A couple of missing objects in that patch here: xray.jit.boidsrender: No such object. jit.boids2d: No such object. In any case the ‘problem’ appears to lie in that the erase colour value in [ boids ] is leaving some of the preceding frame(s) in place – try @erase_color 0 0 0 1 instead to fully erase the previous frames.
