optimisation question - one object throught two layouts

This forum is currently in read-only mode.
  • I want to use the same object in two layouts, but I don't want to mark it global (because it would appear in third layout), so the question is, will the object consume two times the memory when exporting to exe / placing textures in vram if I load textures for both layouts earlier?

  • If it's the same object type, it won't use any more memory. Object images are global to the application per object type, no matter how many of them there are and which layouts they're in.

  • even if it isn't marked as global? great

    and now for something completely different, in everything angle-related (i.e. action - set angle) I can see "0 - 360" expression. well, 360 == 0. just a quick thought

    oh, before I forget. it may be a total noob question, but, when changing sampling type from "linear" to "point" (app properties), does it somehow affect (speeds up) rendering? does it have to do with hardware / software rendering? or am I just making this up?

  • You can have fractions of a degree, so you can have 0.1 or 359.9.

    wow, didn't think of that this way

    Sometimes, but I think modern graphics cards are so good at linear filtering there might not be a difference. You can always see for yourself comparing each mode with an unlimited framerate.
