Additional Comments
Expander triangle

Use the lowResolutionTimers property to improve performance on Windows systems.

Value:

The lowResolutionTimers is true or false.

By default, the lowResolutionTimers property is set to false.

Comments:

If the lowResolutionTimers property is set to true, timing intervals are measured with the operating system's WM_TIMER messages. If the lowResolutionTimers is false, timing intervals are measured with the high-precision multimedia timers.

The high-precision timers are sometimes unreliable, causing delays in the action of the move and wait commands. You can fix these symptoms by setting the lowResolutionTimers to true. However, using the WM_TIMER messages may cause jerkiness in the action of the move command.

The setting of this property has no effect on Mac OS and Unix systems.
