Quite why you persist in saying that VA runs slower than a real SA, I don't know. You've got a crap old PC, you already said it was only a 1.2, so frankly you're not in any position to know.

I personally don't give a damn about Omega. MD's poor attitude saw to that, long ago. Even if it was great, would you trust them any more? It's just two guys and they're probably working hard, sure, but why keep putting out the lies about when it'll be ready? The Omega maths don't work out, either. May be faster RAM, but it's shared with the dodgy unfinished graphics chip so has got to be slower than a RiscPC. When you're in big screenmodes the CPU's going to be totally starved for RAM access. MD still won't explain why they didn't just put a PC graphics card in there.
