Having issues with AmiKit which was incredibly slow and sound stuttery with latest beta of WinUAE. Decided to try the setting of CPU 68060 CPU internal, and on Expansions, select as RTG Graphic Card a Piccolo SD64 Zorro II with the new screeny above and now everytime WinUAE crashes. I've reset it back and it still crashes.

Does anyone have a default config file for AmiKit that I can use through Winuae as it seems to have corrupted them :/


BETA 9 WINUAE

BETA 9 WINUAE
I'm sorry to tell that or it's really a problem or I'm the worst person to answer because I have the same problems now. I mean, not with AmiKit but with Classic Workbench too. Don't know when exactly the problem started but everytime it's worse with the sound, and today (installed WinUAE beta 9) very slow

Do you think it's the 2.7.0 beta that afects the system? Does it go slow also Classic Workbench on your system?

I thought -was almost sure- it was some problem on my Pc, as other programs also run slow, but now...

Edit: It has to be just my Pc. Videos go wrong, Steam slow... Just a bad coincidence.
Edit: I've done now several things on my Pc to recover the speed, but just closing Skype changes the Fps of Hippoplayer's scope from 30 to 47... Now the music plays right. And offtopic but I've fixed today my A1200's with black screen of death.

Will try classicWB as well just to test

I've seen in your other thread you have fixed the problem (that you had also with Classic WB). Will you try now the Rtg config?


EDIT: I've edited the original post fixing a bit and adding a readme and a WinUAE config .

I'm going to stick with ClassicWB UAE for the time being, spent hours futzing around with certain aspects today. Will get back to you

Hello,

I first want to say: Nice work!
Second, it doesn't work on my A4000 .
I did the following: I made a partition, 1.9GB and i installed a clean OS3.9.
Next I installed the idefix and Boinbag 1 - 4. To finalize i installed the package. But when i boot, the amiga keeps asking for a disk. Could it be a ide problem? If i cancel i only have DOS. So what can i do?

Thankx

Thanks fjutrackx and welcome. That problem has nothing to be with AmiKit but with the Hd installation on WinUAE -was it on WinUAE?-. Here you've got another thread with the same kind of problems and Classic WB: http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=71267

And don't make the booting partition with more than 1Gb (well, it will work with it or whatever). 800Mb for example is ok. I strongly recommend to use PFS3AIO as filesystem: http://eab.abime.net/showthread.php?t=64949. Also you don't need more than BB2. To use BB4 you should change the Startup-sequence. If you really want to use it I could post here a working one with BB4, and you must also disable "The" and don't know what else.

There is a Youtube video by Fitzsteve to setup a Cf as HD for installing CWB, but you can use -more or less- the first steps of it. [ Show youtube player ]

Hello again,

Thanks for the quick reply. The installation i'm talking about is a native, a real A4000, 2m chip, 128m ram, a 40GB ide harddrive and an ide cd drive, a flickerfixer, aminet card and if the install is finished also a retina Z3. 1st partition is 1.9GB FFS bootable, second one is SmartFS (The rest of the drive). So no windows things at all except to burn files on a disk which i open on my amiga. I installed BB4 since i had problems with the SFS. After the installation of BB3 and / or 4, the problems where fixed. That's the reason why.

Is the Hd shown using HDTools on the Install disk?

I would change the partitions as I've told you. PFS3AIO (PFS3DS so you forget about problems with >4Gb Hard drives) and 800 Mb for the first.

Edit: This s-s works here with BB4 on an A1200. I've commented a couple of commands that I will introduce with the update 05, and "THE" must be moved to the Disabled drawer on WBStartup:

@Retrofan. Do you have a configfile for WinUAE to put up on the Real AmiKit site. It's a hell to make a configfile from scratch for your Real AmiKit and maybe that's why i couldn't get Real AmiKit to work under WinUAE emulation.

I don't know if that's the case here but sometimes you need to rename your partition to System with Classic Workbench before you reset after installation, otherwise it will not boot. Maybe rename your boot partition to AmiKit before restarting.

Yes, you need to call your booting partition AmiKit. Attached an example of WinUAE config working with WinUAE 2.6.1. You have to change where you've got stored your files of AmiKit or introduce a real Hardrive or other.
EDIT: I've changed the config as it was crashing with WinUAE 2.7.0, now it works.


Edit: Just to comment that I've got the permission to use all the icons I need for my Dual Png Mattahan's Icons set Plug-in, as JKSketchy and BlackCatLove1 have also agreed to use his wonderful BlackCat as the icon I was needing for the AmiKit volume, and I have Mattahan's permission from the beginning. Thanks a lot

So I've got a complete installer, now just waiting for some betatester. PM's are welcomed

Edit: The installer will let you change all of your icons to the new ones but also, running it again you've got the option to completely restore your original setup. It will take 20 minutes or around each complete change though, so it's better -recommended- to try it first on WinUAE.

Edit: This is an Screenshot using also my previous Plug-in for RTG:

I've thought for the 05 update to add another Start Menu that can open camouflaged from ... Where?. Tic-tac, Tic-tac... LOL.

This is with it there. Look... Did you find it? Search more .

If you don't see it, search for the small vertical bar on the left of the logo on the title bar. The clickable icon is all the AmiKit logo image:



And this is opened, with another wallpaper:



This way you'll have the cleanest screen, but the menu will be there hidden on the title bar, and as it is the fastest menu ever created, you will have it ready when booting -fast-. Not only that, because as I've made two versions you can use one remapped to 16 colors or now also another using 256 colors if you use them.

Edit: I've edited my config for WinUAE as it was crashing with WinUAE 2.7.0. See previous post.

So I finally have (almost) everything working on my real Amiga. I do have one weird issue right now.

The dialogs are (mostly) looking like the attached image. Tried changing the themes around, and it seems to make it slightly better.

This is issue only shows up in the RTG resolutions. In 32 color mode (640x512) it looks just right.

Man it's difficult for me to fix your config for RTG, I said I had given all the support. I know you've installed more things for your hardware and updated to BB4.

The question would be when did you begin to have those problems, after what thing you installed. I suposse you didn't have it when you just installed it over a clean OS3.9 BB2. ¿? . And I don't have them on WinUAE with Rtg.

Anyway if it's only that pattern of the dialogs (corrupted?), you can use another manually.
The patterns shown in that dialogue are stored on AmiKit:Prefs/Presets/Patterns/SliderBlue-Dark.png and also SliderBlue-Light.png.
You can take the ones of the Pc version of AmiKit and try, anyway they are better if you use Rtg.

That was it, I ended up copying over the SliderBlue-Light.png from amikit and it fixed the corrupted dialog.

This was after reading about akPNG and installing it over what was already there (looked like it was the same version, just wanted to make sure that it was running the 68060 version.) That still didn't fix it, but after copying over that png from the PC version of Amikit, it worked.

As a side note, a lot of the png files in that directory under the Amikit for Real are not able to be opened under Linux, they say they're not png files, whereas under the normal version of Amikit, they all work. Does that mean that a lot of them are simply corrupted?

slaapliedje

P.S. I should only be running BB3, though I'll have to check some things for sure, I know a newer version of icon.library is in BB4 than what I have (46.4 currently). Thanks again for all your help!

Glad it worked . No, in fact not all the png images are png but iff ones. The thing is that the Amiga doesn't care of the names, so for example I use a remaped to 16C iff image for the AmiKit logo when booting, but it is called .png as the original was. In this case I didn't want to change the program that uses it and searchs for a concrete name. As I say the Amiga will open it the same.

About the latest icon.library it's already on the AmiKit 04 version, on the Live Update 06 and also on the AmiKit 05 update.

Nice! Nautilus under Linux should be doing the same thing, but I could see it not detecting it if I don't have iff support (thought it was there, I'll check).

Hmm, I wonder if the 'version icon.library' is just telling me the major.minor version and not the major.minor.bugfix (guess that's what you'd call the third number). Either that or I have the icon.library from BB3. Actually, now that I think about it, I bet I do. Will have to update that, since I am running into a bug that I noticed with the older version (namely in AGA video modes, when highlghting or dragging icons, they are a corrupted mess).

I have ran the update, I'll verify the version of icon.library when I get home. This was a copy of an old backup that I'd almost gotten working at one point, so I may have done some tweaks that I can't remember.

Only other issue I have now is the Picasso96 error when booting up saying "Cannot create context for 'Radeon'" which I had fixed at one point, but the RTG screen modes still work fine, so not sure if it's out of order or what...

On another note, there are three different launch bars, AmiDock, Workbench 2000 and AmiStart. One of them (I think it's workbench 2000 that has the full task bar?) is really slow to load the menus. Anyone know of a way to cache them in memory or something? The other one is so much faster to bring up, but doesn't have all the features of the other one.

Workbench 2000 has 4 different installations that you can select on MorpheuZ preferences. The lite is the one that will boot faster. AmiStart also is very complete, but will take also time to boot and sometimes to open the menus (AmiStart will be modified on the 05 update). The best one for me is my Magellan Start Menu.

Edit: I've changed the patterns I've commented you in my unofficial RTG Add-on. Thanks for trying it.

NOTES:
-------------
- Desktop and AmiDock contain the same icons. You can either use the desktop icons (and disable AmiDock by moving it to AmiKit:WBStartup/Disabled folder) OR keep the AmiDock instead (in this case put the redundant desktop icons away by right clicking on each of them and selecting "Put away").

- If GlobalTrash doesn't apear on desktop, click on screen and select "Icons", "Reset", and the GlobalTrash will appear. You can move it wherever you want and snapshot the icon.



WHAT'S NEW IN v0.5 AT FIRST SIGHT ?
------------------------------------------------------------------

BDWatch by Thomas is a new wonderful clock. It's on AmiKit:WBStartup/Disabled, and a fast accelerator is recommended. You can edit its preferences just clicking on it; change its skin, snapshot or refresh its display.

If you just want a new face clock (it won't slow down your System) you can use the new Clock Faces on AmiKit:Prefs/Presets/Clock Faces. You can open its drawer, choose one and with a right click select "Leave Out". Snapshot it (right click over it, "Snapshot") where you want to have the clock on the screen and move LimpidClock centering over it. Select on LimpidClock (Change appearance of analog clock) the best lengh of the pointers to fit the new face, and change the number of dots to 0, Click to Fix its position and save the changes.

ShutDown button in Tools. Added to the Magellan and TinyMeter bars too. Will play some music when you quit WinUAE or you make a reboot.

BDSlide by Thomas on WBStartup/Disabled is a new program that let's you watch sliding images in palleted workbenchs. A fast accelerator or WinUAE is recommended.

Actually BDSlide is using your 800x600 drawer on AmiKit:Prefs/Presets/Backdrops with 16 colors images, but you've got also an "Slide" drawer in Prefs/Presets with 256 color images that you can use.

To change the preferences of BDSlide just make a right click on it (it's on AmiKit:WBStartup/Disabled) and select "Information". There you can select the width, height or position for it, also the "Path" where it will search for images to use or also the delay to show the images.

The preferences for TinyMeter or if you want to use a TinyMeter bar can be changed using MorpheuZ with the "Preferences" option.

WBStartup++ in WBStartup is the program that makes you watch your icons in WBStartup/Enabled while booting. If your screen is too small for all of them or you don't want some, you can move them to WBStartup; they will work the same from the startup, but you won't see their icons appearing on screen while booting.

The preferences for WBStartup++ can be changed with a right click on its icon, selecting "Information". You can change its position, width of your screen or delay to start. If it starts before your wallpaper adjust the delay to start later.

NOTE: AmiDock crashes when used from WBStartup++ on WinUAE when JIT is enabled: that's why it's outside.

CopyMem by MattHey. Actually it's working with the 0x0 version, that can run from 020. If you've got a 040 or 060 you should edit the Startup-sequence and change it to use the CopyMem040 or CopyMem040Safe or Copymem060 or Copymem060Safe. You can read CopyMem readme on AmiKit:Locale/Help/english/CopyMem Readme.

ACATune v1.7: If you are using an ACA by Individual Computers you can use the option on MorpheuZ, "Preferences", "ACATune" and copy it to C. The original drawer with the readme is in AmiKit:Utilities/EXPANSION/ACATune_V1.7

To use ACATune with your ACA you must change the Startup-Sequence (at the very beginning) and I recommend also the User-Startup (at the end).

Why do I use now the User-Startup instead of all together on the S-S? Because for ACATune to recognice the ACA we need to make a "hole" through Mu. That can only be done after Setpatch, so it's better to leave the last commands to the User-Startup.

You will find on both the commands for an ACA1230/56 and an ACA1231/42, so you just have to delete the semicolons of them there. If you use another ACA you should add your favourite commands.

If you don't have an ACA do not copy it to C, because if there is no ACA12xx installed, the tool will find an ACA1230/28 and probably add memory, which can crash the computer.

New Booting Song by Gibs. You can listen it (again) clicking on AmiKit:Prefs/Presets/Sounds/AmiKitReal.aiff . If you preffer the older music you just have to edit your Startup-Sequence and change the semicolons to use instead Opening_Theme_A.aiff.

Scripts to Disable/Enable CyberBugfixAga. Now they are on Tools, and they disable/enable not only the patch but also Birdie, so you will have much memory to run for example some of the new ports of Novacoder without problems.

New Start Menus. Now I'm also introducing two more Start Menus. To try any you better close the existing (right click on its left and close), and then right click on screen, "Buttons", "Load Start Menu", and you'll find two new ones: Magellan_bar_Logo and Magellan_bar_Logo_256C. Double click on the first for 16 colors screens and if you want it to stay later make a right click on screen, Settings, Save Layout. The second Start Menu uses 256 colors, so you can try it if you use that amount of colors.

Perhaps you don't see the menu now...lol. It's up, on the title bar, just click on it and the menu will appear.

Have Fun!



QUESTIONS
----------------------

Q: Hey! I want TinyMeter to be transparent with the Magellan bar!!!
A: Open AmiKit:Prefs/TinyMeter and change Flags, Backgroundtype to SNAP instead of FILE.

Q: I've "lost" the GlobalTrash on screen. How can I fix it?
A: It happens sometimes after an install. You have to reset the icons on screen. With Magellan it's right click, icons, reset. Then put the GlobalTrash where you like, make first a left click to select it, and then with a right click you can snapshoot it. Also sometimes there are two bins. In that case only one of them has the "Put away" option with a right click on its icon. Use it.

Question Bug Report!

@Retrofan
I downloaded this file, Real AmiKit 0.4 to 0.5 - update.
Mounted it as a drive in WinUAE and used the Install icon inside to update my old Real AmiKit 0.4 to 0.5.
IconX started the installer script, but there was an error in the beginning of the script. The UnLZX command didn't understand the option -o, i continued the script and then it went wrong.
After the reboot my new Real Amikit 0.5 was corrupted, no music was played, the screen was now white with ugly blue icon's on the Real Amikit desktop. Please help.
