Thank you for your interest :).

 About the Grunt(tm), the demo runs well on cards above (and including) GeForce2's (or equivalents). It actually runs pretty well on a RivaTNT2 but it's far from ideal - at least here at home :) - I get 30-40 FPS on static scenes, but it can drop to 5-7 FPS when the particle system kicks in with over 800 particles per missile trail, or when visualizing lots of objects - using a TNT2.

Thanks! It's great to hear some feedback (especially when it's positive :)))).
