are you guys SURE that Soldat is actually running at a higher framerate?  I have a feeling that the flash playback might just interfere with how MM calculates FPS in Soldat

No, I'm sure it works. Without Flash, the game plays slower, but with it, it plays smoother. I wouldn't have found it out if I hadn't recognised that Soldat was playing smoother. lol.

Though that thought did occur to me, I don't think it is.

You should probably minimize everything to your desktop when you play windowed mode. The more your OS has to display, the more it has to refresh with more information. If you do that, it should increase your FPS to around 70.

I've heard about this effect before from Shady, its pretty interesting.

Personally, my soldat plays at 60 fps with or without the flash, but I believe my graphics card or display or something is locked into 60 fps max.

...When I used to play windowed mode. I had nothing running except for soldat...not even stuff minimized.

Anyways, I'm glad this effect works for me. Thanks elbow. :D

My FPS was usually stable, somewhere in the mid 60s range. Having that open only increased it by about 10, and the human eye cannot see anything past a certain amount of frames anyways, so it makes little difference. However, if this works for those who have slower computers, than it's a very good thing. :)

Spiltcoffee is a miracle worker. :o

Wtf man, it's true! Mine ran at about 60 in an empty server, then it jumped to 80-90 when I had it running...

Just a question, where exactly did you find this?

As FliesLikeABrick mentions, this does not increase your FPS.
Most software is not perfect, and when opening that flash movie (or whatever other piece of woftware) the FPS shows the framerate of that flash movie even though you' playing Soldat. Ofcourse, the flahsh movie requires way less computing power than Soldat does, so the FPS of that flash movie is way higher. You could try making a flash movie like the one linked here, with a gigantic resolution, like 1600x1200 and have alot of high-quality jpegs slide along it. Then check your FPS in Soldat and it will be way less than without the flash movie.

This depends on so many things that I don't even know where to start and if the reasons I give are true or not, so I won't do that.

EDIT: Try opening the old mapmaker for example. It always shows 999fps for me. When I open Soldat and show my FPS, it is at 999 too, until I close it (250-300fps). Again, this will not work for everybody, probably not even half of you.

Grtz, DePhille

Kinda funny that it works.

 It's similar to the Tetris game that when you played the download speed of my torrents increased.

Not in my case. Flash movies average at about 60 fps for me, and yet I was getting a higher fps, not to mention smoother gameplay.
