obviously i do agree, because i have made one. but the code that makes it work, and at 50fps, is ugly as hell.

back in the days of AMOS 1.3 i read an article about coding styles (did it actually come in the AMOS 1.3 box?) that said "spaghetti coding" was faster than structured coding, well it astounded me at the time but even in AMOS Pro it turned out to be right. Procedure calls are apparently very costly, don't ask me why, but that's why PuzCat's main loop all happens in one big procedure. So apologies to anyone who's tried to get their heads around it.
