Cybergraphx and OS3.9

I have been having problems with installing Cybergraphx 3 on my A2000 with Cybervision 643d and os3.9. I have )OS39 installed then I install cybergraphx 3. When I reboot, I do not see any of the cybergraphx screens. When I attempt CXmode in prefs, and try to test the screen, I get unable to open screen error. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks

Do you have BB2 installed? If yes, only CGX 4 is compatible with OS3.9+BB2.

Otherwise you have to use Picasso96, or buy CGX 4.

In my personal experience with a A4000D + Cybervision64 comparing CGX3 with P96 in 8 bit modes CGX is faster than P96, but P96 as the edge in 16 bit modes. (purely visual performance evidence, no benchmarking made at all)

As i've never used CGX 4 cannot comment on that, but is vastly improved with lots of enhancements and optimizations over CGX3 and best of all, compatibility with BB2.

do you know if CGX4 can be purchased for download, or does it only come on a disk. (shipping usually takes a couple weeks)

Do you also know where to get the most recent Picasso driver. I thought that there was a v2.2, but on aminet it appears to be 2.0

CGX4 is sold in a CD.

You may inquire Amigakit who has a Canadian branch

http://amigakit.leamancomputing.com/...D&currency=CAD


You have then upgrades of CGX4 available for download who correct some bugs and provide further enhancements.

Picasso 2.2 is available as a community effort. Check here:
