FPS testing

For questions about using Classic.

Post » Sun Mar 03, 2013 9:58 pm

I could really use some help with testing how this performs.

It does pretty badly on my crappy laptop (around 20 fps) but I reckon a proper system would have less problems.

If you can see red borders evenly around the edges, it means that my letterbox experiment is working.

Constructive criticism on the background is also welcome.

Thank you.

It's mostly between 620-640, it went down to 570 for a second when I smashed the buttons like a retard.

fx6100, gtx550, 4gb, w7 64

It looks promising, my only problem was the controls, I prefer mouse for look around, and shooting of course(maybe you could use the right mouse button to run - unless you want a retro, keyboard only game).

By the way if you load your images at runtime it will be much faster(I mean the big background).

Thanks for helping out, Pecek. The idea was actually to make it keyboard only, but I might ditch that since keyb+mouse seems a lot easier to get right.
Loading textures per layout was an accident btw.

Hmm, I didn't see the red borders evenly, but it ran smooth the whole time here (60fps)

Thanks a bunch!
About the borders: Were they uneven or just not showing?

The borders were showing, but only the left, top, and bottom side were visible.

Hmm... odd. I was sure I got them to position evenly, calculating from the screen center out.
Could I abuse your kindness further and ask you to zoom in and out using "Z" and "X" keys to see if the right border pops up?

Is a lot of the borders showing btw? (ie. are they thick or just a slither?)

Thanks, and don't apologize, Jay. :)
And thanks for posting screenshots. That is very different from what my screen shows. Back to the drawing board, I guess. At least there is no fps lag.
