Re: The game is on (can we make MiNT/TOS this pretty?)

I find my FireBee's desktop way prettier than any Amiga workbench I've ever seen. Beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder I guess.

Font antialiasing has nothing to do with the AES. It's a VDI feature that depends on the screen driver. You can have antialiasing with XaAES too.

Re: EasyMint shell?

Thx guys all going good. Sorry if this is a stupid question, with the Sparemint rpm system can I get it to update packages from the command line? If so what do I type :) If you mean updating all available packages à la Linux, then no. There was once a program that did it, even with a GEM interface,...

Re: A good & working net browser?

I wish there was a good coder out there that could make a 16/256 colour netsurf happen. It would breath new life into our old machines. By making them insufferably slow? Don't get me wrong. I like Netsurf and it is probably fast compared to other current browsers but on my Firebee it is so slow I b...

Re: GEM resource file to *.png converter

Really interesting idea. I'll try it as soon as possible. I do have have to mention though that there was already a Rscview from Holger Weets. I think RSCtoPNG or something like that would be better suited to what your program does.

Indeed. Where do you people get this idea? There's just one version, and this is made quite clear on Rajah's website:

Re: Apollo Team announces developing of Vampire standalone version to run as AMIGA and ATARI ST

FreeMiNT memory protection for 68040 can't be used, but this is not a big problem as it is an optional feature. To me this is a showstopper. I see no reason to buy another "Atari" on which I can't use memory protection. Memory protection is an invaluable tool when you're developing on an ...

Re: Teradesk Redraw Issue

My take is this: Change it to flying dialogs instead, sure you do not get real-time redraw with that. Also you are moving a Teradesk object (dialog box) and the icons are under control of teradesk, so Teradesk should issue itself a redraw for the icons. Will do it and report it back. But if this fu...

This will show the Parent back arrow and allows to close directly windows with closer instead of going backward like on standard TOS desktop.

That's what I have already and it's not working. Is this option working for you?
