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.

Ok, I tested again and timed it myself. The time for demo2.dem (320x240) to finnish was around 47-48 sec. and frames (same everytime) was 985 giving an average above 20fps. Still not bad considering the slowdowns when fading (quess it was around 30-33 if it would not have the slowdowns?). This time I must be right, right?
(Still pretty fast I must say.)
