Use an OpenGL compiled displaylist to draw scanlines in
ZSNES, instead of feeding in manual tex / vertex coords
I'm using Linux/SDL, with a windows OpenGL video mode.
When running the ROM "Actraiser" without user input,
for exactly 30 seconds with 25% scanlines enabled,
auto-frame rate off (no skipping or limiting), oprofile
shows the number of clock cycles and % of total clock
Before my change:
618 0.2078 gl_drawwin
629 0.2117 gl_drawwin
600 0.1920 gl_drawwin
485 0.1569 gl_drawwin
534 0.1730 gl_drawwin
520 0.1685 gl_drawwin
It's not a dramatic change, and this function doesn't
use much CPU in the first place. But there seems to be
a clear trend that it is about 20% faster.
I'm still getting familiar with the zsnes code, this is
my first real *code* patch, so if there are any
problems with the style or anything feel free to tell
me how to improve.
