Flash Preload Profiler
In the last few weeks I started to use more and more the mm.cfg feature « preloadSWF »
This enables you to start a SWF before any SWF launched by FlashPlayer and have much information on the launched SWF. It also enables you to “hook” on the launched SWF and manipulate it’s display list.
I then decided to try making my own profiler for flash in a way that it could be started for any web site without having an interface too invasive. FlashPreloadProfiler is born.
FlashPreloadProfiler is an open source multi-purpose profiler designed to help productivity and stability during development by exposing “under the hood” representation of any flash scene.
The main goal is to help expose and diagnose problems before they get too big.
It enables developers, artists, designer or testers to see what sometimes “cannot be seen” such as:
- How many sprites are contained in the scene and may be one over the others
- Instanciation, AddedToStage, RemovedFromStage, Garbage Collection
