Unluckily the demand is large and the ship's treasure chest is already empty. I hope there will be no revolt and fight for the videos. [size=-7]Folks, keep calm, as far as I get some, I swear I'll leave you the rest.[/size]

Infinitely better although there are still a few just-perceptable steps but that might just be my ageing GF 440 graphics.

Wow! What a difference. I think the graphics with the window maximized look better on the aging P4 than they do on the new computer (running Fedora). No slide show effect at all. I'm not even sure I see the hiccup I used to see on an RPC. But that might just the general business of the background graphics.

Same here. Also still amazed that my older laptops can even run the graphics.

That fits so well I can now hear it in my head while viewing.

One of the things I enjoyed when getting this hack ready was seeing code like this:

#ifdef GET_SUED_BY_THE_BBC
# include "images/tardis.xpm"
# include "images/whologo.xpm"
# include "images/whohead1.xpm"
/* #include "images/whohead_psy.xpm" */
# endif /* GET_SUED_BY_THE_BBC */

Those xpixmaps were nowhere to be found, or else we could start our own pirate BBC BOINC project :-)

I just finished watching the two computers side by side (oh my head).

The old P4 (give me a bit to dig up the graphics hardware) is very smooth. It is comparable to watching the actual screen saver in Fedora.

The new Core is still fairly smooth. No slide show effect. But for lack of a better description, it seems to pulse just slightly. If I had to guess, I'd say it was about every second. But I didn't time it.

Looks good on my little laptop... there is a barley-noticable pause/step but certainly a vast (avast?!) improvement!

I like the true wormhole effect (after the two lines going into the square all blue tunnel effect. That wormhole, without any graphics in it I can stand for hours if needed. :)

Looks good, runs smoothly here. I also like the wormhole effect, would be great if it could change it's color while flying through it :-D

I've got some too. Absolutely smooth now.

Once in a 2-4 seconds there is some very short (1/5 or 1/10 or 1/15 secon) interruption, but I can see the same "thinking pauses" on other projects' graphic windows too, so it is posibly a side effect of the apps running at very low priority.
