    Game running slow on N90

    Hi, I´ve been reading this forum a lot, but i never post anything since my english is awful, but ill try to do my best.

    The thing is that I´m traying to port my game -that runs ok in most of smaller devices- to the n90 device.. but i´m getting a very slow frame rate..

    I read that one of the principal causes is becouse the screen is to big (352x416) but I hope that there is some way to solve the problem :(.

    I´ve already did some stuff.. like :

    *dont use any sleep to control the framerate in this version..
    *switch between canvas and gamecanvas..
    *the use of one backbuffer when use canvas
    *refresh only the areas that change in the cicle whit setClip
    *change between drawRegion and drawImage.
    *use loaded flipped image instead of use drawRegion rotations

    The loop is already optimize... at least I use the same src for many other devices that are really slow like motorola l6 and others.. and it runs quite good in the other devices. Y also got the same problem in nokia 5800 xpressmusic, that has a 360x360 screen.

    I dont know if someone had experiencied this.. but any advice will be good.

    Thanks again, and sorry my english

    well the 5800XM is known for being sluggish with games, don't know why though.. Also the 5800XM has a 240x320 display and not at a 360x360 (which would make it a square phone btw)...
    also the N90 is somewhat old, actually pretty old :P it might be so that your game is pushing its limits... have you experienced any slowdowns on similarily aged devices ?
