Title: [WINDOZE] Basic Movement Demo
Post by: DFortun81 on April 09, 2008, 08:18:14 AM
Joshedit:
Big people that feel important have began using this topic against me, which is where I draw the line.

This thing Dylan released, has nothing to do with the GL version. Stop calling my code slow. Stop blaming me. This is Dylan's code entirely; it uses nothing but WinApi, and you all know Windows blows.

Not a line of this code exists in any release so far, and not many will likely exist in versions to come.

Thank you.

This sample shows Keyboard Detection and Sprite Animation. It was made using the ENIGMA Engine (Windoze Version 0.6).

PS: Yes, I know it doesn't work in Linux.... Or at least I don't think it does. O.o

The ENIGMA one is slower.

The ENIGMA one is slower.
...considering it uses 1/5 of the memory and practically no cpu power.

Holy crap the Enigma ones lags. Like hell. I don't know how much system resources it uses, but it goes about 1/5th the speed.

the ENIGMA one is faster for me. Maybe your people's graphics cards just suck.

I have a radeon x1300 and the enigma one's CPU and memory use is a lot lower.

yeah, it lags really really bad for me.

I've got a GeForce 8600 GTS and I experience no lag at all. I'll see what I can do to lessen the strain for you all though.

EDIT: I tried running it on my laptop, no lag at all. Although I have a theory... Do any of you that experience lag have duel/quad core CPUs?

I have an extremely shitty computer. Celeron 1.1 GHz, 256 MB RAM, 32 MB onboard video memory. But GM still goes faster than Enigma, might be DirectX related though. Currently Enigma uses OpenGL, correct? Often OGL runs faster than DX on my computer, but it all depends on the app.

 ??? I'm not sure if it is lag, but the sprites movements are slow, sort of bumpy, I don't think it is lag, I just think the speed of the movement is too low in pixels, I don't have gm, so I'm not sure about a comparance....?

Hehe, I think I found it. I was drawing the background with tiles rather than a single, tiled background image. (4-5 FPS faster with an average of 60 FPS.) I will release an updated version for you all to test once I've worked out some bugs in the Events system I recently integrated.

Thanks for the reports, guys.

Celeron 1.1 GHz. You two have no right to complain. Anyway, an AMD CPU with 2 GHz is better than a Pentium with 2.8 GHz.

Windoze-only version is canceled until I get more experienced with DirectX. Obviously, this wont be until I have finished college since that's why I'm in college in the first place, but mark my words: I will return.

DF81 out.

I played this, the .exe and the .gm6. I experienced no difference between the two. My comp specs are at this site:

But I have a different sound card now (not that it matters) and my graphics card is a 256mb Radeon 9200? Or 9600, I don't remember.
