    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 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
