Thanks, this was all achieved 9 years ago (DOTT running on an A1200 and if you add an accelerator then also on an A500/A600 with ScummVM).

Update: I've now swapped to v0.70 which from my testing looks like the best one (still don't expect any miracles though!)

Interesting, looks like 3000 is too much for your CPU at the moment. This port really needs a faster core implementation to see the improvements I've made to the rendering code.
