The 1.3 retro theme for os 3.9 would be cool.

My first post on EAB!

I managed to trash my Classic Lite install so instead of opening the case and getting the CF out I thought I would serial the System.zip and real_amiga_install.adf over.

Unfortunately the adf included with lite seems to be broken. Winuae can read it but writing to disk using transadf from the A1200 gives an NDOS disk which doesn't boot. I tried several writes and downloaded a fresh copy from the website but no luck.

Someone here also seems to get the same problem:

Another issue is the Real_Amiga_Install.adf file. If I extract this file with ADF-Blitzer it creates a No-Dos disk.
My way round it was to mount it in Winuae and copy the contents out to the A1200. Then format-install a floppy and copy the files to it. This got me going.

Anyway thanks for classic wb it is absolutely amazing.

Just tried the 24 bit version of iBrowser on CWB AVDSP and it works fine but the only thing thats annoying is its a demo so only works for 30min and you can't register it at the moment thats what it says on there site.."IBrowse 2.4 is temporarily unavailable for purchase. Apologies for any inconvenience." but that been there for a long time..??

(anyone got a key) - JOKE..lol

I may be going mad but... where is the "Execute Command" pull down that exists in Workbench 3 found in classic Workbench? It must be hidden within the Scalos menu system some where...?

Thankyou Bloodwych for absolutely amazing newOs experience for amiga ! Just quick question, to start avi with doubleclicking icon (ACTION player) i had to enable write,executable and script bit for S/Start-ACTION.rexx file and rename "C/Action" file to "C/Action_" before it works. Is that a known bug or do i have to install everything again to make sure ?

Thankyou !

I just wanted to throw out a HUGE Thank You to Bloodwych and everyone else involved in the project!

I'm 30+ and a retro gaming collector. I'm also a huge nerd and I love learning stuff about platforms I really didn't get much experience from as a kid/teen.

I mostly played on videogame consoles. Had friends that had both Amiga and C64 platforms but I never really managed to do anything besides play the odd game. Later I jumped on the PC-bandwagon (albeit XT/AT-machines as late as 94 despite there being fancier machines out there, so I know my way around DOS to this day)

I've owned an Amiga 1200 with an accelerator board now for about 3 years and since I haven't had much experience before it's been a lot to take in both in terms of hardware and software quirks.

Initially I tried ClassicWB but felt it added too much features and I wanted to learn the basics first and set up my own system. Which I did, after a few mental breakdowns.

Last week or so I've been obsessed with taking it to the next level and I'm running ClassicWB ADVSP and both an internal 4GB CF-card and another card in the PCMCIA-slot(fat32). I must say I'm hugely impressed with how many problems it takes care of and still manages to conserve system resources. Not only has ClassicWB in itself helped me understand this wonderful platform a bit more but also has the huge amount of posts here relating to it, many if which are from Bloodwych himself.

So once again, thank you for helping me getting to know a platform I know wish I had been more active on back in the day =)

Nice find, I have now fixed it. Thanks for the heads up.

Thankyou for all your hard work on ClassicWB, without you, many Retro gamers would not be enjoying their Amiga's as much as they are today

Hi,

I have here an Amiga 500 Rev. 6 with 1MB Chip Ram, ACA500, Blizzard 1260, 128MB Fast Ram (68060.library and 68040.library (dummy) in Libs installed).

When I try to boot up the classic Workbench Full I get this error message:


How do I have to change the parameters so starting with the ACA500 is possible?

The same CF card with Classic Workbench boots up on a AlfaData - Alfa Power IDE with 8MB perfectly!

Thank you very much for your help!
Kind regards,
Reini

PS: It doesn't work to comment out the LoadModule line.

Delete scsi.device from Devs, you don't need it assuming you use update IDE driver option on the ACA500.
