quake3 was using skeletal animation if i remember correctly. it runs ok
No, md3 is still keyframed. But it seperated the model into sub-parts (head, torso,...) and maybe there was a basic skeleton to connect those parts, but the actual animation was keyframed.

mm, you are right. but still there is animation and it performs quite well ;)

i've just discovered we can profile Android apps within Eclipse ;D i'm not good at reading profiling results, but seems as with animation most of the time is spent in nio buffer operations.  if i got it correct, once direct nio buffers are filled, it's only passing a pointer to native code. so i suppose you are right, JIT can dramatically reduce time of passing data to native code ;D

....i hope so.

I didn't know that you can profile Android apps with Eclipse. Do i have to install something or does this work with the Android plugin for Eclipse out of the box?

Which Android version is that? 2.0 or 2.1?

2.0. This version of the milestone does not have the 2.1 update yet.

Their server seems to run on 2.2 too...it's faster than the database:

Code: [Select]
Error establishing a database connection

Results look promising. However, older phones like mine will never see an official update to 2.2. So you either have to drop support for them or still limit yourself to something that works reasonable well on these devices.

Yeah true. Though a lot of phones are getting the 2.1 update which is slowly being handed out. Droid Eris for this week. I got mine a few weeks back.
So it will also take a while for 2.2 to be handed around.

2.1 is spreading to the masses(32.4%) but the current stat's still show a lot on 1.5/1.6 however: http://developer.android.com/resources/dashboard/platform-versions.html

I heard that 2.2 was supposed to end the fragmentation and bring most of the phones up to speed. No idea but nexus one is safe for sure  ;D
