Assuming you start with a modular blanker like Garshneblanker, you just need to find compatible collections like LotsaBlankers that work with said engine.

I've yet to find a comprehensive package though.

The biggest blanker collection I know of is the one in AfAWB.

To replicate it you will need to start with Madhouse:

http://aminet.net/search?query=madhouse

Then import all the Blitzblank, Swazblanker and Garshneblanker modules:

http://aminet.net/search?query=blitzblank
http://aminet.net/search?query=swazblank
http://aminet.net/search?query=gblank

and throw in a few extras via the execute module.

Or you could just copy the lot from AfAWB.

It's a little bit more complicated than I made it sound.

You will need MUI installed then:
Copy the complete Madhouse drawer to SYS:
Copy WBStartup/Enabled/Madhouse to wherever you want to start it from.
Copy S/Madhouse.key2 to SYS:S/
Copy these from Libs: to Libs:
blitzblank.library
Garshnelib.library
madblankersupport.library
matrix.library (not sure about this one)
swazblanker.library
swazconfig.library

Copy prefs/env-archive/madhouse.prefs to prefs/env-archive
You will obviously need to modify the prefs to work on your system...

You will also need the amigamesartl libraries for the software 3D blankers

Libs:
glut.library
mesamain.library
mesadrivers/amigamesartl
outputhandlers/dl1
outputhandlers/dl1plus
outputhandlers/quickcolor
outputhandlers/grey

prefs/env-archive/AmigaMesaRTL/Outputhandler
prefs/env-archive/AmigaMesaRTL/Window

...and Warp3D if you want to use the glMatrix blanker.

this sounds really complicated! is there a bootable .hdf version of afawb preinstalled,
where i might be able to try out all these blankers without having to install anything?
something like amigainabox used to be, only amigaos 3.9 cd needed for copyright files?
being complete and bootable, after files from amigaos 3.9 cd have been installed to?
ready to use, because i don't want to mess up my main workbench installation, yet.

Is this what you require?

I think you still require a full OS 3.9 installation. So you won't find that laying around linked here as per board rules.
But you might just get away with these files only.

i was not asking for copyright material, instead i'm looking for something without copyright files,
just requiring amigaos 3.9 cd which i own to be installed for ready to use, like amigainabox did.
or old amikit versions which were free, did it the same way. finished, only without copyright files.
better workbench does the same, i reckon. asking for amigaos 3.1 disks to complete installation.
so no breaking of board rules intended or necessary.

I remember using BlitzBlank from Aminet a long time ago and thinking it was pretty nice. I think it had some demo limits though; no idea if it was ever made free.

Did yo unot read my message through?

What I linked to is the Afawb stuff (I htink) without the os 3.9 stuff.
All I said is that you still need that to proper install it. I wasn't accusing anyone of anything.

(But you did ask for a preinstalled afa which would mean it includes os3.9 since you cannot install afa without an os)
