    MASSIVE Performance Loss in Fusion 2.5 vs MMF2.

    This relates specifically to the Surface Object. I made the EXACT same program in both MMF2 and 2.5 separately, to compare performance. The program just draws the background of a level from binary data onto a surface object.

    With the one I made in MMF2 I get around 700-800 FPS. It uses 64mb of memory.
    With the one made in Fusion 2.5 I get around 40-50 FPS. It uses 119mb of memory.

    However, if I load the one made in MMF2 into Fusion 2.5, I get 1000+ FPS, and use 64mb of memory. In that case, performance is increased in 2.5.

    Can anyone explain why this is happening? Is it a fault in the surface object alone, or something to do with 2.5? I'm sure I'm using the most recent version of the surface object and Fusion 2.5.

    Odd.
    Do both applications have the same Display mode settings?

    Can you load up an example MFA?

    As Jeff mentioned, 2.5 uses different default Display settings.

    Yeah, they're both using Direct 3D 9, and are set to 1000 FPS with machine independent speed checked.

    If you check the Surface thread you'll find that Looki is aware that it isn't optimized for 2.5. That's probably the reason it's so expensive comparatively.

    I turned off machine independent speed in each version and got roughly the same fps for both.

    So, will there be any consequences down the road if I continue working on the game with the MMF2 version in 2.5? It's performance is what I would have expected, but people have said that moving a project from MMF2 to 2.5 can be glitchy.

    I turned off machine independent speed in each version and got roughly the same fps for both.
    Just tried that, and it went from 50fps to 20.

    Oh, those examples won't work now that I think about it, because I didn't include a tileset with it, so it's not actually drawing anything to the surface. Whoops.
    Use these instead. Make sure to unzip everything to the same place.
