        The problem with Imagecopy is that it doesn't work properly in
16bit, only 15bit. It's possible that it works in 16bit if you select a
specific graphics-card and don't let it autodetect. It's been a while since
I messed around with this so I really can't remember exactly how I
configured it.

        MPlayer has a similar problem in 16 bit. Use 15bit instead.

        You must definitely use this, otherwise you'll get lots of problems
with redraws.

sure. I

        If it's a Graphics Pro it has VRAM, if it's a Graphics Xpression it
has DRAM.

        IIRC somebody mailed me it. Magnus hasn't updated his pages the last
year or so (correct me if I'mm wrong).

        Nope, I really did mean 2.67 :-) I'll mail you the binaries later
tonight if you can't find them elsewhere.
