View Full Version : Creating Journal Files for Benchmarks

If you are going to use a journal as a benchmark, there are at least 3 things to remember:

Keep the test models in a consistent location. For example, I use C:\Temp for my models.
Do NOT use the MRU list to open a model. Always use the normal Open dialog. If you use the MRU list/page to open a model, that will cause the journal replay to fail.
Add the following line just after the line in the journal that reads "Set Jrn = CrsJournalScript":
Jrn.Directive "DebugMode" , "GfxUseDx9AccelerationOnPlay" , 1
This enables hardware acceleration for the duration of the playback.
