Title: Faster Way to load an TGA image pack?
Post by: LackofTrack on September 05, 2020, 07:12:49 pm
Hi!

My map uses 48 tiles and I'm using jo_sprite_add_image_pack to load them, however the game takes about 15 secs to start when I use that function.
Is there any way to speed up the loading?

Hi,

Use 8 bits TGA or Jo Bin format instead.

If you use these tiles every time, you can also embed them in the code (hardcoded image)

I already use 8 Bit TGA so that wouldn't help. Is there any way to have a map use a tileset instead? I think that would solve the problem.
