Is there any way to make this go any faster? I did this testing on a 450 PIII with a 16 mb TNT video card, so I doubt the method I used will go much faster on any other computer.
What I am trying to accomplish in the end is a console-like screen though which the 2D map behind it can be somewhat seen. If there is a way to just, say, make the 2D map a dark tint of blue, that would be great, but I really don't even know how to do that.
Thanks for any help.
