Chocky, you missed my point. I was saying that 32k colours was generally preferable on VRPC to 16m or 256colours. Average users would most likely assume 256 colours would be faster than 32000, but (certainly in desktop apps), 32000 gives best performance level. This was really advice for potential RISCube/A6 customers, so they get the best out of their computers. 16million works nicely too, BUT 32000 gives best performance (at least in the tests I have run here).
