The Binding of Isaac with Steam Overlay and Hardware acceleration.

After a day of work, trying to find a way to get this game to run better, I finally got it to work, using flash 11 and hardware acceleration: Can take screenshots with f12

I'm not sure if the achievements still work, probably not, and I don't think I can release this cause it requires dumping the raw .swf file and running it with flash 11 debugger (then create a projector file named Isaac.exe), I'm sure some clever people can find out how on their own.

Edit: forgot to add, if I can make this game run better and with steam overlay in a day, why does this game still have no support for this?

This game need Steam Overlay and Steam Cloud, I ask to the dev why does the game don't have steam overlay, he said he don't know how to put it on the game since it is a flash game.

Try to talk with him on twitter or send him a email

I'll try to email him, though the overlay problem was simply fixed by using Flash 11

The slowdown is so annoying and I have a good pc I really hope for hardware acceleration if that helps.

Nice job man. Too bad this can't help any of us out though

This is the worst running game I own.

Same for me, I'll try testing to see if it runs on my laptop now, I'm not sure if the hardware acceleration makes any difference, but it does make Steam Overlay work like a charm though .

Edit: The hardware acceleration doesn't seem to speed up the game, but at least I can take screenshots this way.

you definitely need to get in touch with ed about this.
I'm a flash coder myself, but not expert enough to understand what you're doing i guess. I did look up Flash 11 and saw that it had hardware acceleration support though, so i was wondering why TBOI was still running slow after upgrading.

I would definately try to get the developers attention on this. At least for the screenshots/overlay. Everyone wants to show their end-game Isaac off.

Well, Edmund's a pretty cool guy (he maeks SMB and doesn't afraid of anything) and I think he'll accept any such advice, esp if it adds much needed features to his game ;P

as much as i want the expansion, i think a fix to these issues is probably the most important thing at the moment.

If you've already done the work to get it to run under Flash 11, I'm sure Ed and Florian would be more than happy to implement it. Ed's said in the past that if someone wants to take the time to recode the whole game in something other than flash, he's more than happy to let them.
