Accurate Timer Using Timekeeper Class

Recommended Posts

Hi, does anyone have any experience with creating an accurate timer in AS3?

I have used the Timer class and also setInterval in conjunction with my TweenMax project but none are very accurate.


I have been reading about the Timekeeper class, but don't know exactly how to use it.

When you say "none are very accurate", could you describe what you mean? Are you saying that you need something to get called at a particular interval, but when the Flash Player bogs down due to other processing, sometimes those intervals widen?


Also, could you explain WHY you need more accuracy? I'm a little concerned that you might be heading down a road that is ultimately very wasteful or pointless - if you need to check timing accurately, you shouldn't be relying on a specific interval anyway. It's much better to use something like getTimer() and compare it to a value you recorded when you started.
