9 ways to optimize a game [in BGE]


Thatimst3r touches on a number of techniques that will help you get the best performance for your game/realtime projects.

In this tutorial I go over 9 different things you can do to optimize your game within the blender game engine. Many of the concepts used can also be applied to any other game engine.

We cover:

  • Vertice count
  • Texture size
  • LoD
  • LoD for lights
  • Physics
  • GLSL render panel
  • Occluder objects
  • Linking duplication
  • Resolution + clipping


All of these concepts are explained in detail with working examples to try and help you better understand their benefits.

Hopefully this will be useful for anyone currently making a game, that is running poorly.
