Thanks Matthias. I would like to at least get it to build to run on Einstein.
Getting it to build = >5hrs of time. Seeing it on the Newton -- priceless

> NTK, IIRC, decompresses whatever picture resource you have and stores it in the native Newton format. For a 320x200 image in 16 grays, that would be 320x200x4/8 = 32k per image. The sound is also stored in a similarly uncompressed way. So I assume that your 4MB sound is "decompressed" int 8MB of 16bit sound, and the remaining memory is you image and your program.
