[Papervision3D] Performance Issue with flip down tiles

The best way to fix your performance is to make some guesses about what is
slowing it down and then try removing those elements one at a time to see
what effect it has on the frame rate. Then, try to figure out how to
optimize each piece and add it back in.
In your case, I would think that all of that dynamic textfield handling is
probably hogging your performance. So, I would completely remove all of the
textfield rendering and just flip blank tiles to see how my performance
improves. If it improves dramatically, then I would figure out how to rework
the text to render more efficiently. If it makes almost no difference, then,
I would look elsewhere for performance improvements.
Sometimes it's one big thing that makes the difference. Other times, it lots
of little things.
