You could set the priority lower... There are instructions on how to do that aropund here somewhere. Why does it matter to you?

Smiley I'd download it, but I only have ZIP support, not RAR,... what is that, a better ZIP?

About the timing problems:
SLEEP uses Windows' SLEEP that has a resolution of 15 mS in XP and 50 ms in 9x.

However, version 0.13(cvs) has a high resolution TIMER function so you could use the code below...Probably it uses the performance counter of the processor so it will not work with old plain Pentiums, needs Pentium Pro or better...

Code:

declare sub delay(byval ms as integer)
dim as single a,b
a=timer
delay 5
print timer-a
sleep

sub delay(byval ms as integer)
dim a as single
a=timer+ms/1000!
do:loop until timer>a
end sub


In Pentiums it will default to the old 1/18th second interval, I suppose...

A *.rar file is a compressed archive, much like a ZIPfile.  AFAIK, rars have higher compression ratios to zips.

WinRAR is also better than WinZip Cheesy

I see... i'll take a look around when i have more time to sift through the qbn forums. Wink

Why does it matter to me?

It's harder on the processor, it leaves nothing for other processes (disk defragmentations, antivirus scans) music can't play properly if say i want to listen to winamp at the same time.  Name the reasons.  I could probably think up several other reasons.  Main reason though, is that a processor running at %100 for hours can't be good for it.

I don't think that really matters, as long as you're not overclocked, it should be fine. It's never hurt my system anyway. Wink

Get 7-Zip: http://www.7-zip.org/. It will do rar files in addition to zip files.

i found that adding sleep 8 slows it down to a nice 100 fps, yet it only runs around 2-6 percent of my cpu now.
