so: does anybody have numbers?
Saying that Elite II was written on Amiga is plain wrong. David Braben was an ST fanboy, a lover of this machine, and as such made the game for ST, then ported accross to the amiga. That's why Frontier Elite II use mainly the CPU, it's shared code.

You don't know your classics heh ?
