Super hires is still useful for still images, though.

On ECS. On AGA you have 256 colors and HAM8 in all modes. However, productivity will be pretty slow with 256 colors or HAM8. Productivity and those other double scan modes are still great for text editing where you don't need many colors (16 colors is fine for syntax coloring, for example).

Definitely. Should actually be trivial to implement. That it has to be turned on in the Prefs is just stupid, because you've already told the OS that you want to use those modes. Makes no sense.
