Is it possible to make Workbench 3.1 on an A1200 look as good as 3.1 on Amiga Forever 2009?


Thanks


Yes.  But not if you don't have a hard drive.

nice workbench. here is an old one of mine using 640x512 in 16 cols (used magictv or something to reduce interlace flicker).

Here's a screenshot of my 16 colour Workbench. I've got an IndivisionAGA, so I'm running in flicker-free 1024x768. I'm demonstrating SabreMSN in this shot.

Hi,

Not bad, they're a bit spotty at those low res's but I bet they chew up fast & chip mem like crazy.

Thanks to all for your info and advice.  Before I try any of this I know I will have to pick up that ADF transfer kit so I can download some of the stuff you mention and put it on my amiga.  I'm also going to look into picking up and accelerator.

mr_a500: rather nice screenshot there! Any chance you could share that DCTV icon?

@sjprohaska:  As mentioned, without a graphics card, you will run out of colours/ Chip RAM, sooner or later. For my backdrops, I use ImageF/X to reduce the colours of the background pic.. can help with appearance, and to conserve chip ram... (a bit)  It can be tricky, but OS 3.1 can be made to look pretty. You may have to experiment....   The sad thing is, my old A500 WB looked prettier than my current A1200 WB.... but a lot has to do with laziness, and losing a great deal after a HD failure.... :madashell:

Best of Luck!

I'm putting that DCTV icon up on eBay. You can bid on it. No reserve! Better hurry. ;)

OK, I'll attach it here. Just rename DCTV.zip to DCTV.info. I hope you appreciate it. You don't know how much I could have gotten on eBay. :D

Speaking of HD failures, I just had another one die. This one was my backup to the other one that died - so I lost some recent stuff. Modern 2.5" drives are absolute crap! I'll never buy another one. From now on, it's flash all the way.


Edit: Oh crap - I just realized my DCTV icon will probably be useless to you. It's not in Newicons format because Newicons has a 93x93 limit. It's standard format, mapped to my palette. Oh well. (...that also means whoever bought it on eBay would have given me a "Not as described" feedback ;))

@Mr_A500: any chance to put the Sys: partition in a zipped file (no need for the WHDload.key or ROM kickstart images, of course!) for lazy people like me to download it? :D
Goodbye people.

I\'ll pop on from time to time, RL is acting up.

I can understand that. I'm very lazy myself. Unfortunately, I'm far too lazy to make a proper archive. ;)

Seriously, if it was legal to upload an image of my entire hard drive, I would. (...and I mean software image, not a photo of my hard drive...which is legal)

If you can provide an image of your HDD, I'ld be interested to make a Mr_a500 workbench kit from it.

What happens is, I'll strip your workbench of copyrighted files and write a script which will put them back. Just like the classic workbench setup.

Hey mr_A500: Actually the icon shows up fine on my 1200T, I may need to remap the background color of the icon, but basically it still looks pretty nice. Thanks!

'Vintage Amiga icon, sold AS-IS, as I no longer have a computer/electricity/brain, I am unable to test. Bid accordingly.'

Man, seeing some of these screenshots makes me think I have to improve my WB's look for like, the 37th time ;)

Rebel,

What did you use to create a windows taskbar? I like that a lot.
