how slow is full screen canvas on your machine

New releases and general discussions.

Post » Wed Jun 23, 2010 3:54 pm

Anyone who has a free moment, can you do a quick expirement for me?
Take any current construct project and turn on the fps display.
edit: the higher the resolution the better

See how many fps you get
Then add a canvas that takes up the whole screen and gets a sprite pasted to it every tick
And post the before and after fps here along with your pc specs, and what resolution it was running at

Considering using it for an effect in my game and I know full screen canvases kill some machines, trying to figure out if its the majority, or the minority, and at least if it works fine with most peopl with semidecent gaming pcs

I tried it out and didn't find much difference besides vram usage (although, I did just get a brand new Nvidia card today :P ).

Before: 85fps, 0.06mb vram

After: 85fps, 2.14mb vram

Specs:
Cpu - Intel P4 2.8Ghz
Graphics Card - XFX Nvidia Geforce 210 (512mb)

800x600 windowed (I assumed full screen meant stretched across the whole window)
