depends... when setting view port to 1200x1000 game is at about 3-4 fr/sec...
(no scientific calculations... just a rough visual estimate)
considering a c compiled source might run at around 2000-4000 fr a second for a
similar display (with your typical one/two-year old gfx card) rebol is not very
fast... it would benefit greatly by using OpenGL internally for most of its
raster drawing, simply because all modern gfx cards support it in hardware. you
know OpenGL isn't just a 3d engine...
I know I'm always complaining... that's my lot, I just like to keep myself
realistic less than optimistic. There are things that ARE and things that could
be... fast view is still of the later...
BUT YOUR DEMO KICKS ASS !!! it definitely shows that rebol's DATA processing is
extremely efficient if used properly :-)
