I spent quite a bit of time running Combat when doing my
recent extended disassembly, including on a real 2600.  There
are no perceptible delays in the sound effects, they are
very snappy.  I suspect Win2K is transparently buffering
things, a bad habit it no doubt inherits from other aspects
of the WinNT core.
