I’ve been using Xojo for a long time… but I never used it to make games or graphic intensive programs.
My son being 17 yo, he said; ‘Can I program a simple game with Xojo?’
So I did an experiment, I loaded a 1920x1080 picture in an offscreen buffer just to test the frame rate,
on a 2017 maxed-out iMac I get a frame rate of… 3.7 frames per second! (copy offscreen to a canvas of the same size).
In the old days, it was possible to reduce the color palette and set the system to 256 colors to get more speed, is this still possible?
Or am I approaching this the wrong way?
