Removing Assets Question

Recommended Posts

@Ninjadoodle

Good question!

Asset will stay in memory as long as there is reference to it. Changing scene will usually remove all references, so in most situations yes it will stay in memory until you leave scene.

game.createScene('Main', {
    init: function() {
        this.sprite = new game.Sprite('panda.png');
        this.sprite.addTo(this.stage);
    },
    
    mousedown: function() {
        game.removeAsset('panda.png');
        
        // panda.png would still be rendered
        // because there is reference to the texture at
        // this.sprite.texture
    },
    
    mouseup: function() {
        this.sprite.remove(); // Remove from stage
        this.sprite = null; // Remove reference
        
        // This would now throw error
        var sprite = new game.Sprite('panda.png');
        sprite.addTo(this.stage);
    }
});
