn't occur) so I'll do the best I can describe it. Before I begin I should note that it the glitch will sometimes go away after awhile.  When the player moves (specifically when the camera does) there will be this weird "line" where anything in the line will sort of shift to the right (if that makes sense).

I haven't seen anything like that, and it sounds like it could be a hardware issue.  Are your graphics drivers updated?

I think so... I'm running the most current version of Mac OS so my drivers are updated.

What about those big FPS drops you mentioned?  What part of the game do those show up?

The FPS drop I mention was because of the bat bombs and the other FPS drop was because of debug drawing
