Nothing good will ever come of Exophase.

E-mail me a savestate from one of the worst areas in Metroid Fusion and I'll put it into the profiling runs.fusion_power said:Exophases Blog is interesting, even for me. ^^ Yes, I think this Alpha Blending is a big Performance killer in Metroid Fusion. ( bigger than "video speed" I would say ) Sector 4 and 5 - underwater eats frames without end. With Alpha blending over the whole screen on these places, I think it's one of the biggest performance-killing 2D GBA Games ^^ So if Exo can manage to improve the speed for Alpha effects to normal ingame speed I think the 2D games will run incredible fast in areas without heavy gfx effects (like they do so yet here and there )
Alpha will never be as fast as non-alpha, that'd mean the alpha cost would be 0. But if I can improve the speed of the base rendering then that will improve the speed of all scenes.
