I installed amikit on a spare pc to be sort of a dedicated amiga. I plan to use it for games, older 3d amiga stuff and whatever.
The old doorstop pc being concerted is a 1200mhz amd, a compaq actually.
I thought that would be plenty for this but it seems a bit slow. I mean its not slow, just not as snappy as I'd hoped it would be, or is on my 3ghz main windows pc.
On the old 1.2 ghz machine its okay, but I wonder if I can't get it a bit snappier with some tweaks, and can someone help me with tips and tricks to tune both windows and amikit for a bit better performance?
Amkit runs nicely with a stripped down windows xp install, but does anyone know how I can squeeze the windows xp host down to procide maximum cup power to amikit?
Interestingly, I had been using the built in video card, amkit ran crappy so I put in an agp accellerated card with gpu, now its much better but still I think I could get better performance out of it if I trimmed down all of windows.
I know I can use amikit as shell, but can you get back to a windows desktop if need be (to fix something) once you do that?
Is there a way to remoce some of the eye candy from amikit so the system will run better?
And one last thing, how can I remove the window decations and just have standard windows like os3.9? I mean, you know, oldschool window frames is what I'd prefer, and I imagine this would speed things uip.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts, I am immensely enjoying this pc.
Who would have thought a pc could be so much fun, I guess it just needed amikit!
