ECS typically had 1meg chip ram and could switch between the two modes, OCS Amigas couldn't.

But i'm sure there is a mod you can do to the board to achieve the same thing.

If you A500 is ECS then i'm sure it can, certainly we could in Europe.

If its OCS then no, but there is a hack you can do to the board if memory serves to change it.

Well to be fair to the Bitmaps, they didn't program Xenon 2, The Assembly Line did.

And the way Xenon 2 was programmed is how a modern brute force PC would do it, i.e. redraw everything onscreen.
