  • #4 ✎ 476 SquareFingers O3DS is slower than N3DS. ... which addresses the 'why', but not 'how to fix'. How to fix is to do less computations. A quick fix might be to double all your movement values and use VSYNC 2 rather than VSYNC. Posted Edited by SquareFingers

    That's not entirely true. Doing a LOT of floating point math is actually pretty slow, even on modern PCs (but less so.) That's why a lot of computation-heavy software uses caching etc. to save on computations.

Express Yourself Second Year My account is over 2 years old Website My recommendations are: -use integer variables where you can (probably won't have a huge impact, but it's worth a try) -avoid slow graphics commands whenever possible (use sprites or BG for moving objects instead of graphics) Posted Edited by 12Me21
