Maybe in future we can try something like that.

Hmm, well I cant code for s*** but it sounds promising that someone has come up with a solution to this problem that many of us seem to find annoying (not just on Monkey neither).

If this was half a year ago, has there been a response from the devs? If so do you know the progress of this Dreadlau?

Yeh I guess it's probably better to redraw constantly because if you redrew after resize then it would look broken. Maybe ive been using too much Linux lately and it has a more efficient way of resizing which gives you an overshadow of the dimension you want and then it snaps to that position.

Yeh you might have a good point Dreadlau that people accept it as a norm. But on the other hand, im sure it wasn't this laggy when resizing on MM3 because before i had to reformat my computer, i had more scripts and things running on mm3 and things were a bit more silky smooth to resize than mm4 now.

I know for sure that the more scripts you use the laggier it gets if that helps.

I guess it's not that much of an issue, and i can live with it, but considering i and probably many others resize windows frequently, maybe you could consider a faster image rendering or something like that.

I was going to do a screencast of the issue but sometimes the screencast doesnt capture every frame so i've uploaded a video from my phone of how bad the issue is:

I have the same problem. It seems to have started with rev 1415. If I shift back to 1414 it's OK.

The distortion extends to any movement of the window or resizing. Again 1414 is OK while 1415 and subsequent revisions have the problem. If I go back to 1414 the problem is not present.

Bump, can anyone else reproduce this issue?
I have this issue on two machines, Vista and Win7 and I have slow resizing with both and skin elements taking ages to catch up.
