    An good stable frame rate is 60fps. It might dip below that if a lot is happening. Depending on the type of the game, this might or might not be a problem.

    Images should be 2x the size of the actor max, anything above that and you are likely wasting memory (which will slow the game down if there is a lot going on).

    Typically game slow downs come more from how the code/behaviors of your game are set up than the images that are used. As long as images are kept to the recommended sizes that @pHghost mentions above.

    i have one ask. if i make actor 1 . in this actor i make copy this actor to 20 copy
    i open this actor from revert and i make another rule.thats good for game or bad ?

    If the size of the actor is 256x256, then a texture size of 512x512 is perfect.

    The 1024x768 will take as much memory as 1024x1024. On modern devices that is absolutely fine -- I sometimes use 2048x2048 images. Always do the minimum necessary. Always depends on how many such actors you have as well.

    @iraqiraq There are many tips and guidelines about the questions you have in the GameSalad Cookbook. For example Chapter 7 explains images and sizes.

    It is easy to find. Look under "Help" at the top of this page, then go to "Cookbook." While you are there you might find the Tutorials helpful for learning the basics.

    I don't uderstand what you mean.

    You can have hundreds of actors and you will be OK. You can add rules later and it is fine.

    400kb is not much.
