Hi Glide,
thank you for the review and for the space you continue to offer for publication.

This time it was particularly difficult to find the right compromise for a good acquisition.
At the resolution of 1600x1200, with the Glide api, problems begin to arise that I was able to solve, in part, by bringing the image refresh to 75Hz.

The result is good but, as always, we aim to get the best in this case too.

Let's see with will go with the next Gameplay.:)

Se you.
I am sorry for my English ;) :D
