I've noticed Boing bags 3 and 4 are now just one bag. Shows how often I check it.

I wouldn't recommend the installer either as it destroys the startup-sequence. Make a backup of startup-sequence and user-startup (just to be on the safe side) before installing.

Would help to know which library it says it cannot find.

Bah, bunch of negativity and FUD.  BB3&4 are just patch rollups of many patches most users probably already have installed manually over the years, anyway.

It installs just fine on a clean system, your mileage may vary if you've got a system you've been using for years with just 1&2, and then try to install 3-4.

Watch this:

Sorry for the rambling.  ;)

Use a SnoopDOS to search for your problems. For the future: make backup at first. Unofficial BoingBags doesn't test in different configurations and thus spoil system.

Actually it asks whether you want startup-sequence replaced automatically. If you choose yes, it makes a backup automatically first. If you choose no, it just tells you what changes to make and brings up a text editor so you can make the changes yourself.

However, my site http://amigan.1emu.net is down, so getting a copy of the latest BB3&4 (V1.0i) may be difficult, try https://web.archive.org/web/20150209153516/http://amigan.1emu.net/releases/ Hopefully my site will be back up soon, probably at a different URL though...

@alienkidmj12:

More details needed: (a) what libraries is it failing to open? (use SnoopDOS if it won't tell you) and (b) did this issue start happening at the time BB3&4 was installed or later on (sounds like later on, which would suggest the issue isn't caused by BB3&4)?
