Thanks for a quick reply, but it looks like I was caught out by the inexplicable "Overlay doesn't work when placed at (0,0)" clause again. Fixed now; but interestingly, HWA doesn't seem to speed up drawing with the overlay object.
HWA can only speed up in-house graphics displayed by it's personal graphics engine. The overlay object is probably still working off of the processor performance of the game, which the HWA build has no effect on what so ever. You'll have to talk to the person who made the overlay object and see if you can ask them to make a version that fits itself into the hardware graphics engine in the HWA build, so you can see an increase in performance.
Hey, thanks for replying again. So is there no way of drawing lines in MMF that will utilise HWA? I've run a few tests with other extensions but all give the same result - no HWA support. Isn't it time such simple features were included in MMF?
