thanks for that. i will do another build tonight when i get home.
i did find your patches after i sent the email last night.

what are the differences between the "WINDOWS:" and "DIRECTX:" output types?

i did try both and while "WINDOWS:" would *work*, it displayed this 
horrible sync problem. the "DIRECTX:" output was just so horribly broken.
i assume your patches fix that up.

why are there both?
