I played around with the patched version and it loaded faster and ran perfectly. I am in the process of trying to tweak my tokens to see if I can squeeze a little more performance out of my set up.
The only thing I'm really looking forward to is the colored halo effect, besides the big one, layering. And of course, someday, individually assignable views would be the cherry on the whip cream of my sundae!
I'm going to run a few mock combats tomorrow and try some of my "custom" maps to see if there are any issues.
