If I understand correctly we're pretty close to a win port anyway, OS X
is being tried and so is Solaris. ..Palm anyone? :P

My non-expert understanding is that we won't have that problem!

Speaking of our graphics requirements don't forget that we'd want some
real-time colour manipulations for weather FX and such. Also I've been
wondering about spells and battles (Alex: Nooooooooo!) it would be neat
if we could have Adonthell generate some cool fx likes sparks and fire
works. Does anyone here know the G-Force visulisation plugin for XMMS /
WinAmp? Something like that layered on top of the map gfx would be
perfect IMO.
