Unfortunately the slowness is in the source (and Harware) and nothing you can do as a user will speed things up.
I am working on newer source that will hopefully help.

The hardware is something we cant do anything about, until Graphics acceleartors exist for the PocketPC we are restricted to the oldr slower games and speeds.
Im always tuning however so anything is possible.
