From Apex-Design web site: One new and one updated city are now available for Payback in the Extra Maps section. Also, the PPC upgrade is taking longer than expected because I'm trying to make sure it uses all the available CPU power. I don't expect to release it for another month but I hope you'll agree that the wait was worth it when it finally is ready.

=) Oki, I stand corrected, I will never use benchmarking again (unless impress on lame PC-owners). But the Quake test shows that calculations is pretty fast on JIT UAE (don't really know what result 060 got, but I'm rather sure that it wasn't near 32-33fps and 32-33fps is including the slowdowns that fading colors makes to JIT UAE). If UAE get rid of the slowdowns when fading I think that the Quakedemo test can show a more accurate value of the computing speed (is there any way to disable that feature in Quake?).

Starting with rev2 (the one I have installed) the sound works like a charm on my setup (and it has not done that in previous versions). As for scrolling or anything else with games I haven't tested so much (just tested Payback some minutes).
