Little Nell on A4000 (MindCandy 2)

category: general [glöplog]

We're capturing Amiga demos for MindCandy Vol 2, but for Little Nell we're getting really low framerates, like 10-15fps. We're running it on an A4000 with a 68060/60MHz. I think that's about as fast as we can get for a 68k, no? We have Picasso and Cybervision 3D cards, but are they going to help?

We could certainly run it faster in WinUAE, but we're trying to avoid emulation as much as possible, especially not for an entire demo. If anyone has seen better framerates on an Amiga, what would you recommend? Otherwise, we may replace it with something else.

Is it out of the question that TBL could write a PAL/NTSC movie renderer for the demo?

Yeah, and why not mail TBL themselves directly?

OK, apparently, that's about as fast as the demo will get on a real Amiga. So either a) we go with it, b) we capture it in WinUAE at around 30fps, or c) we capture Perfect Circle instead.

Little Nell is that slow. Just skip it, perfect circle is a better demo and has decent framerate.

i'm guessing that will look the same on winuae as its not really a hardware demo, but perfect circle would be better for me. Either way, so long as its not A.

since when is it slow?
it was fast enough on bp. for what do you need 30 fps? this is not quake.

btw. if you want to make it faster you can buy yourself a quartz (or whoever it is called in english) and overclock the 060.

xeNusion: It was never fast enough on BP, people where just drunk and the projector hides it well enough.

doh, i actually forgot about silkcut. kalms prefers that one, so i'll have the crew watch it and see if they agree.

I actually like silkcut a lot better than little nell =) (well, except for Teque's awesome soundtrack of course)

_IF_ you definately want to do Little Nell, according to Rubberduck using UAE would be the best option. However, we want Silkcut!!! ;)
