We have had reports of some animations and tweens (movements of things on screen) moving too fast on some mod files and computer setups. If you see this behaviour, please let us know, including the specific pack/song/etc., your PC specifications and operating system, and what was running too quickly. "We may have hit the crescent of the hill on math optimisations and it's now giving some quirky behaviour. I have not seen it here on my machines, nor on any of the Linux boxes I've tested, (or my MK6 cab) but please let us know if you see anything 'odd'." - Squirrel
