Hi there:

Sorry to hear about this. We couldn't find any lag when we were testing this, but can you let me know what kind of system you're running? Were you using a wired or wireless controller? If you unplug the controller during gameplay, does it speed back up, etc.?

Thanks,
B.

Hi again:

I responded to a similar post, and wanted you to see this too; I think I've isolated the problem, but since I can't recreate it here, can you please try the following test file and let me know if this runs appropriately for you?

I'm uploading a file to Dropbox; it should be ready to download by 4:00PM EST:

Always nice to see developer answering ^^

Sorry, didn't answer earlier for some reason but my specs are:

Windows 7
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2320 CPU @ 3.00GHz (4CPUs)
NVIDIA GeForce GT 530, 4Gb
8Gb Ram

I'm not good at these :P Let me know if I missed something..

Anyway, after reading the second topic I guess the test file has been updated to whole game? Or should I still download them and test out? The update in Steam did NOT work, it still makes the game unplayable.

It lags / fps drops only when moving or using the controller. After I stop moving and move with keyboard instead it works perfectly O.o Even if the controller is plugged in. And after that if I try to use controller again the fps drops below 0.

Thanks, Awzum. It seems that controller support in Game Maker games can cause some problems, but since we didn't see any of this while testing, we thought everything was working well.

I'm going to have to see if there's a better way to program the controller support than the way I currently have done so. In the meantime, please accept my apologies that the game isn't performing the way it should with your Xbox pad.

Hi again Awzum:

Would you mind trying out another test file? I have one ready to see if this causes less joystick lag. If you have a few minutes, please try this one out and let me know if it helps any.

Thanks for your patience.

Download test v1.3.4[dl.dropbox.com] (should be ready to download by 5:15pm EST)

'aight. Let me know when it's fixed :D

On the bright side; This means Game Maker does support Xbox controller? I was thinking about warming up my old skills and start playing around with thar program..

E: Ah, I'll test that fix.

E2: Well, now the guy doesn't move at all :P Only XABY buttons and Back works :I

Okay, thanks, Awzum. I'll have to continue to try some things out here. It may be a few days as I give this a go.

Much appreciated.

So, any news yet :P? I'd like to get to play this, but want to wait 'till I can do it with my controller :D

Did the Steam v1.3.4 release help at all (not the test file I sent you, but the actual Steam file). Some folks are saying it did.
Pyhäpuu Nov 2, 2012 @ 12:11pm 
Aww, god damnit :( It's sliiiightly better but still unplayable with controller.
Lestrade  [developer] Nov 5, 2012 @ 12:14pm 
Okay, I have earmarked another patch that I'm hoping will help more. Thanks for your patience.
Pyhäpuu Dec 25, 2012 @ 7:27am 
The problem is fixed by the way :D No idea when you did it, but I just randomly tested and no lag at all :p
