This demo was made for 060 ONLY so if you try it to watch on 030 and it runs slow there is nothing much that can be done about it. You wouldn't buy a VW Beetle and expect it to run as fast as a Ferrari F40, would you?

As Wepl has forwarded your request to me I'm gonna have a look. However, I'll only fix the timing (a.s.o) bugs of the demo. To make it run faster on your 1230 isn't just a matter of "recompiling the demo"! It would require the effects to be totally recoded as 030 and 060 require totally different optimising techniques! To cut a long story short, if you want Rain to run smooth, watch it on 060, as simple as that!
