Re: Memory management?

I'm not sure what the on-disk size of the images has to do with anything?

Re: Memory management?

60 x 1920 x 1080 x 4 x 2 = 949MiB bytes of RAM use for the image cache alone (worst case).

Re: Questions about Android resolution

A lot of phones are [800-854]x480 though, and would downscale 800x600 to 640x480. Developing something with a 4:3 aspect ratio is pretty silly when almost every phone/tablet is widescreen.

"The Internet" isn't the most credible of sources. The data could be biased, outdated or just plain incorrect.

Re: Essential features for EVEN: a new visual novel engine

Neither Java Web Start, nor Applets are available on Android/iOS. Then again, I don't think WebGL works on their default web browsers either. The only relevant part of WebGL security concerns is that they might slow down or stop WebGL adoption. >EVNE can animate thousands of sprites simultaneously D...

It doesn't give you more real estate. Full-screen is full-screen.

The increase in text sharpness is already worth it.

Re: What's you opinion on screen resolution?

You don't want to use upscaled images -- you'll get scaling artifacts for any non-integer scale factor. 960x540 is the only one that would scale cleanly, but 960x540 is really tiny. If you're worried about performance, 1280x720 images on a 1280x720 screen is likely to be faster than 960x540 on a 192...

Re: Ren'Py 6.17.0 Prerelease (RAPT is now part of Ren'Py)

I don't think Ren'Py renders to a fixed-size buffer (yet), instead it scales each sprite as it's drawn to the screen. Under those circumstances, if your window size is larger than your game's resolution and your sprites normally downscaled, your sprites actually take advantage of the larger resoluti...

Are you (down)scaling your sprites in any way at runtime?

Unless I'm reading that wrong, it's using a driver released on March 13, 2007
