hi, Just to let you know :) While it's been quite nasty (as usual) to get a new function going, the scaled_filtered_blit is now starting to work. Of course, it's still the 'be defined interface' one, but it's a start. In SVN it's still down and crashes the engine in most occasions. got to do a whole lot of testing to find out how to proper get that function to work in detail. Anyway: I'm glad to see it work! Just needed to share that info. ;-) Rudolf.
