Background Image

After loading my background image (180kb), object scaling, moving etc is painfully slow.
I am running Win2000 pro Build 3, on a Dell GX110, P4, 800mhz with 512mb RAM.

Any idea on what may be causing the slow down?

your graphics card doesn’t like how the texture is drawn
[it isn’t drawn the same way as a textued plane would be]

other than getting a new graphics card you can try:
changing your color depth [16 bit works better on intel cards]
also, updating your drivers

a optiplex GX110? I’m on one of those right now… cept, it isn’t a mythical P4 running at a measly 800Mhz (it is a p3 running at 733)
