Re: How to tell if you are CPU or GPU limited (split)

... set of circumstances to be tested is a given, but the use of the system with which to do so is a decision. i.e using an existing feature like the FGTape, or introduce a new one? I would like to know the advantages for FGTape, knowing that the generic protocol potentially (might have?) skipped ...

Re: How to tell if you are CPU or GPU limited (split)

By tape, Hooray, do you mean a profile of rendering options (i.e., properties to set for a scenario)? fgtape = $FG_ROOT/Docs/README.flightrecorder: http://sourceforge.net/p/flightgear/fgdata/ci/next/tree/Docs/README.flightrecorder (what used to be the old "instant replay" ...

Re: Best Version of FG.

... somehow you still misunderstand: ⋅  you come up with 2 scenarios for telling if a setup is cpu or gpu-limited ⋅  we record 2 fgtapes for each scenario and add those to $FG_ROOT (to be shipped with each future release) ⋅  those fgtapes would serve as benchmarks, using ...

Re: Best Version of FG.

I guess we have to give it a try then to see if it's any useful ... creating a fgtape for both situations with the ogel should be straightforward. I assume that fgtapes can be loaded using fgcommands (never checked that). So the next step would be putting the recorded ...

Re: Looking for people with ATI/AMD GPUs building from sourc

... be grown and maintained as part of $FG_ROOT - at some point, this could even include scripted flights (think route-manager driven, and/or replay/fgtape based). Once there is a handful of different test cases, those could be used for regression testing purposes - e.g. to compare FG 3.2 RAM/VRAM ...

Re: 32bit and low memory systems, read this

... be careful when it comes to drawing conclusions. For starters, you will need a reproducible test case - e.g. a startup profile, or a saved flight (fgtape) and then play with different startup/runtime settings (location/aircraft, enabled/disabled features) to see if/how the bug can be reproduced. ...

Re: Impressive promo video wanted

@MIG29pilot In a few of my posts with videos I included my fgtape as a link. Here is one with an fgtape (the video was recorded with flyby view). I may have posted a few more fgtapes on the SpaceShuttle thread. I think most of them were before the landing ...

Re: Space Shuttle
