Ah okay, then so if using 3.1 on a 68000 those two instructions are useless (I am assuming NewIcons will drag the system down on a 68000 with 512KB). It seems I am better with DontShowIBorder.

Yes, the NewIcons patches are requiring a 68020 CPU anyway.
However, your new BetterWB release is really nice. Well done gulliver

Thank you Peter for your kind words.

I have received a bug report of icon.library 68000 on BetterWB, and was able to reproduce it:

Go to "Workbench => Backdrop" and then try to save this via
"Window => Snapshot => All"

=> this brings up the following error message:
"Error while writing Ram Disk: (212) object is not of required type"

Removing your icon.library fixes the problem

Hi gulliver, I tried the same thing on the ClassicWB 68k version running PeterKs 68000 icon.library and could not reproduce the error.

However this is with standard Workbench icons for a RAMDISK disk.info file, the pack is not using NewIcons, GlowIcons etc for disk.info files.

Also it is running RAMSnap to save icon and window positions for the RAMDISK. Do you have a similar RAMDISK snapshot utility?

Yes, the problem seems to occur with a standard workbench iconset. Somehow RAMDISK disk.info is screwing things.

No reason to use it gulliver, I was just listing the differences that may cause us getting different results with PeterKs lib.

On a standard install, RAMDISK doesn't have a disk.info icon until you Snapshot, but it is lost during reboots. RAMSNAP copies a disk.info icon back to the RAMDISK during boot, so perhaps that is the difference.

I just tried to remove RAMSNAP but still don't get the error. Must be something else.

I have narrowed it down.

The problem seems to be solved by adding the following line to the original 3.1 startup-sequence, just before the first list of assigns are executed.
Copy >NIL: ENVARC:sys/def_RAM.info RAM:disk.info

But then of course I need to use another RAMDISK disk.info, and not the default 3.1 one. Maybe I somehow screwed disk.info. Will check.
-------
Checked, I have no aparent reasons to believe I screwed the RAMDISK disk.info. I am clueless.

Note: I was blaming SetPatch and I was wrong.

Removing your icon.library fixes the problem
This error appears when you try to fix non-existing icons, in all those cases when only the internal default 4-color icons are displayed. There are two possible solutions:

You can install some suitable default icons in ENVARC:sys like def_disk.info, def_drawer.info, def_project.info, def_tool.info etc or ...

you can use CopyIcon from the tools subdir and replace the 4-color default icons with whatever you like to get a real icon which can be fixed.

The behaviour of the icon.library v40 may differ for the internal default icons.
Edit: Ok, it seems to be a bug in my icon.library, not converting default icons into real icons.

Hi gulliver,

Are there any plans to build this into BetterWB? I'm using the latest release with my ACA500 and like it very much

Hi fitzsteve,

Yes, you read my mind. I just want to make sure I am using latest versions. As soon as I get an answer I will build an update.

No, I must admit that I still didn't fix the snapshot problem on WB 3.0 / 3.1 for non-existing icons (not saving the internal default images as real icons). Shame on me!

Update to icon.library 46.4.330

Fixed position snapshot for deficons with only one image under WB 3.0 / 3.1.

No bugreport yet, but nevertheless, I think I made a mistake in my previous update by writing to the source diskobject structure. Please, use this newer version 46.4.330 to avoid possible issues with custom ROMs which usually don't like write attempts at all.

Hi Peter, with your lib the attached Icons are drawn shifted one Pixel to the right and down. With the original Iconlib this does not happen. Can you help me?
