Ha! That worked! I love OS 3.9's icon menu in the information panel. It's extremely versatile.

It's pretty wild how AfA's .exe libs affect libs and datatypes version numbers. My picture.datatype which showed 49.6 is now showing 45.17. Too freaking cool...

HaHa, you didn't look at the LibID string of icon.library in Scout's library list yet ...

This thumbnail icon technique was used many years ago by Kodak Photo CDs, photos could be seen in different resolutions.

These Kodak Photo CDs on Amiga could be seen only with AimCDFS or other equivalent Device CDs, with WinUAE CD Automount you can't see the photos of these CDs, I attach screeshot (used AimCDFS)

I didn't even think of looking there - rather, I looked in Sys Info. I'm not a coder but just a user. I mean nothing by that, it's just my head usually doesn't think in those terms or at least, not at first. Configuration - certainly, it's how my Amiga setup got to be fast, functional, and good looking but I'd be lying if I said I understood how it all worked. Sometimes in my case, it's by brute force.

Yes I looked, but there's your icon.library, otherwise Dopus4 wouldn't have worked.

@Peter I think there's still one issue, not sure if you've noticed or not:

When using IconLib TC020 51.4.535, together with DoNoColorMapping and HoldTCBuffer1, and the patched DOpus 5.83 binary that you provided, desktop icons (only!) seem to have a more "trimmed" mask than the previous version. Icons inside windows/listers look normal.

Reverting back to IconLib v51.4.533 and changing nothing else, fixes this.

I'm attaching a screenshot to demonstrate...

Thanks for reporting this disfigurement, midwan !

Usually, I don't care much about these beauty issues. I think it's caused by one of DOpus5 woes, because it uses dozens of separate tasks for different purposes, and it can be a pain to filter them out.

The icons in a window are loaded by dopus_function and dragged by dopus_lister for example, but the icons on the desktop are loaded by the main process with a name which depends on the program name and can be something like DOpus5, DirOpus, DirectoryOpus or DO whatever you want. But, of course, there are more other task names as dopus_disk(copy) or dopus_info etc, I don't remember all of them.

Ok, I will consider the main process name for using the TCbuffer, too. And then you may come and say: "The icons are still not looking perfect inside of my trashcan or on my Ram Disk" ... or wherever DOpus5 uses another task.

Thanks for considering it.
Just a small, related note:
- If you disable DoNoColorMapping and reboot, the problem also goes away.

But I guess you know that, since you understand more about how this works internally

Update to icon.library 46.4.536 (Aros, TC020, LD020, FastWB and Dopus 5.83 only):

TCbuffer1 was not enabled for icons directly on the DOpus5 desktop, and thus their soft borders were cut off by the image masking when DOnoColorMapping was activated, which is required for the fast custom dragging routines. - No changes in DOpus 5.83.

Confirmed to work as expected now, thanks!
