Duncan,

I would be happy to do as you suggest. Assuming I use my current 64-bit OS, how do I achieve this? Won't openGL be 64-bit? What compiler flags do I use to force R to go 32-bit? This is not something I've done before.

Attached is a screenshot of what I get with the script that Yasir sent me.
