    Is it true that Standalone Player 10 works better than 11?

    As in not much lag, and runs faster.

    Hard to say. How about you run FRAPS with the game active and see which one has higher FPS.

    Oh yeah, loader does not support flash player 10.
    We had some troublesome issues with this.

    I can't, google chrome won't let me because it isn't the latest version.

    Download the debugger version and run from that.

    10.3: http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/installers/archive/fp_10.3.183.90_archive.zip (fp_10.3.183.90_archive.zip\fp_10.3.183.90_archive\10_3_r183_90_debug/flashplayer10_3r183_90_win_sa_debug.exe)
    11.9: http://download.macromedia.com/pub/flashplayer/updaters/11/flashplayer_11_sa_debug.exe
    be sure also to download the debugger version for the newest - you don't want the difference to be caused by the browser. When running the tests, have your browser closed (as many, many, many things on the internet use flash and you know it just might make a difference)

    Thanks.

    between a couple of loader versions, there did seem to be some slow down, but i forgot which one.
    no clue what might have caused it.

    ~wouldn't be flash updating because i use the standalone player, and since i don't update that very often i would have noticed when i swapped it over.

    unless it was the loader/sdt itself being compiled for the newer flash versions, and that slows it down
