Hi, I am happy you enjoy BetterWB.
I could reproduce your issue with success.

I did all kinds of weird tests, and found out:
It does not seem to be a bug of BetterWB nor WinUAE.
A clean Workbench 3.1 installation suffers from the same issue given your parameters.
I believe it boils down to that Maxxon C++ 4.0 is hardcoded not to use more than 8 colors under RTG, or their graphic display routines are not programmed in a clean way.
So if you limit your RTG screenmode to 8 or less colors it will work.

Have fun

On a system with 68020 or better I would recommend to install the 68020 version of my library as Libs:icon.library. I guess, BetterWB installs the 68000 version by default. Using the latter should not cause a bug, but it does not support all features, like direct drawing on 15 - 32 bit screens.

I can not give you a guarantee, that MinStack increases the stack in 100 % of all possible configurations. That's the reason why I removed it from Aminet already. Use StackAttack instead.

First, thank you all for your help and hints

Anyway I had to search step by step for the problem and now I found it: It is the SYS:Classes/Datatypes/picture.datatype

Before installing BetterWB I had installed
picture.datatype, size 32028 Byte from 20-Dec-98

After installation it is:
picture.datatype, size 9664 Byte from 18-Apr-02

Replacing the '02 picture.datatype with the '98 one helps on my system. MaxonC++ on UAEGFX with 1280 x 720 runs fine now regardless how many colors I set:-)

Maybe it's an incompability or bad coding of MaxonC++ but this is a workaround.
