In your place I would enable Birdie as you've got it disabled. Perhaps you followed my guide but you forgot to enable it later.
BTW I will update my RTG plugin soon.

Thanks I will enable birdie, it's disabled because i tested various AfA OS visual settings with Amikit. Love to see that RTG plugin !! I'am using 060+voodoo3+mediator. PS.Noticed If i use seperate publicscreen using magellan display settings than wbclone, mediator+voodoo is much more stable. Now i use 2color wb back and front magellan wbscreen 16bit 800x600 and it work great and fast !!

AmiKitReal 8 released.

We are happy to announce the release of the new full and update installers of AmiKitReal!

Free download available at: http://real.amiga.sk/

Now including new programs like Rainboot v3.2 so now you can boot with a progress bar and select among eight configurations plus a random one, a new MorpheuZ with different images, voices and options, the Renegades Deluxe game, Cooper-Demon, a new IconMaker program by James Stalham to create your own icons or ScreenText by Thomas Rapp to welcome you with some info on screen.

With this update we are introducing two programs that are under development. MUI 4 is installed by default but you can revert to the 3.8 version using MorpheuZ, and the new DOpus 5.91 can also be installed with the help of MorpheuZ.

Five more booting voices by DJNick that will play randomly when you boot, new wallpapers and patterns and many other improvements for example in the User Menu (Magellan) to directly edit the Startup-Sequence or User-Startup, updates like NetsurfAGA, changes on some preferences or a “Better Config” program on Tools that will let you use a “Top config” on WinUAE or powerful Amiga with just a click. Seven Icon-Scripts have been created to launch some radio streams with a double click or directly from a new dock on AmiDock.

The update installer will also update the Mattahan's Icons Set for those that are using it, and I am releasing also a 16 Colors Ken’s Icons pack that will use 32 colors for each one (16+16) instead of the 512 they normally use, and that will mean a huge boost on the icon’s speed.

Many thanks to Thomas Rapp for his great help with many options of the update, update of his ScreenText program or small scripts to run a lot of options, Dan Wood for sharing his Radio stream scripts, Andreas Falkenhahn for his Rainboot program and help, DJNick for his booting voices, Thilo Köhler for his help with ImageConverter, James Stalham for his new IconMaker program and Ken Lester for sharing his own scripts to create icons. Also thanks to Neil Kafferkey for the new Prism2V2, to M.C. Battilana and AmigaKit for sharing Personal Paint 7.1c. Thanks to Kycer/CSG for ksc_TotalReset and finally a great Thanks to Wayne Ashworth and Kevin Darbyshire for the update of the Renegades Deluxe game.


Have fun!

Thanks a lot, also for your photo. Can you hear well the radio stations with your specs?, do you like them?
I like a lot to run on WinUAE the "Better Config" script on Tools with just a click to have the config of your photo and to play any of those radiostations playing those nice radio streams and those great Amiga graphics on screen . With my real miggys and using ACA's I just have to use a MAS player.

No, using a graphic board is a bit difficult, and I want to thank you for asking first .
EDIT: Read the Support thread, here: http://eab.abime.net/showpost.php?p=...&postcount=348

Now I would have to make another RTG plug-in for this version but with the latest WinUAE updates I am a bit lost to create it (just to install a Picasso), so I will have to investigate more.

Edit: It works with RTG on WinUAE 3.0.0 and I haven't found any wrong fonts or images, I don't know why. It looks perfect by now using 24bits.

I don't know well how to make a working WinUAE config using PPC, but it works nicely just using an A4000, an 060 (you've previously used MorpheuZ to change the CPU libraries) and a Picasso IV zorro III.



I think it's amazing an OS that looks terrific from 16 colors to 16M -RTG- from the factory with few changes.

BTW, the Rainboot configs while booting work perfectly well using RTG too .

AmiKitReal 8.1 Released.

We are happy to announce the new release of AmiKitReal with full and update installers!

Free downloads available at: http://real.amiga.sk/

AmiKitReal 8.1 now contains AmiTradeCenter program in Internet drawer and also two more Radio Streams in AmiKit:Utilities/Expansion/RadioStations/Scripts folder. All of the Start Menus have been updated to support Radio streams and we also have included a new "Storm" wallpaper.

AmiKitReal 8.1 delivers new MUI 4.0 (version r4283) as well as some other updates to IconLib 46.4.404, Wet 6.4 or WHDLoad 18.0. New MorpheuZ 2.1 now displays BETA message if DOpus5.91 is active.

Icon images are stored in FastMem instead of ChipMem.

Few minor bugs from previous version are addressed in this release.

The update installer also updates Mattahan's Icon Set for those using it. You can find the set and 16 Colors Ken´s Icon pack on our website.

If you already have AmiKit installed, simply run it and a new update will be downloaded and installed automatically. The existing Startup-Sequence will be saved as Startup-Sequence.bak800





I've worked really hard to make AmiKit available for real Amiga. If you find this version useful for you, please support my effort with a small donation.

http://real.amiga.sk/donations.htm

Have a Merry Christmas!

Edit: Total donations for AKReal 8.0 or 8.1 to keep the project alive: 1 .
Edit: Thanks a lot Slaapliedje, really glad you like it.

AKReal 8.2 live update released!

We are happy to announce the release of the new update of AKReal – the unofficial conversion of AmiKit for real Amiga machines.

This on-line update is delivered to your AKReal installation via its Live Update feature. Simply boot your AKReal 8.1 and new update will be found automatically. Just confirm and install.

Full installation archive is available for free from http://real.amiga.sk/

WHAT’S NEW IN AKREAL 8.2?

AKReal 8.2 includes regular AmiKit 8.2 update (see below) plus some extras like MacLikeDock (works with RTG only), update of RandomFile and MMULib which are integrated into MorpheuZ now. MUI global prefs, Better Config (in Tools) and BDSlide have been improved as well.

AKReal 8.2 also includes new visual themes (AmigaOS, BlueGradient and HipClone), new start menu button (HipTheme) and more wallpapers. New MorpheuZ option lets you choose from 8 themes for IBrowse.

Mattahan's icon set will be updated for those who use it. If you like Ken’s Icons, we’ve prepared 16 colours edition of his icon set. Only 16+16 colours are used for each icon now (instead of 512) which means a massive speed up for real Amiga machines.

Many thanks to Thomas Rapp for his RandomFile and great help with this update, Paul E. Bloedel for his MacLikeDock, Thomas Richter for his MMULib, Peter Keunecke, James Stalham and others.

AKReal 8.4 live update released!

We are happy to announce the release of the new update of AKReal – the unofficial conversion of AmiKit for real Amiga machines.

This on-line update is delivered to your AKReal installation via its Live Update feature. Simply boot your AKReal and the new update will be found automatically. Just confirm and install.

Full installation archive is available for free from http://real.amiga.sk/

WHAT´S NEW ON AKREAL 8.4?

AKReal 8.4 includes regular AmiKit 8.4 update plus some extras. If you decide to install a RTG card later you will see some changes in MorpheuZ (which uses more colors) and offers you new 24Bit Themes (thanks to AfA_OS by Bernd Roesch).

If you don't have a RTG card but you want to emulate a Picasso IV Zorro III, just open "Better Config" in the Tools drawer and check the instructions as you need first to have the Picasso system ROM to emulate it. Click "Install" and you will be asked what configuration do you want to try, including the RTG one.

I include a WinUAE configuration attached that you can adapt to your PC changing the paths to your files. I recommend to use a HDF file as harddrive, to use an OS3.9 with BB2 and to copy at least the MUI key to S.

Start Menus: Before they had a vertical bar on the left, where you could click on to edit the settings, but now they don't have it, so you won't notice them unless you make a right click on the image of AmiKit on the left of the top title bar. If you need to edit it now you will have to press Ctrl and right click on the same place.

MacLikeDock: Originally this program closes after you open any of the programs of the bar, but I've made some changes so it will open again after opening the programs or in some cases after they finish. I've also added a new “Refresh” icon (the last on the right) in case you have to clean it's “transparency”.

More things? There are some new wallpapers and also a new RTG drawer to store them, a new robotic booting sound that I've called "IRobot" with my voice ... and many, many more things.

The Mattahan's Icons Set has also been updated on the site.

AKReal 8.4 update by Retrofan installed on top of AmiKit 8.4 http://amikit.amiga.sk

- ADDED: Four RTG wallpapers in AmiKit:Prefs/Presets/Backdrops folder.
- ADDED: Picasso96 2.10a files by Tobias Abt and Alexander Kneer.
- ADDED: New booting sound "IRobot" with my voice and music by DJNick.
- ADDED: HippoPlayer icon launcher to MacLikeDock menu and a new "Refresh" icon at the end.
- ADDED: New 16 colors boot image "AmiKit_800x600_16Colors.iff" in AmiKit:Prefs/Presets/Backdrops/Booting_Pictures folder.
- ADDED: Compactflash.device 1.32 Torsten Jager.
- ADDED: WNMC 90.7 Stream Radio icon script to Start Menus.
- ADDED: Transparent_2 Pointer preferences from "CyberPointer" by D.Heinrich and P. Habermehl will be used by "Better Config" program with RTG.
- ADDED: AfA_OS 4.7 by Bernd Roesch with 24Bit Themes by Ken Lester.
- CHANGED: Magellan_bar_Logo_256C Start Menu, now with less white space on the right.
- CHANGED: "Better Config" script in Tools folder, now with configuration for RTG using a Picasso IV Zorro III.
- CHANGED: Font preferences to avoid problems with RTG. "Better Config" script in Tools folder will use old fonts if you select AGA instead of RTG.
- CHANGED: MorpheuZ preview of Rainboot configs now uses 256 colors images if you use RTG. Also the MorpheuZ images change if you use RTG.
- CHANGED: SongPlayer MUI prefs.
- CHANGED: Workbench2000 MUI prefs.
- CHANGED: Startup-Sequence to avoid problems with systems using RTG.
- CHANGED: MacLikeDock behavior: It will open again after opening any program.
- CHANGED: Start Menus now without borders. Just click on the left of the title bar and the Menu pops out.
- FIXED: Mi-Soul radio stream and its Start Menus links.
- FIXED: Copper-Demon.


Many thanks to Peter Keunecke, Thomas Rapp and Tommes for his wallpapers.
