There is a fail in this release. It will be ok if you install it on the top of an old release but crash if you make a blank new install. To fix it simply download : www.jimneray.com/download/xbench0.94fix.lha and extract it in the xbench dir AFTER you've installed xbench 0.94. A fixed archive will be available asap.

I've finally taken the plunge and installed this on my A1200. It works fine if I run it from Workbench 3.9, but if I run Xbench.exe from CLI (booting with no startup sequence), I get the countdown timer, press the mouse button, and then the text fades out and the dark blue screen remains.

I'm sure I'm doing something wrong, but have no idea what.

i've made a mistake. You have to enter :

"assign xb: yourxbpath:"
"run >nil: xb:xinit.exe"
