Right now we are experimenting with streaming levels since the biggest complain every single playtester had was that it used too much time loading. The current build streams the whole demo as you play through it dynamically. The catch is that streaming of course requires more memory than just loading chunks of the level into memory and them n playing them. So expect the demo to only load when the mod opens and then you are able to play through the full thing without loading a single time after that :)

I ran a test on a core 2 duo 2,53ghz with a geforce 9800M GTS (gaming laptop) and it ran almost without a hitch with the current build.
