Well Yep sort of.. I dont have one personaly for my tests, but we do have
easy access to an 040 based system....
The C2p Conversion is unlike all the other methods i have seen to date.
The engine will contain multi versions of the c2p'er all opt'd for each
My results at present.. are a lot better than i had ever imagined

True again... iTs just that small dividing factor ... Having to code it. ;-)
Anyway, when we release our Reality V2.0 AGA (A complete recode of our
first engine - thank GOD!) i think people are in for a big shock......
( well i hope so anyway;-)
We are planning GFX card versions as we speak.
The engine at present is NOT a doom styled , it's based upon id's
blade stone engine.....

Well we will try.. if we can pull it off, and get some positive feedback
about realityv2.0 well then the PC doesn't look so atractive anymore.
