As we know, there is a
GL_MAX_TEXTURE_SIZE on each mobile phone which makes things really hard. I write an app for all mobile devices and I need to load some huge spritesheets combined with 64 frames when each of them has 512x1024 dimensions.
As I tested and read, I should load spritesheets <= 1024 so it will work on all mobile devices including IPhone3 and some old Androids.
If I have a spritesheet 512x1024 with 64 frames, it's dimensions are really, really large - for ex. if the spritesheet has 64 columns, it's with is ~61000 px.
Of course, I can cut it, but it gives me 64 images and I have no idea if this if efiicient of not.
How do you handle things like this? Scaling the graphics down is not an option - it lowers the quality and my game IS QUALITY.
If someone has any experience I would be grateful!
