    in case you guys missed it in the Katamari thread..


    for those on 3g/1gen iphones:

    wifi, edge, bluetooth, and 3g all take eat up cpu every few ticks


    airplane mode + a respring will cure your fps issues in most titles


    this was more of an issue in pocketPC days when things weren't as optimized, but it amazes me that people still complain about fps when they're running all these things in the background.

    i mean cmon, these comm services don't run on magic, pinging to ur carrier + wiki ap's every few ticks does indeed consume processing resources :eek:
     
  2. I thought you were talking about First Person Shooters for a bit- I thought 'what the hell is this guy banging on about' :D

    Good to know

    This is good to know. And I am sure that a lot of people who have an iPhone 3G would not know that background processes could be causing games to run less smoothly (ie framerate issues). Perhaps developers of some games need to start advising these functions can be turned off when playing for optimal performance?

    And I also think that you should change the title of this thread!
