So, three of us use the module regularly for testing. I have a fairly powerful laptop with 2 GB ram (not sure about video memory), but the other two have pretty typical, older vintage laptops. Two of us use two monitors and the other just the built-in laptop monitor.

I have been quite surprised at how well VASSAL 3.2 and tiling has held up, even when all six maps are loaded into a scenario, which we do quite often. The biggest, obvious impact is if we zoom or scroll far and wide a lot, we start to get occasional "white-outs" of the map that last a few seconds before tiles are repainted. On rare occasion a white out might last 10 to 15 seconds. But it really hasn't been more than a very mild annoyance.
