Running at 30 fps on average. Blast Processing ;)

(But to be honest, it's been a hell lot of work to get the renderer run that fast. It's not the renderer from OD2 / Red Eyes, I wrote it from scratch for this compo to test new technologies)

@Trixter....Just do it!

Too many hurdles and not enough free time. Writing the polyfiller is something I've always wanted to do and would be the fun/easy part, but other stuff (640K data file that must be parsed natively on a system that doesn't match endian-ness, lack of color, lack of raw fill/memory speed) would just result in something slightly underwhelming.

286+VGA seems like a valid target though (mode-x for fillrate wins), but there's someone in the thread already working on that.

Edit: Endian-ness not actually a problem now that I look at the data file.

Hm... of course as soon as you think about these things, solutions start to form. I'll think about it some more.

Use this as a starting point to decode the bin file:

I'm updating the SVG version to use scene1.bin directly.
