Any way to stop certain Flash material...

Post by marzsyndrome » Wed Nov 10, 2010 6:53 am

...from using 100% (or close to it) of my CPU resources?

I wish to play this for example:

But it seems no matter what browser I use (IE8, Firefox 3.6.10 or Opera 10.63), as I start to get into it my computer makes more noise and the game may even show frame-skipping or delays in some spots. Is it just my system not being 'ninja' enough? Here are my specs:

Intel Pentium 4 3Ghz
Windows XP SP3 Pro
ATI Radeon X600 (I think it's an X600 at least)

I believe it's a dual-core, since Task Manager shows a CPU rate of around 50 on whatever browser is running at full resources. Cheers.

that should be good enough so i guess it might be something else. i played that on an old single core amd 64 processor.
p4 never had dual cores, what you are seeing is something called hyper threading
btw thats a pretty cool game. many fun ways to die. you can even get gretel to kill hansel >:D

Well, technically, dual core P4s went by the name "Pentium D". ;)

Your system specs seem sufficient.

Have you tried toggling "Enable Hardware Acceleration" in Ad0beFlash Settings Manager?

Their site says that enabling this may cause issues with older hardware.
Worth a try.
