Hi, The question is a bit hard to formulate, but here is my problem: I am doing a cell-based simulation and want to display the states of the so-called cells on a grid using color codes. In Java mode, it's quite fast and I have used the architecture below:
in setup(): create the cells (an Arraylist of cells), start a thread("computation"), and call noLoop();
in the method computation(): update the state values of all cells, and, at the end, call redraw();
in draw(): a "for" loop in which I call the draw() for each cell.
It did not bother me and basically I was happy that the simulation time was faster than the real time.
I tried to port it to Android (I am testing it on a Galaxy S5), and now it is much slower. I guess it is because of the for loop in the draw(), so I tried:
putting this "for" loop in another thread(), but then everything bugs
putting this "for" loop in a class inheriting AsyncTask: it works but the display is messed up.
I guess i need to put some "synchronize" here and there, but I am always confused on how to do that.
