          there's something in your swf that's causing the problem but it's not possible to pinpoint the problem with the information you supplied.


          with as2, in general, if you see performance problems after some time it means you are creating more and more objects or you have some kind of loop (like setInterval) problem.

            yes actually am creating 4 objects every 5 seconds (enemy) and 3 objects every 0.25 seconds (bullets) and every time we kill an enemy i create 10 to 40 objects (particle system), but i remove them all, so in general i will be with 100 objects (MAX)  at the stage in the same time,

            but i think that am going to start learning AS3 and remake the game.

            thank you for your help
