Update 70

A lot of profiling and refactoring have been done last week. I have also implemented some dialogs for the last level. I am trying to optimize the allocation of vectors using the function reserve. But first I have searched all over the internet to find the best free profiler. The profiler packed with visual studio 2015 seem to give the most readable result, microProfiler is also a nice one because you can profile in real time.  CodeXL doesn’t have support for intel processor and the interface is not so good.

I am trying to optimize the text rendering in the game because sometimes when there is a shader applied the framerate drop from 60 fps to 15 fps. Maybe this is only due to the shader and I need to find a shader profiler.

For Christmas, I have received a new graphic tablet: Wacom Intuos medium pro since the small bamboo gives me wrist pain after working several hours on a piece. This tablet is better is every way possible, interface, precision, size, quality. The only downside is the price, like every other Wacom products you need to spend hundreds of dollars to have something good. I think this tablet have the best size and quality for the price since Cintiq are overpriced.

They are other brands like Huion, Ugee, Yiynova, the problem is Wacom have so many patents and years on experience on tablets it’s very difficult for new competitors to achieve the quality. Only maybe a very big corporation like Apple, Microsoft, Samsung can pull off a quality similar. And there are compatibilities problems with drivers of Wacom and other brands.
