Ah, but I think as long as the regular commands are actually crunching data, it should be at the speed of the rest of the program. BASIC programs execute at 15MHz if possible, so it makes no sense to draw a rectangle at 6MHz using dim(29 then to have it switch back to 15MHz mode to execute BASIC code :) At least in my opinion it makes sense that way...

That's what I think too. :)

It's also better for new users who want full speed without having to set it.

In the last update, I made ReCode start at 6MHz with the idea that it will run at the same speed on all calcs, initially. The user can then use Full if they need to. Also, a few commands are executed at 6MHz even in 15MHz mode for timing purposes or simply to save power as that was a concern :)

Nice, I like it this way, it saves space and raises speed :D

:) I am trying to make my code smarter, now. There are in fact times when you want the calc to be slower and I tried making it so that at those times, BatLib is slower

6 MHz seems good to me. Games will run at similar speed on all calcs and there will be less risks of glitchy LCD results on certain calcs.
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF
