I _know_ I have it somewhere and will send it over when I find it.

Actually, the speed difference between Quake on a grapics card and without
one should be almost negligable. The chunky to planar conversion routines
should work as fast as a plain copy to the old bus on an AB040. The disabled
Falcon screen generation will help a bit with the bus bandwidth, but in
320x200 mode, the time taken for blit to the screen is still minor compared
to the rest of the work being done.

I'd be surprised if the normal 3-4 fps jumped to more than 4-5 or so with a
graphics card. Has anyone tested it?
