Thanks Leon!

Luckily I just read about using the TC20 icon for AmigaOS 3.2 and 3.2.1. As I am testing out 3.2.1 ready to upgrade to. Why oh why did they not incorporate your icon.library?
No, the question is just why they didn't accept an icon.library v46 instead of presupposing always v47+ resources for OS 3.2, a sometimes thoughtless practice of C programmers??

On the other side, I want to stay independent from the OS development and commercial interests.

Anyways, keep up the good work loving the icon sets and the speed

Peter I noticed that with your Icon.library on AfA One Preferences, the "Icon Resize" Tab is disabled and therefore you cannot change the size of the icons.

No Carlo, it's not my library which is responsible, but probably your AfA_OS configuration or system setup. Is MoreLibSpace correctly installed and the system rebooted?


Edit: Ok, I think I found the reason. In my startup-sequence I have two additional lines after / below the MoreLibSpace line, but before SetPatch:

Code:
RemLib >NIL: icon.library      ; remove 3.1.4 loader
RemLib >NIL: workbench.library ; remove 3.1.4 loader

Yes, if you add the "RemLib >NIL: workbench.library" command, AfA OS Prefercences will work.

I use "RemLib >NIL: icon.library" from a script from WBStartup, this allows me to make Dopu4 work well in showing DualPNG icons.
But the resize in AfA OS Prefercences does not work.

If I use "RemLib >NIL: icon.library" in the startup-sequence after MoreLibSpace, Dopus4 "Icon Info" will show the corrupted icons, see screenshot

Yes, confirmed, but that are all problems of AfA_OS and this MoreLibSpace patch for the OS libraries. I don't need any themes and skins, nor scaled icons or TrueType fonts. And I don't like these ugly oversized window frames of AfA anyway.

So, you should try yourself to find a better solution for RemLib. I added these two RemLib lines mainly for my non-AfA system configuration, in order to get rid of these more individual (crazy) OS library loaders, pretending themselves of being a library, and sometimes rejecting to load other or older libs. These two RemLib lines might not be the best solution for AfA yet, and that was not my goal at all. Maybe I can find something more optimal later, but AfA is never optimal from my point of view!

Yes AfA OS would need an update, of course AfA OS is good only on RTG screens, it makes no sense to use it on PAL systems, also it requires considerable system pootence.

To me AfA OS represents modernity and graphical beauty, then everyone has their own his taste.

There are two possible solutions for your DOpus4 IconInfo problem:

1.) The RemLib command after MoreLibSpace is only required to enable the Icon-Tab in the AfA_OS Preferences. If you rarely need to change these settings like transparency and icon size then you can save them once. This last saved icon configuration seems still to be used even after the early RemLib command has been commented out again and the Icon-Tab appears as being disabled.

2.) Or you can change the DOpus4 icon filetype configuration and use the AmigaDos command WBInfo {f} for calling RAWBInfo instead of or in addition to IconInfo. If you want both it looks like this:

Great solution, I will use this !

With the two RemLib commands after MoreLibSpace, Eastern also works.
