YES ... why don't you test? Got no DOS (evil grin) ?

NO. Same BUG with XP and HX ... NOT a HX BUG :-)

(HX bugs are bunched elsewhere: bttr-software.de/forum/board_entry.php?id=7492)

> PNG is supposed to compress things already

but the existing PNG's inside ATOM are poorly compressed and
have junk CHUNK's (even PHYS !!!)

> a smaller palette should not make a big difference

It does. And you could have 1 palette for the complete app,
rather than a separate (same or de-facto same) palette in every PNG file.

> WAV sound better at 44 kHz 16 bit than at 22 kHz 8 bit

The WAV's are < 400 ms ... not hours of HiFi music ... you
won't hear the difference (we badly need a double-blind test ...)

> You could use OGG and decompress to RAM... (evil

Not worth for that little amount of sound (you might Deflate
them ... if it helps ... or DELTA-filter before Deflate)

100 KiB (RTFB)

2.5 KiB but 8086 ASM, not C ;-)

In what function does it crash? Does it crash with every executable?
