I hate to say it but not many Plug-in Media projects are optimised for low end machines. We usually squeeze every bit of performance out of Flash to fill every part of the screen with crazy 3D, pixels and video!
But! We found one that works really well! And it works well for two reasons :
- It doesn’t stretch the processor (unlike our Papervision3D projects like Big and Small and Zingzillas)
- All of its interactions are via the mouse (unlike our games that are usually controlled with the cursor keys).
I reckon we could probably even squeeze a bit more speed out of it with judicious use of cacheAsBitmap, but as it is, entirely made with vectors, it runs pretty well!
