You might want to restart your computer, or run a virus scan.
The lag would be caused either by your internet connection (not likely because it's conditional) or your computer has a lot of other things going on.

It has been happening for a while now, so i don't think restarting my computer will help. Also my computer runs regular virus scans automatically, so i don't think it's that either. My internet connection is always reliable, and fast as i am at uni, so it isn't that. As regards to my computer having lots of other things going on, i am usually playing fantastic contraption on its own, without running other programs, so i'm not sure about it being that.

I think the problem is something to do with the adverts next to the game. As it seems my browser is always trying to load an ad, also once i have navigated away from the site, i still get fantasticcontraption/AdTopHome.html or something similartrying to load (but obviously doesn't - it just appears at the bottom loading bar).

Any other ideas????

If you purchase the game, it removes the ads. :)

lol, ok i might buy anyway, i'll just have to keep my contraptions using not that many pieces :-) But i am only playing on this game because i am putting off my uni work, so maybe not right now. Ironically it was one of my lecturers who introduced me to the game!

LOL, no i wasn't, i didn't even know there was an option. THANKS, i just have to use bad graphics if the piece count gets too high. Well that made me look stupid :-) why didn't one of the other guys suggest that, instead of the complicated things :-)

Thanks Again - I suppose i will have to buy the game now i have no excuse not to :-) but must work first....grrrr

Probably because we have all played with simple graphics for so long, that we forgot the option exists. :)

Any chance of a redesigned 'win' screen? It's awful when it covers up what you're looking at (and it's bad for certain comps).
My suggestion-have it pop-up on the right hand side of the screen but much smaller: just the word 'win' will do and the url. the more discreet the better.

*edit* might as well ditch the 'nice' graphics too as it only slows things down.

When will this update be added to the game? The Fantastic Contest Banner has been taunting me for months!
