- This ingenious module enables VRAM cacheing on RiscPC's, to produce a significant speed-up on several demos, notably Iron Dignity and Fluoro. It is well worth downloading. Click here for a quick note I've written explaining the technicalities of what it's actually doing and why it speeds some things up and slows some things down!
- A module by Visions of the Impossible which allows the StrongArm's internal cache to be turned on or off using hotkeys (if you haven't got one of these already). Essential to run many older demos, including Blu. Switch cache off before running, switch cache back on again as soon as disc accesses have stopped and/or something's appeared on screen, usually works. As with AutoVCache there are little icons next to the demo reviews indicating which ones require this to run on a StrongArm machine.
- This module by Stanislas Renan is excellent for taking screenshots - it'll work on almost anything, in or out of the desktop, and 99% of the screenshots on these pages were taken using it.
