Re: delayed blit was (Re: [pygame] aargh, performance)

well, both layers are moving, depending on the player movement,
so I think renderupdates will be out of the question ?

the backgroundlayer is a sky with clouds, and the layer on top of that has
but, it is a large map with a lot of transparancy. I guess i would have to
something manually that divides the screen in rough rects depending on the
layer, there will be some overlap, but this way i could leave out large
of the background layer that do not need blitting because the top layer
covers them
and could leave out large portions of the top map that are transparant
though i'm not sure how to do it yet, i think it will boost performance ?

regards, Rob
