unity-2d is less repsonsive than unity 'proper'

Asked by Simon Watson


I'm not sure whether to raise this as a bug, and if I did, what to actually raise it against.

On my current Oneiric install, running on a samsung NC10 - I have found that in day to day use Unity is actually more responsive and usable than Unity-2d.

This seems to defeat the point, of unity 2d being more lightweight.

I'm also concerned that the user experience may be diminished if someone thinks 'I have a low specced PC, I should use Unity-2D' and then finds it more laggy than Unity!

Please advise what to do about this.

Kind regards,

Oneiric is under development release, so maybe this is the problem. It have some problems to resolve. All you can do is open a bug, I think, or wait for update that fix this problem.. When I've tried it, the 2D was more faster than 3D.

Can you help with this problem?
