In reply to Comment 5 (Johan Forsberg):
Most modern 3D games use VMEM on the PC and those games certainly don't run at 0.1fps!
I guess it's just easier to use VMEM instead of having to write custom streaming routines that keep loading certain parts of a huge 3D level into RAM.
In any case, VMEM is a KEY FEATURE and much more useful than some of you might think...
I'm not saying that many applications and/or games couldn't be written without relying on VMEM, however, as most PC titles are using it, porting software to the AmigaOS would be much more difficult than it would be otherwise.
