Hi there, I am wondering if I am doing something wrong, or if I expect too much from Leadwerks... I built a small medivial house, just to play around. Soon I recognized that I got trouble with perfromance, very low FPS in Debug and normal run mode. So I started testing Leadwerks Performance a bit. I dont have experience with other engines, Leadwerks is the first I get my hands on. Well to move on, I rebuilt the whole house, creating models with less polygons and I also disabled most of the shadows. I posted a view screenshots where you can see my poly count and fps rate. I dont really understand why its lagging. Even if I just place a single house I get only 30 FPS. Ok the textures need some optimization but about 500 MB memory usage in summary isnt that much, even if its much for those few houses. I am a bit disappointed. How should I ever create a livley city when the performance is that bad? I searched the web for what poly counts are common and found out that 10k polygons are ok for a detailed character, for a prop its suggested to be 500 -1.5k. So 7k for a whole house really isnt much. So am I doing something wrong? Because I cannot believe Leadwerks performance is that bad. I need to add that if I decrease the resolution of my project to standart (something like 1024 x 768) it runs smoother, but for the city map I still get FPS drops and a maximum of 30 - 40 FPS which is not optimal. But still it needs to run smooth on a 1920 x 1080 resolution! I also want to add that If I activate static shadows for all the props build around the house (Planks, Lamp, Windows, etc.) the framerate is like hell. I dont think I can do something so wrong with just a single house and some textures, but I am glad if I am wrong A few more Infos: - I dont use any extra shaders - there are two point lights per house - I set the screen resolution to 1920 x 1080 - even if I export the game and run it I get 20 - 30 FPS (for the "city" map) - My specs: Intel Core i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40 GHz, 8 GB Ram, Windows 7 64 Bit, Nvidia Geforce GTX 960 4G (4 GB Vram) - I use specular and normalmaps for all textures - The houses dont have an interior I really appreciate if you are able to help me. If you need some more info please tell me. I just want to make a awesome game...
Alright so let me explain myself a bit here, you know how in games you have those options that define how much gamma there is and whatnot? I was wondering how to do that and how to keep it persistent through all the levels the user has created. An example of this would be to manipulate say the Bloom shader, by having an option to toggle it on or off an keep it saved. I'm not asking anyone to code anything for me, but instead to guide me in the right direction.
