• Hey, Guest!

    XenForo 2.2 is coming soon, it's bringing many new features such as a PWA app for OG etc. It also comes with the drawback of more costs to update themes/some addons. It'll also remove access to some older browsers which'll suck but these shouldn't be used as their security sucks.

    With the costs already looming we decided to improve OG's look with a new fancy theme that gives OG a more gamer feel. This has cost us only slightly more than it would have cost to renew the current theme and runs alot nicer.

    You can beta test it here: Linky. (Please note only dark is live, light will come once issues are ironed out.)

    If the current theme breaks on update we will end of life it, but we'll make something looking similar based on the default free theme so don't fret!

Hi, I was making this post to ask if there are any other gpu's that render 3d graphics per scanline like the ds. As we all know, the ds doesn't use a framebuffer for its graphics display, it renders its polygons the way that sprites are rendered on retro consoles. You are limited on how many polygons you can render in a given frame, and fill rate isnt even a thing for the ds gpu since its done per scanline. So essentially, you can render a scene with all effects enabled, all at 60fps with the highest polycount the gpu supports. Is there any gpus in the past or after that render 3d models in this odd fasion?
