I've never attached a profiler to Aurora, but I was a professional game programmer for about twenty years.  I'd bet good money that the performance issues on this game have very little to do with the choice of language and everything to do with using a relational database as the runtime store of game state.

Wouldn't SSD's/RAMdisks improve performance if this was the case?

I recall someone suggesting there could be a noticeable performance increase if you pop the db into ramdisk before loading Aurora.  At the moment I'm using a laptop that can't even handle the processor load so it's not worth testing :p.

I've tried that, didn't help.  That was on version 5. xx though, but I assume things haven't changed since then.

The economic/per 5day processing does use the hard disk heavily, but everything else is more cpu dependent.
