Re: media toolbox and settings

what are the optimal settings? I believe that: Maxtransfer should be 7FFFFFFF (FFFFFFF might also work but I have never dared try) Mask should be FFFFFFFE (FFFFFFFC would also work, but seems unnecessary) there are selectors right to the input field which offer some preset values - like scsi-standa...

Re: 8 bit screenmodes not always working

Looks like a (Radeon) graphics driver bug to me. Probably not many people have tested 8-bit screenmodes... but I am sure it is very important for those who *do* need 8-bit screenmodes. There are a few programs which won't work on 16-bit (or higher) screenmodes.

Thanks for the hint! I didn't see it at all, possibly because it is in very small text (which implies it is "unimportant").

Please add a "recent replied topics" (SOLVED)

With the addition of so many forums on this board, it is getting hard to find & follow the topics of conversation. It would be very useful if it had something like Amigans.net & AW.net with the top 10 or 20 most recently replied threads shown somewhere. Personally I'd like a dedicated page, ...

Re: AmigaOS Suggestions in particular, AmiDock, Push4Dock +

1. When opening a subdock all other open subdocks should close. 2. When adding an item to the AmiDock positioning information of any subdocks should be updated, some kind of auto-snapshot technique is required. The best way to explain this if you can't follow that, imagine you have AmiDock along th...

Re: AmigaOS4.1 ???

Is there some kind of wrapper? if so, could it possible to do the same under Amiga OS? :) I guess the answer is yes it would be *possible*. The problem (as always) is that Hyperion is trying to move the OS forwards (e.g. virtual memory (swap space), e.g. multi-core support), which means (1) they ha...

Many thanks for letting us know we should not get our hopes up.

I'm a lot more interested in Timberwolf anyway :)

Re: AmigaOS4.1 ???

Heretic 2 is currently not supported on AmigaOS 4.1. It might run with the WarpUp emulation that is avaiable, but this is not officially supported. In my tests (and others are the same I think) the best you can get is corrupt graphics (looks like the pixel format is not supported) followed by it cr...
