> What steps will reproduce the problem? Save an actionscript. > What is the expected output? What do you see instead? When saving an actionscript with ffdec 15.0 or higher the programm needs more time to save it. But when saving an actionscript with ffdec 14.6.0 its fast. > What version of the product are you using? Is it "nightly build"? Which operating system do you have? I am using v.15.0.0 and 14.6.0, and am on Windows 10. > Please provide any additional information below. If the problem is related to a SWF file, attach it here, otherwise we can't help you. Not sure if its swf related and I also doubt its swf related.
My question is why is it slower?
We did a lot of changes between these versions. The decompilation of AS1/2 can be slower because now it does it in two passes to properly detect switches. But I don't know. You can attach sample SWF file which is notable slower now and then I can investigate futher...
I feel it may be relevant to note here that I need to resize the JPEXS windows for code and menus to properly load. It seems to be a graphical/visual error considering it will remain somewhat responsive to clicking on items in this state. I didn't notice this in v14 but I have in both v15 and v16. It will freeze whenever I try to decompile code or load new SWF files. I feel it may be necessary to clarify resize as "make window smaller than when initially opened."
Puzzlecube: That seems to be unrelated to the issue topic. Create new issue if it persists. OP Kshatriya: In nightly 2215 we improved property resolving - AS3 direct editation should be faster.
