Benchmark test: please look at this
« on: February 05, 2010, 23:15:21 »
So, if anyone remembers Flipping, it's getting a graphical revamp.

Download this and unzip it into your KS Worlds directory (can't compress levels into .bins right now, sorry).

"Play" it (there's not really anything to play), and post in this thread whether or not you experience any slowdown, both in the first "room" and the second, along with your processor speed, RAM, graphics card, and operating system.  The first room has a moderate amount of custom objects, the second has a large amount including animated alpha transparency.

Basically, I need to know whether to make a "lo-fi" version without all these custom objects - it represents more work than you might think, so I only want to do it if there are people who wouldn't be able to play the regular version.

No slowdown for me.

Laptop computer
CPU Speed: 2.00 GHz
Memory: 3GB RAM (DDR2)
Graphics: "Mobile Intel(R) 4 Series Express Chipset Family" (with 1293MB on-board memory)
Operating System: Windows 7 Home Premium (x32)

There are two other setups I can test, and if and when I do, I'll add them to this post.  One of the test subjects is the same computer but in Ubuntu (assuming I can get KS to run in Linux), and the other possible test subject is a pretty old computer (384MB RAM, a bad processor, and a circa-2002 GPU that can't handle Windows 7).

My old Laptop:
WinXP SP3
Intel Pentium M 1.7GHz
248 MB RAM
64 MB video RAM
DirectX 9

No problems. The only lag I've ever experienced is at the moment a new song loads. I tried that with your demo, and it still ran beautifully. Looks great by the way.

To check your hardware with details I suggest to download Everest :)

Thanks! I'll give it a try.
Also, the correct spelling is "unnoticeable" :)

I get 3 screens. In none of them I experience lag, but I do experience a slower switch to next screen moment.

The first time I tried this, it kind of went weird as it somehow went to the 3rd screen right away. That looked just wrong. But no slow down for me.

I'm running an Athlon 64 X2 5600+ with ATI Radeon HD5750 (I also play Modern Warfare 2 on high settings with no lag, so my system is very powerfull) 2 gb mem, win7

I said "room" and not "screen" in the hope that I could avoid confusion; the first two screens are the first room, and the second two screens would be the second room if there weren't only one screen because it's only there as a test :P
