Hi... I''ve been working on my graphics engine and I can''t get it to run very fast at all... Now, I think this could be because I''m using triangle lists and not strips. I *could* rewrite the thing to use strips. Would this improve speed noticeably? It''s quite some work and I only want to do it if it''s necessary. I could have posted this in the isometric board (it''s an isometric engine) but this here gets far more hits thanks - JQ pmjordan@gmx.at lead programmer, PWC Software

well.. once i''ve read that stripes would be faster (at least for
GeForce cards). but i neither know where i''ve read it and how reliable this info is..

But are you sure it makes much sence to use stripes ?

how would you convert a triangle-list describing a cube into stripes ? (1 stripe is impossible i think)

i think, that this algo is as speed improving your engine as a sleep (10) in the innerst loop would be ;-)

but if your object is kinda cool-to-be-ported-to-a-stripe (like landscape-stuff) it would maybe speed up your code..

and how would you implement HSR with stripes ?

so long
