It is outstanding that Amiga Classic was included!  How many times have things been updated and improved, BUT, only for NG Amigas?  I'm impressed.

Is there a minimum spec (CPU, memory, RTG, etc) for Multiviewer or will it even run on humble classic machines (too much to hope for?)?  :)

Have there been any optimizations for speed over the old Multiview?  OTOH, the speed of the original was mostly dependent upon the speed of the datatype.


The classic version will require at least datatypes library 45 and the later versions of some of the Reaction Classes so we are talking a 3.9 / 3.X version with RTG. It's not going to work on a stock a1200 I'm afraid, but should work well on a WinUAE setup or an expanded system with gfx card.

Safe to assume it's been tested with the WarpDT's?

It has, but WarpDTs are just picture datatypes so should work anyway. They don;t support saving, but as Oliver pointed out in another thread they don't use the same basename so saving to new formats is still supported via the OS4 datatype.

Great Job!  This helps to rejuvinate my faith.

If the Amiga is middle aged, its most obvious "gray hair" is the spotty inability to cope with some modern file types.  If this movement grows, it could take us to a more capable and relevant Amiga.  ;)  It might even spill over and put a shot in the arm of low spec Amigas.  I can dream. :)

@Oldsmobile_Mike

I have Oliver's WarpDT on my A1200 here and found no problems yet with the 68K version of MultiViewer.

That's a little disappointing. For speed, meynaf's image viewer V (check EAB) is probably the best available. Supports all the common image formats, is fast, renders in HAM8 in good quality and requires AOS3.0. Needs 68020+.

Here is a picture of MultiViewer AmigaOS 3 version.  We have a few issues with dynamically adding the clicktab gadgets - it seems that the OS3 version of the clicktab needs updating.
