In Topic: Good way to design a content system (add & remove data)

28 July 2015 - 01:03 PM

that strongly depends why you'd want to remove it. why is the content removed although objects are still referencing it? what should happen if you use an object that references content that has been removed?

removing content is easy ;)
making everything else still work is the challenge and it starts by defining what behavior you! want.

could you please run a profiler and show us the output?
that's more likely leading to an improvement than your guesses and our guesses based on your guesses;)

are you running that one always?
	HR(m_pDevice->ColorFill(m_pTextureSurface, NULL, D3DCOLOR_ARGB(0xFF, 0, 0, 0)));
	HR(m_pDevice->StretchRect(m_pOffsceenSurface, NULL, m_pTextureSurface, NULL, D3DTEXF_LINEAR));
also, try 16bit/halfs and try point instead of linear (some hardware doesn't support it). and enable the D3D debug runtime, it will show warnings/errors.

and also try PIX or intels tool ( https://software.intel.com/en-us/gpa ) and step through the scene and check where reality diverges from your expectations ;)
