Seems a little slow...

I have a Mandelbrot generator on my Rockbox Sansa, and it runs a lot faster. Even after thinking about the screen size, the Wii version seems very slow. Any chance you could do something about that?

In the source in the loop that does the computation, in between every line is a call to VIDEO_WaitVSync() which can be commented out, and the update is easily 10x faster. This is line 180 in template.c in the source zipfile. Dashxdr 19:37, 18 September 2010 (CEST)

I went ahead and made the change I described (commented out the 1 line) and rebuilt everything and it's now version 1.2. I had big plans about making all sorts of improvements to get major speedup, but in the end I decided there would be nothing left of the original source, so there is no point in even using it as a starting point. So I figured just do the minimal, trivial improvement to the speed and leave it at that. Dashxdr 16:48, 30 September 2010 (CEST)
