TEXTURE_MAX_LOAD=

Recommended Posts

Is it correct that the value of TEXTURE_MAX_LOAD= should reflect the memory of the video card. Meaning 512 rather than 1024 for, say, a 8800GT/512MB??

No, this would b e way too conservative and unnecessarily reduces your video quality.Even 128 MB cards can handle 1024x1024 pixel textures. I was running Tileproxy on a Geforce 6800 with 128 MB video RAM with highest texture resolution.

My understanding is that when refering to 1024x1024 they arn't refering to MB but pixels. So at 32 bit colour I think that works out to 32MB per 1024x1024 texture. Steven.
