When adding a device please note down whether fancy graphics run with (even small) or without lag. Typing {{tc|yes|No Lag}} means the device runs with no lag on Fancy graphics. Typing {{tc|no|Lag}} means the device lags moderately to heavily in Fancy, and typing {{tc|partial|Slight}} means slight lag on Fancy.
