RMXP : Add-on for the Neo Mode 7 Engine : Neo Mode 7 +
Version: 1.0

Introduction
This add-on for the Neo Mode 7 script was designed to increase a little the performances. Results may vary depending on the machine.


Features
  • global performances slightly increased when rendering mode 7.
  • mode 7 drawing only when moving -> lag is strongly reduced at stop.
  • resolutions [R2]&[R3] applied only when moving -> not so ugly at stop (you can disable this feature by replacing "false" by "true" line 34.


Installation

Paste this script below the Neo Mode 7 script (compatible with the latest version on this board - 29/03/2010, or here), and copy the DLL at the root of your project.

#============================================================================
# Add-on : Neo Mode 7 +
# V.1.0 - 15/09/10

#
# This script increases (a little) the performances of the Neo Mode 7 engine.
# It is compliant with the 29/03/10 version that can be found on rmvxp.com.
# It requires the file "MGCmode7+.dll".

Hello,

I don't know if you know about mkxp (https://github.com/Ancurio/mkxp), it's an open-source C implementation of the RGSS engine. It's supposed to replace the Game.exe and RGSSXXXX.dll files. It's more powerful and faster than the original RGSS Player, and it's cross-platform (with it you can play RMXP games on Mac and Linux).

The thing is that mkxp doesn't have Win32API for obvious reasons, and so this script cannot work using it. It would be great if you could make a version of Neo Mode 7 working with it, could you give it a try ?

Thanks !

His last posting was 2010 for this system and has not been around for roughly a year. Meanwhile, without support for use of outside DLLs, MKXP will not be able to use his custom graphic dll.

I can't send him a PM nor an email, so I tried to post it there ^^

If the functions that are currently in the DLL and needed by the scripts are built in mkxp (so in the engine) we should be able to call them without referencing the DLL, and it would be cross-platform aswell... that's why I asked MCG if he could rewrite his DLL directly into the source of mkxp (or a fork).

or if he could create a Non-DLL version of his script, would be nicer, not just for mkxp, but maybe for Regal and other nonRM editors.

But to be honest, all I want is a pure PC 3d version of RMXP, no heightmaps, actual models, or at the least , come on! let's get an RPG maker 4 up here... Surely we can run Plasystation 2 Graphics!

We surely could, but it would take time to do and would cost more than $20 :D
