Default SlowAndSteadyAlice is same as Alice - 03-31-2007, 06:22 PM

I noticed that the Alice and SlowAndSteadyAlice executables have the same properties: location c:\Program Files\Alice\Alice; size 68MB. Does this mean they are the same program?

I'm sure there are other differences - maybe Gabe will reply with a better answer - but the main one is that slow and steady only does software rendering, while this is just an option with regular Alice. The practical result is you may loose some features that are only supported in your hardware if you run slow and steady. (I suspect the programs are the same size just because the other options are just disabled in the code - not deleted.)
