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.)
