Is this the same issue that prevents my Picasso96+AfA OS system from booting? (it stays at blank grey screen, only with menubar, still in PAL mode).

Update to icon.library 46.4.264

This version tries to fix the CyberGFX problems, although I don't have this hardware and thus cannot test it myself.

If you have a CyberGFX-card and also know how to use Enforcer or MuForce then please run these tools and post any possible hits in this thread. Thank you!

Hiya Peter,

Speaking from experience, the major difficulty with coding for classic Amiga systems is the software and hardware differences (and don't even mention patches!). You cannot cover everything so it's better to focus on a subset I find.

It's also very difficult to fix issues for hardware when cannot personally test it on that hardware.

Anyway keep up the good work

As long as I can see at least the smallest chance to fix a bug I will always try to do it. And I'm very glad that there are still some people who are helping me with qualified bug reports in cases like this where I don't have the hardware. So, my special thanks for solving this problem goes to Thomas K. !! I've got already two responses from other users that this bug seems to be fixed now.

I'm already doing that since I don't support the 68000 CPU at the moment. Maybe, one day, when the final version of this library has been done I will compile it for the 68000 CPU, too.

using ClassicWB_P96 here, icon.library 46.4.264 and wb.library 45.131. scalos 1.2b.
did a clean-up on a folder, snapshot and reopening the folder. icons were still mis-placed, not clean-up'ed (mounted windows-folder as a HD).
using AmiSys4 without scalos and same libs (icon and wb) i can snapshot this folder.
so there is an issue with scalos 1.2b - just reporting what i found.

No sorry, emufan,

I made a mistake and must correct myself now. My harddisk was write protected for safety when trying out new libraries.

After removing the write lock I can now also snapshot successfully on my harddisk with Scalos 1.2, icon.library 46.4.264 and any workbench.library.

Please compare the Scalos settings with mine.

To avoid Enforcer hits and memory trashings with the popular LimpidClock set the task-priority of this nice utility to zero or 1 at least and save these settings. I found a much too low priority value of -15 in AmiKit which caused a lot of problems with screenmode changes.

Just wanted to drop by and say awesome work! I tested today your Icon Library on my A4000 which has a CV64/3D and WarpEngine 040 and I'm seriously impressed at how fast OS4 style icons load

I'm going to do an OS4.1 Classic style theme on one of my 060 based machines later

Thanks for the hard work

I hope you are running my modified C:PowerIcons v0.08 in that case to achieve the best quality. Insert a line above LoadWB:

Run >NIL: C:PowerIcons SCROLLSPEEDUP ; for more options look into the docs

Anyway, thanks for the feedback!

Another experiment. I've tried to speed up the colormapping for screens with 64 colors or less.

Gotta love these late updates
Works just fine but in WinUAE is too speedy to notice any difference lol

Will try and measure some DualPNG folder open with old and new library in the real Amiga tomorrow and report back

Kudos Peter my friend

The possible speed increase affects only the OS 3.5 colormapping.

The time for loading icons and PNG decoding or zlib decompression won't change at all. Thus, the relative speed gain, if there is any, will be the lowest for large Dual-PNG icons. The biggest boost could be possible for normal GlowIcons with 32-256 colors.

My attempt to make the colormapping faster is based on a new 512 byte color map accessed by the most significant 9 RGB bits.

Sorry but now the colors don't look right here with some icons using 16 colors with my AmiKit.

Hmm ?? Really, with a fixed 16 color palette that should not happen.

Please make two screenshots for comparison.

How many hours do you need for 2 screenshots ??
3 more minutes and I will have a meal and some wine
