Hi Today I finished writing #1.2 technical demo of my mini engine - just like subject states :-) I post about it here, because I would like to test compatibility and hardware requirements, especially video and sound card, video drivers, DirectX version, Windows version etc. Demo is available here: clicky - it is win32 executable. I would be really gratefull, if you would run it also in windowed mode (change fullscreen to false in config.cfg) and with vsync disabled (manually in card properties) and post here number of FPS, that was printed on window border, along with you computer's CPU, RAM, video card... and maybe operating system? Also, if you will have any problems with running it, don't hesitate to write here. (if you want to stress test this demo, hold middle and right mouse buttons, and repeatedly press left button - see what I mean :-) )

Sorry, FPS are printed on window border in windowed mode, so you should...

Anyway, it's working - and that's very good :-)

Hmmm, not very great result :-/
I thought that when I'm using OpenGL for 2d graphics I don't need to bother with limiting myself to the number and quality of effects on the screen, and I won't need to optimize - seems I was too optimistic with my expectations :-/

Anyway, big thx for downloading and running my demo!


Maybe someone else will help me too...?

Looking good! I get approx 75-80fps when stressing it.

How do you do your particle systems? Particle systems are a massive fps killer if you don't get them right. I minimize dynamic allocation by allocating a particle pool when the systems are created.

Runs fine in both full screen and window mode.
I have around 120/140 fps without pressing both buttons at the same time, and 80\90 when pressing them

Hey, thx :-) but it would be very strange if with THOSE specs, you would get smaller FPS :-)

Not getting into details (I'm going out now), I do them like this: http://www.gamedev.net/reference/programming/features/extpart/ and this: http://jnr.sourceforge.net/readarticle.php?article_id=3

You can look at the implementation if you want, it's here: http://cvs.sourceforge.net/viewcvs.py/jnr/engine/Others/ParticleEngine/

Wow guys, some of you have really great computers - mine is Athlon 900 Mhz, 512RAM and Geforce4Mx, and I get about 50-55 fps when stress testing it.
