Optimize/speedup code for texture decoding - (Moved)

Recommended Posts

HardXOR

Hello AutoIt community

I run into speed problem in my script wich i cant solve myself, problem is with decoding texture loop - for better explanation, you need extract from file pallete (16x 16 RGB color) and picture data (224 * 128 byte), then use correct color for your picture data.... nothing extra hard and also texture is quite small 224*256

it is for my car model viewer/later maybe editor GranTurismo 2 from Playstation 1, so its old dataformat and i cant understand why AutoIt take so long to decode texture when good old Playstation almost 2,5 decades old can do that nearly immediately (when you list through cars in shop or garage)

My first atempt was create all trought dllstructure, because its easier approach, but it was soooo slow (40-50s for create textures) then i upgrade my routine via arrays, first 3D arrays later only 1D, next i put decoding colors outside loop but it is still not enough, my last version took cca 15s wich is still unacceptable for car model viewer when you click on one carmodel from listview (1100 cars for whole game) and you must wait 15-16s for model to load.... :( oh and i forgot mention some cars have more then 1 color (much more... 8-9-10 etc) soloading take 8-9-10 times more time

in attachment i post texture file from GranTurismo 2 for one car (contain only 1 color) and also my dll struct version and array version code

dll struct version - ± 40 sec (33 without saving)

if anyone can optimize my code I would be very grateful, or pointing me to better solution, thx

      I want to make a while loop, that creates variables based on a array. For thist I created the array $iDsO with the number and the name of folders in an other folder. Every folder has a different name an I want to create variables(arrays) for each folder that show me all the files in that folder. For example: I have the Folder \Folder1. In it there are the Folders \1, \2, \3. In 1, 2 and 3 there are some files(.png). The array for Folder1 is $iDsO and now I want to crate the arrays $iDsO1, $iDsO2 and $iDsO3 with the files in them can I make something like this:
      While $iDs > 0 ;$iDs is the number of files in Folder1>> $iDsO[0] $iDs#here should come the Foldername for example '1'# = _FileListtoArray(@ProgramFilesDir&"\Folder1\"&$iDsO[$iDs]) $iDs = $iDs - 1 Wend So that in the End I have three variabels ($iDs1, $iDs2 and $iDs3)
       
      Is this posible or if not what could I do instead ( I don´t know the number of folders in Folder1 in the begining).

      Hello everyone,
      How can I display in ascending  sequence some numbers stored in a string variable?
      $str = "18,03,48,23" MsgBox(0,"test",$str) I would like it to display "03,18,23,48"

      Hello,
       
      I am currently writing a program that parses a massive table from a website, and need a way to add a progress bar while parsing.
      I am currently using the function _IETableWriteToArray($oObj, True) to parse the array. I need the progress bar to update as the table is parsed, not just at the end of the parsing.
      Any help at all would be very much appreciated!
       
      *EDIT --> The array I am left with after parsing is $array[0-50000][16]

      So Im trying to make a simple 2d game and make some sort of collision detection so why not to make a 2 dimensional array but i have no clue how  to write it in multiple lines
      Global $map[5,5] = [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0 _ [0,0,0,0,0] something like this but it doesn't work
