Re: Is RapaGUI slower on Windows 10 than on other platforms?

Nitpickers :lol: Well, in the end it's just about time economics. To turn your post into an example that I can run and try here I probably need at least 10 minutes. That of course decreases my motivation to just go and give it a try. The ideal MCVE is something that can be copied and pasted directl...

Re: Planamarama best performance Questions

I save all graphics-data as 8bit iff-files with the same shared palette. Yes, that's the right approach for quicker drawing with Plananarama 2.0. You also need to configure your display to use that palette then by doing something like: @DISPLAY {Palette = <your palette>} Then Plananarama will never...

Re: OnMusicEnd

Alternatively, if you want to use "OnMusicEnd" you must make sure that the music is not closed before "OnMusicEnd" has been handled because that's what's causing the crash.

Re: OnMusicEnd

Doesn't crash here anymore with the fix mentioned here so I consider this fixed. Since the Wait() workaround doesn't seem to be stable, you should just avoid using "OnMusicEnd" to work around the issue. You could use IsMusicPlaying() instead.

Re: Planamarama best performance Questions

- Whats the fastest Method for AGA-Output? (Sprites, Brushes, Double-Buffering..etc?) You need to know that Plananarama currently needs to convert all graphics from true colour to 8-bit planar first before it is able to draw them. That obviously is slow as hell. That's why Plananarama caches conver...

It does not fullfill "C" in MCVE. :-)
The "M" is also not fulfilled... I'm sure this can be made much shorter if all it needs to do is inserting lots of entries. No need to read from external files or anything in order to demonstrate slow insertion ;)

Re: How do I empty a table when using reference?

By doing

Code: Select all

reftable = {}
you don't empty the table but you're creating a new one. Obviously, this doesn't have any effect on any prior references. You need to kill those references individually since table references are completely unaware of other references that might exist.

Re: moai.Request() behaves strange

Can you check if the images mentioned by Thore here are all there on your system? Have you checked with SnoopDOS if MUI fails to load some images or anything?

Re: Planamarama

That's currently not possible but Plananarama 2.0 will give you this functionality. Together with Hollywood 9's new palette mode it will be possible to open real palette-based screens like in the good old days.
