So I noticed adobe released a new version of Flash recently, and they’ve added a special “constrained mode” to Stage3D that allows for most graphic cards past 2006! So, since I did a bit of a test before to see how available it was to people, I’d like to do it again.
Make sure you have flash version 11.4 (you can download it here), then click this link and scroll down to the little flash movie at the bottom. It should say something like “your gpu supports Stage3D in Constrained profile but not Baseline profile” if it’s running in constrained mode.
I’m thinking I’ll try converting my tile system over to this and see what kind of speed boost I can get. It could be impressive, and since the GPU support is much more tolerant now, it should run for most people.
