A few questions regarding ClassicWB UAE v27

First of all, I think this is a great bundle of WB tools´n´stuff to use and very well made.
I want to use this, until I can get a cheap copy of OS3.9 from ebay and install this parallel, to see which one suits me better, before i install something on a real Amiga.

I like to mod some things to my taste (if possible)? :
  • I want a “Dock” like in OS 3.9, easy to setup and good looking… is there any?
  • I got another icon-set (Cat_i_png Icons), how can i replace the Classic WB iconset (not one by one) with this?
  • I can´t find a “Shutdown” button on Workbench (ok, when running in UAE, there is no need to have one, but anyway…?)

If, by “Shutdown”, you mean quit UAE from the emulated Amiga, then have a look at EAB member Thomas Rapp's uaequit, available from his downloads page.

You can get replacement dock programs on Aminet so do a search - they are not as easy to use and setup as AmiDock, requiring a little more work, however it is possible. I prefer using Buttonmenu, which can be customized via settings, as it launches programs without taking up too much ram but I know dock utils look prettier.

You can get many icon sets, but not many come with an installer so indeed it means updating one by one. It's a long task, I know as I've done it for all of the different packs.

Workbench doesn't require a shut down, Amiga's are just turned off via a switch or reset.

Thanks for giving the packs a try anyway and the kind comment.

I love ToolManager for a Dock under 3.1
I liked it so much, that I decided to replace AmiDock with it on my custom CWB3.9 installation just because it's nicer with MWB colors and small icons.

You can check out a thorough guide that I wrote some time ago and see if you like it or not...
