I made a replacement for the function sub( to help with long strings.  Just replace sub( with abs(.

For a small string, the speed difference between abs( and sub( is almost unnoticeable.  However, if you have the following code for a 2000 char string:

For(A,1,1000
sub(Str0,1000,1
End

1 Minute, 25 seconds

With Correlation:

For(A,1,1000
abs(Str0,1000,1
End

15 seconds
Hmm, I wonder at about what string length the difference between sub and your custom command becomes significant. Nonetheless, very cool. =)

Assuming uniformly-sized tokens is a lot faster, it seems ;D
Great progress, Keep up the good work! :D

Quick thought: is it equally fast in Basic to display Sin and S? if so, since Sin uses S, i, n and ( as 4 text sprites you could optimize a tilemapping program that has 4 sprites, one after another, really often. :)

I'm pretty sure that S is faster than Sin(.  Whatever the case, using the token to display four token sets is easier said than done, especially since Correlation does not allow individual lower case letters

oh, I thought the OS used S i and n to create sin, and made them act like one token even though it rendered 3 text sprites.

Yeah, but I really don't want to mess around with tokens

So, using correlation if you changed the letters, Sin would still look like Sin?

I'm afraid I don't know what you mean.  Can you rephrase?

I finally have different sprite types (including masked) working, as well as optimizations and copying the screen only when all text is drawn.  Look in "Starcraft:Zeratul -- Eye Candy" for a demonstration screen shot

Here's a demonstration of Word Wrap Mode.  Once I fix some bugs (including getting "Ms" and "Ws" to display correctly) I'll apply this to a Starcraft: Zeratul Cutscene.

I'm just wondering, but is the "on-calc font editor" for Correlation posted earlier in this topic supposed to do anything, or is it just supposed to rickroll?

Could you turn off the run indicator when you are scrolling the text?

Which obviously shows I haven't been able to test it.  Oh, and it also makes you lose the game.

Darn, do you actually have one working? If not I made something really, really close (in Axe) in prep for Ximp ;)

EDIT: And I think when I finish Ximp, I'll add an option to export to a Correlation-compatible font, if that's okay with you?
