Ok so...as it turns out the PS3 is a really big distraction, especially mixed with an excessive amount of crap from work and starting a new semester at school. But I have made a few changes to the new graphics engine the main thing of which is that originally I had written a (long) routine to go and figure out which tiles were on each map surrounding the map the player is on and on the same map and to only load those textures to save memory. As it turns out it really doesn't save much memory as compared to loading all the textures and unloading the tile surfaces from memory. And also the peak memory usage is higher when they are loaded procedurally (which means it takes more memory overall to do it the way I had originally set it up even though it generally uses less because there are not as many textures in mem). So basically, now it just loads all the textures into memory vs the procedural loading. This also fixed a few bugs with certain textures not being loaded fast enough when switching maps. I haven't gotten to sprites yet but right now I'm working on making map edges not appear and act like map edges.
So that's about it regarding the game right now. As far as the forums are concerned...why are they dead? Are you punishing me for a lack of updates? What ever happened to the RP forum? C'mon people, you're going to get me discouraged! :cry: :lol:

So that's about it for now. When I have something good I'll probably post a video so you can see the changes before I actually let you play (beta testers at least :P).
