Re: "Questions that don't deserve their own thread" thread

Is there a way to get the amount of memory a system has? If there is not, could you guys add a function for that in 0.9.2? It'd be very useful for what I have in mind.

Re: "Questions that don't deserve their own thread" thread

But there is a huge difference in amount of memory used between a spritebatch that was first created and had nothing done to it and one that was filled and then cleared, why is that?

Re: "Questions that don't deserve their own thread" thread

Plu, calling collectgarbage didn't help, I'm fairly sure this is a love2d bug.

Re: "Questions that don't deserve their own thread" thread

After I clear a spritebatch of it's contents via :clear(), it doesn't seem to free up the RAM nor VRAM that it used, yet :getCount() after clearing returns 0. Is this a bug or is it intentional? Edit: oh another interesting thing - if you call :bind on a spritebatch, add the sprites you need to it, ...

Re: "Questions that don't deserve their own thread" thread

Honestly, if every little bit matters, you should probably build it in C. It'll earn you a lot more speed than anything else would :) With the current speed ( 930 fps on my end ), it's not necessary. x) The reason why I am asking whether there are any other FFI version libraries, is that even thoug...

Re: "Questions that don't deserve their own thread" thread

It's not (without modifying LÖVE's source), and you generally shouldn't need that kind of micro-optimization for spritebatches. If you're considering it, it might be a sign that you're trying to optimize down a misleading path or you're using the wrong sort of algorithm or tool for your end goal. N...

Re: "Questions that don't deserve their own thread" thread

Interesting. Is it possible to write FFI versions of thr spritebatch library? If it is, what would I need to do?

Re: "Questions that don't deserve their own thread" thread

Is there any way to load .lua files in threads? I tried doing require "filename", but it errors out in the thread. You have to require love.filesystem (and any other love modules you might want to use) in the thread's code. See the [wiki]love.thread[/wiki] wiki page. Yeah, I figured that out after ...

Holy shit dude, you just saved my life.
