Back to work

Happy new year everyone! I've just returned to work at M&D. It feels a bit weird to start working again and very exhausting to go up at 6 o'clock in the morning to catch the train, but hopefully it will work out better this time around. Of course it does feel really nice to get some money again.
Unfourtunatly I haven't finnished any of the epic projects I started during my time off, but I've done some neat experiments with my engine and some pretty effective optimizations. I've almost quadrupled the framerate (though that isn't really as impressive as it sound, given the state it was in).
Also I finally recieved my wacom board yesterday and I've been practicing drawing ever since; in the little spare time I have now. Maybe I'll post some images soon, if I dare. Other than that I probably won't be posting a lot for a while now.


  1. whats was the frame rate? 5fps? lol.

  2. Nah I don't think it ever dropped quite that far; it was hanging around 20-30fps in a rather tiny testscene (with shadows and reflections and stuff) but I was doing some pretty stupid stuff in the render update and used some ancient techniques. There's still lots more to be done though

  3. Have phun with the train :)

  4. ok, cool, well thats not so bad, at least there is some room for improvement.
