It's in one of the engine scripts. Maybe look at the one for graphics? I'll check later when I have a moment.

OK, I removed your script but the game is still lagging when I test play it in Steam. I think the problem might be Steam itself after all and not your script... only the Steam build lags like this, since the out-of-Steam version works normally o_O

In the "Scene_Base" script, find the method "update_basic", and add a call to "SteamUserStatsLite.instance.update" somewhere (at the beginning or end of the method is fine), and see if it helps.

I've got another report from someone, and they also say it doesn't seem to matter whether the script is present. Could you tell me the processor, OS, and graphics card of the computer you're testing your game on?

Sorry for asking this after almost a month, but Labyr...are you using the "Language File System" script, by any chance? Or which others scripts are you using? Maybe we can find the one messing with the performance...Thanks!

It turned out that the video script he was using caused problems with the Steam Overlay. The overlay times out a while after the video plays and starts spamming log writes to disk, which severely degrades performance.

Do you remember which video script was he using? I think I'm on the same boat XD Thanks!

Zeus Video Player IIRC

FWIW, you can probably ask Valve to disable the overlay and continue using your video script. The overlay doesn't work properly on VX Ace anyway.

Really? Thanks! I'll try that, I think I can disable the overlay for the game on the steamwork platform...however I want to test if it's working for me without that script before contacting Valve. XD

Thank you for this! I had an old project I wanted to release as a free game and I didn't want to deal with steam achievements and stuff. This script is great and has been stickied! I can't believe I missed this before.
