Optimizing parallax star background

I have a parallax star background in my game, but drawing it takes a significant chunk of resources (I get 55% more FPS when I don't draw it). Is there a more efficient way to do this, or some way to better optimize my code? I made it have random depths (and sizes) because I think it looks a lot nic...

Re: Forum Super Project - ÖRGY

Adding to the list of ideas, a multiplayer tank game sort of like a 2D version of BZFlag might be cool.

Re: Forum Super Project

Why all the MMO suggestions? For a persistent world wouldn't we need to host our own servers? / sounds fun, I'll do it! :D I like space games the best, but that's just me. I know at least a few people who would love something similar to a multiplayer EV:N. I might be able to get my friend to make so...

Huh, weird. What are your computer specs? I have a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo using an nvidia geforce 9400m, and I got 200-210 fps (with vsync off) while sitting still doing nothing. I changed the radar to only update at a maximum of 20fps and that brought my framerate up to 230-240, but I guess that won't r...

Unnamed top-down space game

http://dl.dropbox.com/u/4214717/icon.png So, here's my game. It's a little like Escape Velocity: Nova, but without the awesome. :P No menus yet, and no real GUI either.
