  1. Greetings to all, I am currently trying to write a strategy game and the problem that I am facing relates to a decision I must make: should I stick with bltfast or should I try to implement my own blitter using memcpy and locking/unlocking the surface only once per flip? I noticed that people in the internet are saying that there isn't much difference. In fact in case a video accelerator is present, bltfast is the best one can get. Others, however, say that a custom blitter could be twice or even three time as fast as bltfast! I would appreciate if you could spare some time to state your opinion on the matter, since I would hate to spend a great deal of time in something too "hairy" and not really beneficial. Cheers, G.
