A500 Rainbow Mania 4: ABCdir (WB 3.1)
A500 Rainbow Mania 4: ABCdir (WB 3.1)
Previous Image | Next Image
Description: This is ABCdir - the best filemanager I have ever used on ANY computer. (althought I can still suggest improvements)

I managed to put the rainbow by executing the rainbow program in shell-startup, so the rainbow doesn't "miss" the screen (ABCdir has nice little shell). I use shell-startup2 for other shells.

I also use a rainbow on MuchMore screens so it looks like text is floating smoothly over the rainbow, and I've got other screens too but I think I've posted enough rainbows for now.

If anybody else has impressive OCS/ECS rainbow screenshots (for WB/apps, not demos), please post them. I am also interested in getting other good OCS/ECS rainbow programs (that are not on Aminet).

I used Diskmaster 1.4 back in the day, it's still my favorite Amiga disk manager :-)

Now.. Where can I find this NTP, I want to try it :-)

Eek. Blue on blue unreadability!

The only "blue on blue unreadability" is in the bottom half of the shell window where the copper rainbow comes close to the shade of the blue text. I'm using this on a 1084 monitor though so it doesn't look the same as you see it on a VGA monitor or LCD. On my 1084 - either because of the element arrangement or slight gun misalignment, there appears to be a little shadow around the blue text at the bottom.

You can go "Eek" if you want, but for me, it's all perfectly readable. :-)

I'm still waiting to see something beat Dopus4.x when it to config and options while still being an easy plain "filemanager".

i think he was speaking about Dopus4.xx.

No Wb replacement there.

I tried Dopus years ago (before I found ABCdir) and I thought it was ugly, bloated, buggy and not very fun to use. I also hated the "WB replacement" idea. I like Workbench, so why should I replace it? Then I had a hell of a time trying to uninstall the damn thing, so I ended up with a loathing for Dopus.

ABCdir is efficient, has nice screen layout, fast, doesn't use up much memory and is very configurable. Every time I hear of a new filemanager, I try it, but ABCdir beats it every time.

Norton Commander clone. But, i guess i take it back.. Hadn't had much sleep that night! I used Norton Commander all the time. Right befor i switched back to Amiga full time (about 4 months ago) i used a Dos6.2-only P200 to cover all my computing needs. 8-)  I quickly found NC to be a great tool, and i love it to death.. Despite it's ruggid looks.. Hehe.. :-P I was used to just seeing letters and numbers, so anything was a step up!! :-D

What doesn't sound good? ABCdir with a rainbow or NTP Norton Commander clone?

Doesn't sound like a good thing to me... :-?

I've never heard of NTP. Where can I find it? I tried Aminet, but it doesn't seem to be there. Is it better than ABCdir?

My favorite file manager is NTP. It is an almost 100% clone of MS-Dos Norton Commander with the same keys.

I was extatic when I found it.
