[Solved] 100% CPU - no matter what code I use.
« on: August 11, 2008, 08:33:08 am »
Going through all the tutorials on the SFML website, every single one of them make the CPU spike to 100% when running. Why is this?

FYI: So does SDL!

If you don't limit your CPU usage, it will try to execute as fast as possible.
Try sf::Window::SetFramerateLimit() or sf::Sleep().

Code: [Select]

int main()
{
    while(1) { }
    return 0;
}


this code will also make your CPU spike at 100% (if you have a single core)

SetFramerateLimit works perfectly, I think.

Thanks a bunch!
