[AD] slow fonts

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More lists.liballeg.org/allegro-developers Archives ]

What's the status on the slow font drawing in a5?

I just tested out my SH09 game on a Windows XP P4 1.8 Ghz / GeForce 2
MX 400 computer using D3D driver and just adding a single font call
makes the game completely unplayable. I cannot test in OpenGL as there
are no drivers installed.

I did some timing and it takes 0.50 seconds to draw a word of nine
characters to a bitmap. Once I remove all calls to the font routines,
the game runs at a reasonable framerate.
