Multiple Drawscreens?


Recommended Posts

I was kind of curious. 


My games seems to work pretty good but I will notice a scanline jump to 263 at only a couple points - when there is a collision with two sprites. 

I have one drawscreen so I put another drawscreen command in there with my collision codes and it seemed to resolve many of the issues I was facing. 

I had thought that you should only have one drawscreen (although I think in some other programs I had done more and just moved when it is executed. 

Is there any benefit to have more than one? Is it a best practice to try and have more instead of squeezing everything into one? Does this make sense to anyone? Lol

Effectively what that ends up doing is slowing your game down a bit by pausing for an extra frame when you have a collision. That can be fine depending on the game. You will have to see if the slowdown is noticeable at all. 

Thanks. I thought that this might be the effect. I had considered making some giant workaround of everything whenever a collision happened when I tried this to see. I did t notice any remarkable difference, apart from the scan lines, so it may be a good thing in the end.
