||Performance is very inconsistent on 0.9.7+ even using speedhacks, but with revision r4865+ the MTVU speedhack provides a ~100% increase in speed. Without MTVU enabled, a 3.8Ghz Quad CPU drops to 40 FPS when looking at the school or running about in town. With MTVU enabled, the game runs at about 90 FPS in these same areas.||Squall leonhart|
