Oh, I see, veeery nice indeed :)

So, now what about Sam & Max? :D

Sorry for continuing OT...



Yep Sam & Max is coming, it's what I'm working on now ;)

Anyway back on topic.....

Cool glad you guys like this little guide.  I'm not an expert or anything, just wanted to give a write-up of what I've discovered so far.  

Obviously WB will always run quicker with less colours but I wanted to show that you can create a 'useable' WB in 256 colours without RTG.

Yep I've heard about SystemPatch and it's another option but I prefer to choose which patches I'm applying ;)

PS:Have you tryed systempatch 3.3? It does a ton of speed up patches on AGA, and already includes iconbefast and blazewcp.

 And FText. However, i have found that some of these patches perform a little faster than SystemPatch on 68020-68030 CPUs, according to AIBB benchmarks. Some SystemPatch routines are specially optimized for 68060, iirc, but work fine on all 020+ CPUs.

 SystemPatch gives you complete control on which patches will be installed. It's important to skip the loadseg and intuition.library patches by adding -loadseg and nointuition.

What resolution are you using ?
Seems very slow compared to mine ...
A1200, Blizzard 1260 + 64mb, Indivision AGA, Subway USB, 8GB CF-HD, PCMCIA network card, OS 3.9.
And a couple of A600\'s :).

Oh, me being blind/rude again, sorry :o
I don't have Fblit&Ftext and Iconbefast installed, might just try them, because when running 1024x768 OS 3.9 slow's down alot.

I forgot...

env-handler is really good on saving precious chipram and makes  booting, at least for me faster!

@NovaCoder

When you go into the 'looking good' patches, why no Birdie mention? I thought this was a normal staple for 68K WB? VisualPrefs can not add the backrounds to title areas or replace the window gadgets, is that correct?

Hiya,

Yep thats right but I didn't really get on that well with Birdie so I just used VisualPrefs to change the title bars as shown in the screen grabs.

Hiya,

I can't get the screen grabber to capture my nice 1024x768 properly :(

Anyone at the last Victorian Amiga users group meeting got a good look at it though!

trying, problems with sgrab and .png - will try some other format ...

To the new owner, whoever you are - increase our file upload sizes / demensions so we can see 1024x768 in all its glory.
