ab3d 2 slow

not sure if this is the right place to put this message,
I am using uae 0822 on my athlon 1 gig,256 mb,voodoo3 2000(dont laugh) ab3d 2 works fine but very slow, I would have thought it should run much faster than it does.
anyone help on the config I should be using?

Lightbulb Speeding up...

Your specs seem good enough for running AB3D2.

THE best way to speed up the game is to switch to the CPU/Chipset-tab in WinUAE. Here you can find a slider (I think it is called 'enable CPU-cache') which you can move from 0 Mb to 8 Mb. Move the slider to 8 Mb and now try to play the game again. bet it makes a huge difference.

Another option that can speed up the game is to disable the option 'Enable 100% Sound' in the sound-tab. The sound effects may not be synchronised anymore, but the game will run a lot faster.

What about 'Fastest possible' in CPU settings?

heres my config:
RAM= chip=2, fast=8, slow=512k, z3 fast=128, rtg=16mb
CPU= 68020+fpu, adjustable cpu/chipset =1, detect idle cpu=yes, jit settings= 8mb, hard flush=no, force settings=no, const jump=yes, no flags=yes, fpu support =yes.
DISPLAY=800*600/16 bit 60 Hz, correct aspect=yes, full screen=yes, display every frame, line mode=doubled
CHIPSET=aga(obviously), collision level=sprite only, fast copper=yes
SOUND=enabled 100%=yes, freq=44.1, stereo, interpolation disabled, buffer=3, lag=0.0%.
Do I really need the z3 fast ram and rtg enabled?
The display is the same as my desktop settings.
It doesnt seem to run quite as well as it did on my A1200 with accelerator, I expected to be able to run it in full screen at a reasonable rate.
Am I expecting too much? Any help would be lovely.

Turn off fast-ram and slow-ram. Also you don´t need rtg-ram if you don´t use picasso96.

set cpu-speed to "fastest possible".

set z3-ram to 32 mb or less (otherwise windows *could* be forced to use virtual memory.
