FPS limit and thumbnail problems
« on: November 19, 2011, 06:52:33 PM »


Hi everyone, I have this 2 problems that are driving me mad!

1)Frame limit-->We're making this 2.5 D game where there is a full 2d minigame, the problem is that on fast machines, where the fps grows up(>>100FPS) the characters are too fast!I even can't see they move, they just disappear in the point A and appear in B!
How can I Limit the Maximum FPS, or better make the character speed   FPS indipendent?

2)thumbnail Problem--if I save the game on an empty slot, no problem the thumb Image is drawn correctly, but if I overRide an existent slot, the image doesn't update, it remains the same of the previous savegame.
It only Update if i leave the game end start it again.
I read on a previous post that i have to Unload the Savegame window, to uncache the image, i tried, It doesn't work!!
I really don't know what to do.
Thanks for the help ;)

for first problem for each character 3d there is the velocity

ACTOR3DX
{
  NAME = "Actor1"
  CAPTION = "Actor1"
  INTERACTIVE = TRUE
  ACTIVE = TRUE
  SCRIPT = "actors\Lucine\Actor1.script"
  ;SHADOW_SIZE = 12.0
 ;LIGHT_POSITION { -40, 200, -40 }
  SHADOW_TYPE = "stencil"
;  SHADOW_COLOR { 0, 0, 0, 128 }
;  SHADOW_MODEL = "actors\Actor1.x"
  SCALE = 100
  FONT = "fonts\Monotype Corsiva Lucine.font"


  ;--- velocity
  VELOCITY = 35.0  ANGULAR_VELOCITY = 200.0

try ti set this.
if is a 2d sprite/character there is the delay in sprite editor for change velocity of the animation.

Yes,I know How to control the velocity,the problem is on very fast computers....there the characters move too fast!
I thought about making a script that should be a thing like this
switch(Game.Fps){

case (<60):
Setvelocity(1);

break;

case(>60)
setVelocity(2);
break;





}

that is: control the character velocity depending on FPS.
What do you think about it?
Could it work?
