Really? PicassoIV or UAE driver or any? You may need to enable some tweaks, but you can make it work for sure.

No, with KickStart 3.1.4 "A1200" PicassoIV or UAE driver does not work if you use an A4000 "RTG" configuration.

Anyway I think everything is normal, the same thing happens with KickStart 3.1 "A1200", even here you can not start an RTG A4000 system.
To run an A4000 RTG system you need the KickStart 3.1 "A4000".

This happens on WinUAE but I think it's the same thing on a real A4000, A1200 and A4000 even if they look the same, in reraltà they are not.

I have a cronjob running on a webserver. It's just a shelll+awk script that downloads the first page of this thread, searches for the attachments, downloads them, unpacks them, and makes the various icon.library files available for download from my systems.

So, that explains now, why there were nearly 1500 downloads of my build 511 here in only 8 weeks, much more than I usually would expect. Kolla's cronjob probably downloaded my attachments every few hours. And I thought I had sooo many new followers ... (no, just kolla)

Yes, I know. But you and the Italian users are belonging to the 200-300 "normal" downloaders of an update, the people I can really "count" on.

Oh, hehe, sorry about that

It's not possible to count unique IP addresses?

I'm not the owner or operator of EAB, how should I get the IPs?

Try to parse the build numbers of my updates in your script to avoid downloading things again and again.


@AMIGASYSTEM
Yes, I already had a look at BootWB, because the OS 1.x icon.library code is interesting for me, although I will probably never use it.

But that icon.library was made with the intention to keep it as short as possible in order to save disk space and in addition it even contains a few instructions (LoadWB, EndCli) for executing it from the startup-sequence. So, you can not replace it with any other icon.library.

Good point, I will do that if you start bumping versions again. For now I have disabled the cronjob.

Not sure, if ever and when the next updates are coming. There's nothing planned yet.

------------------------------

This thread can be closed now.

No further comments from me, not even by PM or email, although there was nothing going wrong here, just some private reasons to finish this project, but it seemed to be done anyway.

Many thanks for all the feedback over the years and the support by EAB, RCK and the moderators! My user account can be deleted.

(Sorry, but I have no access to my money anymore to make a donation and no PayPal account either)

@PeterK

Thank you very much for you hard work over these years.
Your efforts were not in in vain, I for one, do apreciate them.

I understand that you feel this project is finished. You have done a lot.

Please don't leave, stay.

And who knows maybe you will find some other project you could dive in.

Either way, I wish you the best.
