Looks like I've bitten off a little more than I could chew in a week... but good progress has been made! Separating the graphics from the data turned into a little more work than I thought it would be. But, oh well... The initial results though, are fantastic! Movement is now smooth as silk! Woohoo! No more jittery movement. No more waiting for chunks to load. Totally worth all the effort. And it's a huge booster for slower machines as well! I think I'll need about another week to get it all straightened out... stay tuned!
