How slow is "very slowly"? There is a deliberate "dissolve" effect, so it isn't instantaneous if that's what you mean, but if it's taking more than a second something's seriously wrong. It shouldn't take much more time than the other transition effects, e.g. the "iris" effect when going from one room to another in some of the games.

In the case of Fate of Atlantis, I'm sure it was there in the original as well because I can see it when I run the original interpreter in DOSBox. (Last time I checked it wouldn't run Sam & Max, so I can't try that one.)

Of course, running it on DOSBox is probably the equivalent of running it on a 286 or 386. On modern hardware, the dissolve is so fast you won't even see it in the original interpreter. ScummVM deliberately tries to do it in constant time, regardless of CPU speed, since that was probably the original intention.

I agree with erik. The fades are in normal speed on my G3/500 and G4/400 machines, BTW (so I figure an Athlon 1.1 Ghz shouldn't have troubles.

Sorry, I found the problem. There was a hidden background task hogging my CPU. Works fine now.
