This is my Workbench. It uses only 16 colors. The color theme is based on a Win95 theme I created ages ago.

After much delay due to Christmas/illness/laziness/some updating I have finally got this done:

**Link removed - new version below**

129MB 7z - no fancy installer included so don't waste your time downloading if you are not happy/able to build an OS3.9BB4 system for WinUAE (Startup-sequence editing can be skipped). Also note the default 1366x768 screen res, as per the image (built this on my laptop). Included a rough install guide, a list of removed files, an example WinUAE config and QuarkTex for 3D support. Hope someone will find this useful, even if only to inspire them to make something better...

I have never made a legal one before so its a bit new ground to me

Edit ....Actually your right sorry James did add a nod to one of his posts

Edit Again ...According to Iggy on Amiga.org

For 3.0 and all earlier versions, its not only cool, it would appear to be completely legal.
For 3.1, as a test to the ownership of this property, yes its cool.
For 3.5 and 3.9, no there still partially owned by there developers and are still available on the commercial market.

So basicly i should we should be ok to just add a " Put your Rom Here " button to run the whole works
Synchro have you seen the installation of Amikit? http://amikit.amiga.sk/

At some moment it asks you to insert or OS3.5 or 3.9 or Amiga Forever to install it.

CWB39 installs over an OS3.9 install. http://classicwb.abime.net/classicweb/os3x.htm

http://www.amiga.org/forums/showpost...004&postcount=

If i can only use 3.0 as the basis it would be still be a good starter kit for the forum....I could still do a lot

I think you should go to a top installation: James' one. For that you can make an installer starting from an OS3.9 workbench, so you are avoiding all the restrictions.





I don't see the point to make something for OS3.0. For that there's CWB.

Edit: And you're going off topic in the other thread.

New full release (still OS39 stripped of course):

http://www..com/?97uarkvbfeumq9t

The only differences with this and original version plus update is a switch from 512MB hdf to 2GB vhd, and I have also tidied it up.
Anyone who has managed to get the original running (anyone?) can copy all the files to this empty vhd if they wish:

AfAWB_Empty2GBvhd.7z

There may be a debug.out that will not copy over, this can be skipped.

Note about Grunch and HTMLview.mcc:

Grunch will report HTMLview.mcc as outdated, this is not true. The newest archive on aminet actually contains an older beta version of HTMLview.mcc for m68k - that will throw up an annoying screen requester when used. 13.4 was never ported to m68k (read the docs on aminet if you don't believe me ). I have spoken to the author of Grunch but he will not change this as he feels the problem is with the HTMLview archive.
Please set Grunch to ignore this class...

@synchro/johnim/Retrofan
Will PM you later to help get you up and running, no time at the moment...

I'm downloading it now. Could you post a WinUAE configuration to run it?

Edit: Not necessary.

Is there any reason people are not using the Backdrop option in the Workbench menu? It looks terrible with that window around it.

James amazing WB, I've got it working. But there are some problems with the install: 387 files failed when copying. I guess you should run first a command to unprotect them all (protect dh0:#? +wd all) as I did later.

Also the menus should stay without holding the mice button (MagicMenu, Usage, "Smart Select"). Also, dunno why sometimes opening the drawers as listers they aren't shown, so I've got to change to see as icons and then again to lister and then I can see them.

Awesome the Mac Like Dock . Incredible how you find OS4 programs that can run on OS3.9

Edit: Also great the AddMenu program, that lets you have a Reboot on the Workbench menu (like ShutDown on Workbench:System, but this as icon-script).
