This is my first post to the forum as only joined yesterday…
I am interested in all things game related and am glad to have found this forum.
Anyway I have been working the past while on a director based bench test app which i hope when finised will enable users to bench their machines online and submit their results to a database. A bit like 3d mark (but not as cutting edge/nice) where a series of tests are performed and the machine given a score.
Anyway this is basically where I am currently , its just a toy at the moment where you can turn on and off various features and see how they affect the performance(fps). at the moment it is capped at 100fps being the max it will run at.
Its still a bit buggy and also dont worry if your machine chugs – directors 3d engine is old (only supports direct x up as far as 7).
I would appreciate and comments/suggestions…
some things I will add are real time shadows and an implementation of havok physics.
