Enabling CPU-Intensive Features



Q: Are there some hidden features that might be useful on more powerful systems?



A: Yes. Amiga Forever and C64 Forever can make use of some features that are disabled by default because of a high risk of not translating into a positive user experience. For example, in early beta versions of the software there used to be a "4X" button to more than double the playback size in windowed mode. However, because positive feedback was mostly silent and negative feedback about slow performance was prevalent, the feature was removed.

If you feel like you have a more powerful computer, and accept that features like 4X playback size and skin translucency can have a negative impact on performance, feel free to create and set the following DWORD registry value to 0:

  • HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Cloanto\Amiga Forever\2009.0\CPUIntensiveFeatures

If using a newer version, replace "2009" with the major version number.
