How to save screenmode changes in OS3.9

Hi all,

I've installed OS 3.9 to a CF card using WinUAE, then proceeded to boot up with it in a real NTSC Amiga 4000T.

Unfortunately, the Screenmode prefs screen got too big vertically in OS3.9 and the SAVE/USE buttons are off the botton where I can't click them.

Any suggestions?

Hehe... yes, click all around till you'll "find" it . LOL I'm finding these problems now also when trying some screen modes with the Indi, and my keyboard wasn't working right (I've just received today a new one from Amigakit).
... Or just take it back to WinUAE and change it. Or if not delete the screen mode (that's what I had to make the last time) that gives you problems from Devs/monitors, booting without startup-sequence.

Hey guys, have you ever noticed that the Workbench has an option called "AUTOSCROLL" and you can set the size of the screen bigger than your hardware allows?

Send a message via MSN to Bamiga2002
Or go to
and delete "overscan.prefs" and "screenmode.prefs" -> reboot.

Well, the autoscroll setting wouldn't take effect until after I'd saved and I couldn't save (at that point).

I did find out that hitting the "S" key on the keyboard would do the same as hitting the SAVE key though, so it all worked out.

Thanks to all that helped!
