Slow Graphics

Developer

I have noticed that in the current release of the source code, the graphics code is extremely slow.  If there a reason for this?

Due to what our compiler emits, the current binary code is slow. Besides that, there's no lowlevel access patterns used by the graphics cde. This is due to lack of features of the compiler. All of these issues are due to a lack of resources (manpower)......

The reason the current VGAScreen code is slow, is because it uses delegates for the get/set pixel methods.

Is it possible to switch it to not use delegates?  And if so, what code would I use?

Best way to speed things up, is to help out on curent compiler issues, so we can get next release out. After next release, one of the major work items is graphics. Doing the graphics then is better than to do it now......

K, then what are the issues? Are they on the work list in Google docs?

I dont even remember where I logged them... i will dig around... but i
can tell you the first step is to finish making asm stepping work in the
debugger... without that its likely you cant fix the bugs...
