IAN M or whoever, please delete this thread, as it is not needed and makes my code look bad. the source button is chopping my code in half and i am most annoyed.!!!!!!!

@7arvi5, oooooohhhhhh, nasty. LOL.

only joking, There are just too many people on this forum for them all to get a mention when trying to keep the code as small as possible. when I release my BIG demo, i'll get in as many mentions and greetz as poss. in fact, i'll start writing it now, it won't be a 20 liner though, it'll be a many hundred liner with a shed load of media. and you'll get a mention for being so kind as to post in one of my threads.

regards, geecee3.

coz the objects are moving in 3d space, and if you were to move the camera around you could view the scroller from any direction. also the fact that i used the make object cube command and the texture object command, i would have thought that it would have been obvious.

hey,

after geecee3 posted, that the text actually is 3d i played around to find out, how DBpro works...
I guess I understood and added some modification, even if it is not in 11 lines anymore, but I had to understand first

thanks,
P!

it's not my fault

you can't tell it's 3d because it's going so fast because you have the sync rate set to 0.

set sync rate to 60 and it's actually readable

OK enough of that damn DBP fanboy banner. i'm NOT a DBP fanboy in any way. i haven't used DBP in over a year, and i don't really plan on using it again.

hello DrakeX,

the reason, for the sync rate 0 in all of my stuff, is because it all falls to bits if i use a sync rate of 60. the reason for this is.. the frame rate is far more consistant if you let the program draw the graphics as fast as possible, but lock the refresh of your graphics card in it's properties. doing this gives the most fluid frame rates on most of the systems i have tested code on. everything for me runs at a constant 60 FPS unless it's overloaded with objects and effects. trust me, your video card can handle video timings better than DBP ever could. it's the only way i have found to get a glitch free, consistant frame rate. even with classic.

regards, geecee3.

i have the vertical sync set to "always on" in my video card's properties, and it still runs insanely fast..

however, if i choose "fullscreen exclusive", it runs (as expected) at a maximum of 60FPS. i say "as expected" as i don't believe it's possible to exceed the refresh rate in fullscreen mode.

strangely, the framerate is a lot smoother in FSE than in FSW, even if they're both running at 60FPS. i don't have this problem in windowed mode when i program in directx using C++.. i wonder what method they use to double-buffer / wait for vblank in DBP?
