Chris:
Derek(Warmaster's) code is available at his site;
I'd like to see _your_ code, though. Send it to me if you please...

Is it faster to go from a gworld directly into the screen?
Can you even do that? Do you bypass copybits?

If you were to open a window the size of the screen, and hide the menubar,
you wouldn't have to catch as many events as you would if you were to leave
it there; you wouldn't have to catch menu events, for example.
