Hiya,

 

I'm guessing you used a fork of the Chromium project's browser to play the game, 

 

there was a change made to the browsers rendering engine that forced the game to play in software rendered mode instead of hardware acceleration.

 

this caused horrible lag during gameplay.

 

it started with Facebook Gameroom, a chromium based mini browser, then Google Chrome and then Opera, Vivaldi and finally Yandex, all forks of the Chromium project,

 

this has happened step by step over 2018 forcing players to switch browsers to maintain smooth gameplay, most ending up using Firefox, then just before Christmas even Firefox became problematic for users with Windows 10.

 

Adobe have said they would support Flash until the end of 2020, see their corporate statement here from mid 2017,

well Google seems to have used it's market dominance, some might call it  their increasing monopoly, of the internet to bring about the EOL (end of life) of Flash prematurely,

 

Google introduced forced updates to their browser and Microsoft has done the same with Windows 10,

 

I imagine these developments have forced Con to accelerate his development of the next generation of the game,

 

the stage seems set and we are currently awaiting an announcement,

it's still perfectly possible to play tls:dz just as smoothly as it ever was by using non mainstream or older versions of browsers, this is easier if you've not handicapped yourself with Microsoft's abomination Windows 10

 

I've heard good reports of the new Waterfox 64-bit browser though I've yet to try it myself,

there are other options posted on the forum,

I continue to play tls:dz, as do many others, with a modicum of effort and ingenuity and the use of the above links you should be able to as well,

 

I'm patiently waiting for Con to reach a point where he can reveal his new creation,

 

I suggest you take the comments of the more hysterical members of the gaming community with a pinch of salt,

 

may I draw your attention to the poem by Rudyard Kipling,  "If"

Matt i love the part of you saying that firefox is not running so smoothly anymore,

 

Well i have to disagree at that yes all chromium based browsers dont work anymore of software rendering. But i think its on the end of adobe doing this making flash unreasonable to run since if i run a game with good graphics (imo) gears of war 4 you have way less ram and cpu usage then if i run a flash game from 2012. i think the use of flash is being the issue here and partly the browsers. maybe firefox is like no adobe i still want to use flash and adobe i thinking well we make the next edition of flash even harder to process. i remember that i used to play dz in 2012 on a windows vista pc with a crap gpu pcu and 2gigs of ram and it ran perfectly on that. now im using a msi with 16 gigs of ram a 1070 gpu 3,0ghz i5 and firefox installed on a ssd and still i have lag spikes

 

this is just a boycot from adobe forcing browsers to cut support, thats maybe the reason new browsers run perfect at start but decays over time just like Yandex which i agree ran perfectly till recently

 

The flash era is over sadly it still has many good memories of me playing flash games on elementary school what i would reconmend to con is run this game on a old version of flash instead of a new one i think it will have much more effect

 

OR move to a private client move all accounts to one server and let us login by launcher since sites like armor games, facebook and Kong are corrupt and sell user data anyways

I see.. I guess Con is very busy lately creating a new engine (Standalone game?) to support his game. But based on that gif, it doesnt look like Dead Zone at all as it seems solo play in topdown formula. I will miss TLS:DZ if it's not coming as standalone game.
