Rendering Speed Problem
The Jasmine release of Croquet seems to be about half the speed of the Solar version. Andreas said he thought it might be due to the objects like the TFlag constantly running in the background, but I don't think so. In addition, the PC version seems to be running much faster than the Mac, where in the past they were about equivalent. Again, not sure why. I don't think that the rendering pipeline is that much different between Jasmine and Solar. I thought it might be a texture issue, but turning off texturing entirely makes little difference in performance. The good news is clearly once we fix this, everything runs a lot faster.
