Having FPS issues or 'keylag'?

Hi there!

Having FPS issues? Trying to control your snake but it feels heavy and uncontrollable? Try the Flash Projector. Browsers such as Chrome, Firefox and Opera are moving away from Flash Player which is suitable for playing CF2. Some players have given good feedback about the performance of the Flash Projector, so give it a try and let us know how you go.

To use Flash Projector, open the software and click "File" and "Open" and then type this link: http://curvefever.com/CF_Preloader.swf. This is case sensitive. CF2 should load and you can play as normal.

Best regards,
Tranquility.

Flash Projector is nicer and more consistent than all browsers for me at the moment. Although the snake can get choppy and a bit out of control during games, it's still favorable over anything else. I find that I can full camp tighter. However half camps seem a bit difficult which I found weird, maybe because I get the illusion that my snake is moving faster compared to what I am used to on browsers. For example, when maxthon is running smooth, it gives off the illusion of a slow snake which I love for half camping. I also found that in Flash Projector I can look around the map a bit more to find ways and still have an idea of where my snake head is. When using chrome for example you can't take your eyes off the head of the snake because you don't have much control over it. Other players out there, give it a try and let us know what you think!

You touched on one of the annoying aspects of Projector. It doesn't handle the heavier powerups very well, nor does it handle friend requests very well. The report function not working is also a drawback. But performance wise there's nothing can beat it for me.

I use it since years and can share some personal experience about it. It's the best way to play the game (Maxthon would be better if there wouldn't be these random keylags), but only if you restart the application and reload CF with it several times. The game isn't smooth if you start the Projector once and load CF, at least I need to do this like five or more times consecutively until I can play smooth. I have no idea why.

It's impossible for me to play on Projector.. Snake is going 2 seconds faster, then slower... I restarted the application so many times and it's still the same.. I guess I have to buy a computer because on every browser I have freezes and Projector is even worser..

I tried this, as I tried many other things but nothing makes the game work perfectly.

I tried with everything, and used many programs to make my computer faster but it seems impossible to me to have 0 keylags in 1 game :/ This Projector works really bad on my pc and i dont know why, if I open a video on youtube it works a little better but still not enough to make the game smooth :(  #RipOldPug

I've used it on my Mac. The only difference I can notice from the procedure in the topic post is that you enter the link in File > Open Location instead of File > Open File.
