    TPT development has been stalled for 2 months. I'll get back to it soon.

    I would chock this up as the VS compiler being much better as jacob1 said. 

     

    When i compiled tpt a while back after adding some shit to it, i was getting ~57fps on a save where with his mod i was only in the low 40s.

     

    Unless 64 bit operations are being fudged with 32 bit ones, 64 bit will likely be slower. More data means some operations take longer, etc. It really all depends on the cpu.

    64bits is too much faster thanks!

    Don't drop 32 bit! If the game doesn't support 32 bit, then all of the players will be gone, because most likely, they use 32 bit.

    There are very few people who still only have 32 bit. Those people also probably have terrible computers.

    But anyway, I haven't done any real testing yet.

    x64 also has many more registers to work with, a larger instruction set, etc.

     

    It isn't cut and dry which is more efficient, except from probably a cache perspective.

     

    I say we only start supporting the x32 ABI and get the best of both worlds, the x64 register set and the x86 integer/pointer sizes.

    Can msvc do that? How many computers support that?

    I'm switching to using msvc to compile TPT because the mingw cross compiler I was using previously sucked and was creating noticeably slower builds.
