Yeah. It's actually running as a character schedule, whereas the intro
bypasses the normal main loop.

Actually, the main loop itself should be independant of CPU speed (to a
certain amount). However, so far the text_bubble duration is not, and that
is slowing everything down on the box here.

Okay, that sounds good. I'm currently seeing what can be done about the
bubbles. If I get them sync'd, it would be easy to add a little delay so
at-demo-9 plays once completely before at-demo-a plays.

That would be silent then.

Again, if I get the scrolling sync'd, it could be sped up another 15s,
which would mean that at-demo-2 is just long enough.

Well, the credits use that little CPU that they work in realtime on my
P200 even. ;) That's why the music is matching perfectly there.
