Constant Game Speed ?
Hello Esenthel,

How do I make sure that all movements and rotations of all game objects -
animated characters, cameras, static objects in the scene takes place at a
constant speed across different hardware specs - same speed on both weaker/older CPU and GPU and stronger/newer CPU and GPU ?

What about animated character models ? How do I make sure that the animations will take place at the same speed on all hardware irrespective
of the processing power of the motherboard processor and GPU ?

Does the Esenthel 2.0 engine handle all these automatically internally ? Or do I have to handle this myself by writing custom code/routines ?

Thanks,

EE handles it, also for your own code use delta time(Time.d())

Zervox : Would you please care to clarify what are handled by Esenthel Engine 2.0 automatically and what needs to be handled by me through custom code ?

All existing EE code is correct.
You only need to take care of your own code that you will be writing.

You handle this by multiplying everything that is affected by the framerate (moving objects, incrementing vars, ..) with the delta time. Which is Time.d();

delta time is the time in between 2 frames. So the higher your frame-rate, the lower deltatime will be.
