GoatTracker slow on OS X

category: general [glöplog]
calling anything for each pixel drawn isn't a good idea :)

so that means, all fragment shaders are actually a bad idea? ;-)

I'm trying to find a way to insert a row in the pattern editor. The help clearly says INS and no other key can do that. WTF...

The help also says that "ALT+DEL emulates INS on Mac OS X" :)

Hm... I just DL'ed version 2.73 of goatTracker. Program usually works, but CPU always fires up to 67%. Sometimes things overheat when pressing play, pushing the CPU over the edge of 100% -> Resulting in a practical freeze of the app.

Anyone got any idea what would cause this strange behavior? I am on a mid 2009 macbook btw (osx 10.10.3)

I began to play with the command-line options, but no luck so far. Maybe there is some setting, that will produce the gain I am searching for.

GoatTracker.app/Contents/MacOS/GoatTracker --help

Here's how to trigger the app on os-x with cmd-line opts.

...could make it more stable, but the CPU still haunts beyond 66%...

Fn+Enter is supposed to produce Insert, can't check it now.

@ PulkoMandy:

Are you aware that quote is from 2008? ;)
I'm still fixing these bugs, however. If your suggestions are still not implemented, maybe you should repeat them to me or add bug reports to the new GrafX2 homepage.
