If done well OOP should make new tools much easier to implement, and I wouldn't expect it to reduce performance too much, however my knowledge of Java benchmarking is virtually non-existant.

I think k0z codes almost exclusively in delphi

but, uh...why not just have the editor allow you to drag and drop your images around precisely and generate the .lvz itself? (it would of course be nice for people that know what they're doing to be able to mess with the organization before the lvz(s) are generated)

eh?


a Java App faster than a Pascal App? i doubt it, Java is an interpreted language while Pascal is a compiled language, there's quite a difference in speed in both, Pascal is faster.

CLE Editor for a machine that cna handle DirectX 7 will always be faster than a Java Editor for all machines, but still CLE could be made better.

its possible to access opengl apis for java... and then your speed issue is no longer rendering but the nuts and bolts of the java language. Java's main downfall is the overhead for loading classes... especially GUI (IE swing/awt) classes into its memory. I get (basically) great performance with java except when i can tell memory becomes a concern. On a mhz+ machine the difference as far as large platform applications (ie eclipse and netbeans) isnt a hindrance or even something that i need to think about when developing.

I was referring specifically to how they did it in CLE - which makes for a very slow buggy editor - not pascal in general sa_tongue.gif
