External SWFs are rendered at lower quality compared to inline ones in Flash Chat Posted June 2, 2018 To add onto this: Pawns that have nothing on them (such as stars, hats, etc... Toon pawns) have prestine quality, however once you add elements to the pawn, it deteriorates in quality. This wasn't such a big issue up until recently as retina/4k displays were a rare thing. However, that's not the case anymore, and especially with making mobile applications, this should be resolved. I assume it's something to do with how those things are loaded. Pretty sure it's loaded as a "bitmap" or something.
