On screen modes with more than 256 colors, the depth settings only restricts the number of pens, not the number of colors. You should always set the depth to maximum on these screens. The depths setting is only meaningful for palette-based screen modes, not for truecolor modes.

The problem with MagicWB (and other 8 or more color icons) is that they use the first 8 (ore more) pens while prefs/palette can only lock the first four and the last four pens of the screen.

This means on a screen with a depth of 3, prefs/palette can lock all 8 palette entries (pens) and mwb icons show correctly. But if the depth is greater than 3, prefs/palette only locks the first four colors of the icons and the other four can be changed by the system as needed.

FullPalette is able to lock all colors individually, so you can use it to set MagicWB colors (pens 4 - 7).

The same ist done by MagicWB-Daemon which comes with the original MagicWB package.

ClickForColors just sets a new prefs/palette preset. So it has the same limitations as prefs/palette itself.
