No, it's not just you. You should try it on a 50Mhz 030. (: However, gradient backdrops can cause some sluggishness if they're behind a lot of other stuff. Try removing the ones in Rebtris and see what difference it makes. (Assuming you can edit it that is - I tried to a while back and it wasn't easy. I think there's checks in the code for such tampering.:) Also, find the demo100.r script, (which is the "demo" you run from the console - it'll be in your public/ directory), and comment out the box animation effects. ie this bit... view layout [ backdrop effect [gradient 0x1 100.100.100 0.0.0] style button button 200 box 100x100 "Temporary Demos" ; rate 10 effect first effs feel [ ; engage: func [f a e][ ; if a = 'down [quit] ; if a = 'time [ ; effs: next effs ; if tail? effs [effs: head effs] ; f/effect: first effs ; show f ; ] ; ] ; ] pad 84 button 100 "" [browse] Your should see the script's buttons spring to life after that. Don't run it when you're online though, as REBOL might just download the original again. Flashturbation is the term for excessive use of Flash on websites. I wonder what the equivalent word for excessive use of effects in View will be? (; -- Carl Read [carl--cybercraft--co--nz]
