    Enhanced Graphics Feedback

    The enhanced graphics mode was added really fast last minute. I wanted some feedback as too how it ran and what problems you found.

    Some say it ran bad on faster machines, but I've run it on much slower. Others said it worked good.

    Is it mainly just the animations on the fullscreen and video overlays, or is it the transitions are that running slow?

    Put your system specs when you mention how it ran...

    Personally I dont like it. It fades to slow. I guess thats because I have a fast system and im used to it switching very fast. If we could edit the fade time I would use it.

    Here are my specs.

    I have only tried on my fast P4/3Ghz, desktop PC at home, and I see some weird artifacts every now and then when transitioning from one screen to another. Other times I briefly see the underlying main screen 'flash' briefly before showing the new screen.

    Overall a nice touch, but it annoyed me right away when I noticed the artifacts etc., so I turned it off. I like the snappy feel anyways, so no effects is best for me.

    How do you enable or disable the advanced graphics? I had a look through the settings and could not find it anywhere?

    All I noticed with the enhanced was the fading, and IMO is fades too slow, so there's too much waiting between menus.

    I'm on a P4-M (the centrino one, i forget the exact nomenclature) 1.6GHz, 1 gig ram.

    p4-m can not be centrino, it would have to be a pentium m..

    I ran this on my pentium m laptop 1.73, 2 gigs ram.. it works fine... hard to say weather I really like it or not, but it's kinda cool... I doubt it would be missed at all though if it wasn't available or gave any issues.
