    I Googled to see if their's a 32 bit version of Waterfox and found one supplied by Softonic, but I'm thinking that might be spam, their's no 32 bit version on Waterfox's site.

    I wouldn't run it . Mine sort of worked . too many good 32 bits to choose from anyway .

    ZioMio:
    Will a 64bit browser operate on a 32 bit computer?

    just uninstall all the extras after installing the softonic

    A 32bit browser will run on a 64 bit computer, but not the reverse

    I scored "Awesome" with IE 10 and W7 64 bit...but the game animations are still jerky...not to even mention how bad the swing meter is now.

    I miss my XP! ;-)

    I don't think this program is really that good at determining how well your PC runs flash games. This is why i feel this way. I tested my Iphone 4s with Puffin browser active on it.

    My scores? All of them were awesome and infinity. But with Puffin I can't even play because of the meter stutters.

    Try a good 64 bit browser, like Pale Moon 64 or a better 32 bit browser like Comodo Dragon.

    Joe, I'm not sure if the program was written to test on an Iphone o/s or Puffin browser.  It was written in 2008.  And infinity, I see it reported on other tests too, looks like a default value when the results can't be interpreted.

    Flash benchmark tests are all totally useless where this game is concerned.

    Shows absolutely nothing where your own performance with respect to this game, none. 

    If you want to analyze your Flash performance at all, download and run Scout on a second monitor while playing the game. Give you a somewhat clearer idea of some aspects of what's going on when you play.

    Totally useless?  Shows absolutely nothing?

    Nothing here folks but hyperbolic opinion without any supporting facts.

    Here's some facts as to why this test is useful where the game is concerned.

    WGT animates its meter using its game client Flash programming.

    The benchmark test measures how well your computer displays animations produced from Flash programs. 

    The test gives your computer's average Frames Per Second (FPS) under progressively more intense, complex animations, from Lite animation to Heavy animations.    The more FPS your computer can generate, the better the animations look on your screen. 

    I've shown in this thread  that WGT animates its meter at a minimum of 60 FPS.  (I say minimum because my monitor(as most are) is limited to 60 FPS by the monitor's refresh rate.)

    I categorize WGT's skinny little meter animation as a Lite load on our system's graphics capabilities.

    So if your benchmark Lite animation test result is 60 FPS or close to it, your meter should be decent.  That's useful info on our system.  (Note the Lite benchmark test uses a LOW setting for Flash quality.  Check your WGT game settings.)

    The benchmark test is also useful to fine tune our systems. We can see which browser or which flash version runs best on our system.  We can even test, for example, the affect of having another WGT browser window open or another application running while running the benchmark test.

    Maybe dedBunny could provide his facts to backup his opinion?  Perhaps some screenshots from the Scout program he touts with explanations of what its showing?
