Great example of how much difference the AMMX registers make!  In this example, 4X faster!

Thank you for the example video showing AMMX acceleration.
We are all looking forward to this new Amiga game!

I'm guessing sprite scaling and rotation calculations could be done with AMMX instructions. Would be cool addition to the already cool demo.

From the video clip:
"The results were excellent: graphics rendering speed increased by 4x using AMMX, compared to the hand-written 68040 assembler routines!"

So I assume this is the already optimized AMMX version.
