Android performance issue

Android performance issue
0.0 0


Hi all,

I found many developers reported Android performance issue on Android, such as this ticket. But many tickets are outdated or did not provide a method to reproduce it. So i created an issue here to collect needed informations and try to fix it.

You are appreciated if you can add a comment there with needed information:

  • cocos2d-x version
  • the Android device information
    • Android OS version
    • device type
  • how to reproduce the performance issue


Cocos2d-x and poor updates!


Run cpp-tests on Xiaomi4 with Android 6.0.1, its resolution is 1920*1080. Its FPS is 59-60, not performance issue.


I’ve left a comment on GitHub, but I’ll post it here too:

I have the performance issues on my game and it appears to be something to do with SimpleAudioEngine?

My game makes a sound every time you tap the screen. When tapping the screen on an Android 6 device, the game stutters quite badly. I found that disabling the sound effects (but leaving the background music playing) stops all stuttering and the game runs at a smooth 60fps.

Cocos2D-X 3.10
Android 6.0
Device: Elephone P9000

The game works fine on my Android 5.1 Amazon Fire tablet, which is a much lower spec device.


Thanks @KentuckyFriedKermit.


Android rendering performance issue is fixed in v3.12. Android audio performance issue is fixed in Would you please take a try and give some feedback? Thanks.


Hello guys,

I’m facing an issue with blurry pixels, either I use :

The images (all the images) of my android app are blurry, here’s a comparison between mine and one from Play Store.
My App (BLURRY).

I have used same graphics to show you the difference, I won’t use them on my official APP (I redesigned all of them myself)


cocos2d-x set 3D projection by default, so all your sprites scaled a bit with perspective matrix, try to set 2D projection:


@anglevet yep, cocos2d-x uses perspective projection by default, but the default one should have the same effect as 2d projection if the z value is 0.


My game crash randomly in android. After I analysed the dump message, I
found a strange log.Before crashed the function WebPSafeCalloc was called.It’s strange because I dont have any webp format image and I found that the function WebPSafeCalloc was defiended in marmalade which I never used. Here is the dump message.
version :cocos2d-x 2.2.3

Sorry, v2.2.3 is a too old version. We don’t have resource to support it.


"Android rendering performance issue is fixed in v3.12."
How can I get the details ,and How can I update my project to this version? from 3.11.

And I found another Android performance issue:
Most of Android phone has a HD resolution screen(eg 1080p),but the GPU is so bad.
As a 3-D game,it is very hard to running @60fps @1080p.And we need not at all.
I hope to rendering with Just 720p or any other size .
“setDesignResolutionSize” is useless for this problem.
Sorry about my poor English ,Hope you can see what i mean…
In CN cocos forum, No one reply me about this


I had solved this problem, :wink: see here (CN)


is error! help me!thinks
