Seriously, though, someone needs to take an Intel Atom N270 netbook, XP or Win7, or something slower, and benchmark Kid Chaos running on:
1) WinUAE 1.4.6,
2) WinUAE 1.5,
3) WinUAE 2.3.3.

I have *not* been able to get full speed on this Amiga 500(!) game on such a 1.6GHz machine with WinUAE 1.5 or higher, even with sound disabled and no matter what settings I use. 2.x is even slower in my experience. Granted, this is an extremely hardware-banging game with parallax scrolling coming out its ears, but it's 1.6GHz! 1.4.6 can even upscale PAL mode to 60Hz+ with no slowdown on such a humble netbook, while the original UAE recommended 233MHz! While I'm hoping I'm dead wrong and this is just non-optimal settings, unfortunately it looks like serious bloat to me. A real shame, since Toni has done some excellent work on WinUAE since then, which I can't affordably take on the road without a major performance hit.

(No I'm not coughing up for a Macbook Air with Bootcamped Windows 7 just to get low latency Vsync in WinUAE on the go...)
