SDL + (2 by 2) TileMap = SLOW? I'm making a game where the player can dig tunnels through dirt. I've got the multi-layered level drawn without slowdown, but now that I've added a 2x2 tile tunnel map on top of the rest of the level, the game runs very slowly. A 16 X 16 tile tu...

OpenGL: Drawing a Texture onto Another Texture I just switched from rendering with SDL to rendering with OpenGL and using SDL for creating the window. With SDL I could call SDL_BlitSurface(source, clip region, destination, position) and blit one surface onto another. Is this possible wi...

[SOLVED] Issues With Visual Studio and Project Items When I started my current project, I used Windows and Visual Studio, but then I started using Ubuntu almost exclusively.

Hidden Cosmos: Play My Game & Critique My Code I finished the Dreamcast game I've been working on for the past month called, Hidden Cosmos. It's similar to Galaga but with a story and four player multiplayer. If you have a Dreamcast and Linux, you can burn the game with cdrtools (just don't...

PowerVR: Garbage Being Shown Platform: Dreamcast I've been using pvr to load my images. This aspect of the game has been working fine up until the time I started using big images (1024 X 512). Firstly, I'd like to know if my drawImage function is correct. In the function, th...

Poll Results [3.3.10 - 3.22.10] I used to never use CAPS LOCK and thought it should be removed. Of course, there was a time when I didn't use other keys/combinations like ctrl+right, or home then shift+end. Nowadays, I use as many keys/combinations as possible, including caps lock....

Collecting Games I'm somewhat of a collector of PlayStation RPGs (psx 2 & 3), and I'd probably collect SNES RPGs if so many of them hadn't been remade for other systems. I hear the DS is pretty good for RPGs as well, but I probably wouldn't buy or get into it due to...

SDL + (2 by 2) TileMap = SLOW? For those of you who search this post and are in need of a solution, I finally figured out a way to speed the game up. SDL_FillRect works great for me. All I needed was solid rectangles anyway. Note: I switched back to SDL from OpenGL to try this...

OpenGL: Drawing a Texture onto Another Texture I'm working on a game that allows the player to dig through dirt. I want to store the tunnels on a surface that's bigger than the width and height of the screen. Then, every frame, I want to render that surface to the screen (only what fits...

SDL + (2 by 2) TileMap = SLOW? Quote:Original post by evillive2 Also - be aware that immediate mode is being deprecated in future versions of OpenGL (glBegin/glEnd) so some of the OpenGL enthusiasts may point you towards vertex buffer objects (VBOs) and shaders for this type of t...

SDL + (2 by 2) TileMap = SLOW? Quote:Original post by evillive2 Yes - generate the dirt surface once at load time and then apply that surface each frame. Will this take up a lot of memory? Maybe I should apply the entire map to the surface at the beginning of a level, since...

SDL + (2 by 2) TileMap = SLOW? Quote:Original post by evillive2 My suggestion is instead of drawing a bunch of tiles for dirt or empty space - render the dirt to a surface once at the beginning of a level. Are you saying to render the dirt to a surface other than the screen...

[SOLVED] Issues With Visual Studio and Project Items On a hunch, I renamed the file to RectangleF.h and the struct RectangleF, and now it works!
