uff... I am in exactly opposite situation. I mean I quit Workbench a LONG time ago and now if I start AmiKit without DOpus I am completely lost ;)

Therefore, I am afraid, you have to customize and adjust AmiKit configuration (if you run it without DOpus) by yourself. AmiKit was designed to run DOpus from the very beggining, sorry.

IMHO I believe it is worth to learn how to work with DOpus, you can get the basic idea from Total Amiga magazines, I put the links on "Features" and "Tips&Tricks" pages of English AmiKit site.

With regards to icon-speedup-patch: it is already included in AmiKit. AfA_OS makes the loading of icons as fast as "IconBeFast" program. The routines are the same in both programs anyway.

AfA_OS makes the loading of icons as fast as "IconBeFast" program.

Of course, you don't need IconBefast in case you have AfA_OS installed
already with the "Fast Icons" switch enabled in the AfA_OS preferences.

No, the routines are absolutely not the same in both speedup-patches !
AfA_OS has been written in very good optimized C-code for portability.
IconBeFast is a pure 68k assembler patch, which is totally independant
from the AfA_OS source code. Only the idea to patch "ObtainBestPenA"
to speedup the icon drawing is the clever trick which was introduced
by Bernd Roesch with AfA_OS first before I used it for IconBefast, too.
