[SDL] Perfomance problem with SDL+OpenGL

Hey, I don't know if this helps, but you can try running the program without calling SDL_Flip() (or whatever screen update function you're using, whether for SDL or OpenGL) and check the fps and compare this to the fps without the stuff you put in (drawing routine?) and without SDL_Flip(). This will avoid SDL_Flip()'s vsync at least. You won't be able to see what's happening, of course, so output the fps to a text file.

Thx for all guys, I'd just though that more frame rate (more than vertical refresh) would be better! :rolleyes:
So, theres no trouble with getting that fps...

For a simplistic algorithm this can be the case. But if the input processing properly accounts for the possability for a 'button' being pressed and released during a frame, 20-30 frames/second can be suprisingly responsive. I agree that there's no point in a frame rate faster than vertical refresh. _______________________________________________SDL mailing listSDL at libsdl.orghttp://www.libsdl.org/mailman/listinfo/sdl -- Phantom LordCaelis Studios ---> From Gods Hands To Yours
