It may be displaying on a graphics card, but that doesn't mean it's really using it - it'll still be using Chip RAM, as it'll be using the original OS3.0 routines... so it'll be just as slow as AGA. Hence why it's so much faster under SS which uses RTG routines.

I can confirm that simcity 2000 can be promoted with modepro to use graphics card, but it is still very slow.

Installed and configured fblit gives huge speed up for all of these kind of games, napalm etc, screen scolling is allmoust smooth with it 640x512

Does Fblit also help RTG users that are using Modepro to promote games to their graphic cards?

FBlit uses aga, so it helps with pal hires

And probably conflicts with RTG.

I just ran SimCity 2000 through ShapeShifter with the super fast MuEVD video driver on my AGA A1200 and ran the patched Amiga version (with FBlit and BlazeWCP running) and they're both around the same speed.
