4. Adding support for the digital outputs of modern sound cards.

Digital output of my ESI Juli@ sound card works just fine ! And AFAIK it's not the CPU converting sound from digital to analog. It's the hardware on your sound card that does the job.

What you mean is that your sound card converts everything (you normally hear with the analog stereo plug) to digital audio which is called PCM Audio, what i mean is (marked bold in my own quoted text) is AC3 - Audio and that you can hear anything from it, you have to install this tiny piece of software OS4 AC3 Audio Codec.

And this tiny piece of software is 100% executed by the CPU in our Amigas, without it, at least with DvPlayer you will hear no Sound when playing mpeg files muxed up with AC3 Audio ! But when just passing through the AC3 Audio Stream the CPU and the Audio Chip have to do a really easy job, cause the DECODING is done by external AC3-Decoder Hardware such as an amplifier.

@nubechecorre

My personal AmigaOS 4 future wish list:

1. New 3D Graphics Subsystem supporting at least the FULL OpenGL 2.0 (or greater) specification. Never again a 100% CPU based and hungry implementation of Transformation and Lighting. No more (again CPU hungry) wrapping like currently OpenGL->MiniGL->Warp3D->Picasso96 it does.

2. Making the second core of NEMO working under OS 4.x

3. Support for more than ~1,75 / (2 GB) main memory

4. Adding support for the digital outputs of modern sound cards. In drivers and their related control panel. This would also boost DVD playback (especially) on the low entry OS 4 machines, cause currently the cpu has to convert the digital ac3 audio stream to stereo which costs a significant amount of performance. When using digital audio out - no need for audio processing -> just pass through !

5. New memory management system offering full Memory Protection and support for a Task Manager


and the last one a more or less funny one:

Implementation of the original AGA Chipset for the XCORE :D

Ok, i can use temporarily one of the MUI Icons for this. But i like the uniqueness of all new Mason Icons from OS 4.1.x and want to see one in future a unique Documents folder ;)

So in this case i withdraw my previous Wunsch and have a new one :)

A folder icon for a movies folder. :D

Re: Disk image device 52.60 does not work

After playing some time around i also recognized the missing executable flag, but its good that salass00 has uploaded a fixed archive to avoid the problem generally.

@MickJT
//When I double-click on an iso it says "Unable to open your tool MountdiskImage. It doesn't say "not found"

My workbench is in german and i translated it into english, in german it means it cannot be found and in english unable to open. Maybe Update 3 has synchronized locales........ ;)


thanks all

[SOLVED] Disk image device 52.60 does not work

Hello,

i just updated Disk image device via AmiUpdate and rebooted my system. After reboot double clicking an iso file brings a message that the Program 'MountDiskImage' cannot be found. Also DiskImage-Gui does not works anymore after the update, after double clicking it - nothing happens.

I thought maybe an error during updating via AmiUpdate and downloaded the archive directly from os4depot and installed it. Same problems.

System: Sam440ep, OS 4.1 Update 2


Anyone else has this problem?

Thanks

Re: Cinnamon Writer 0.69 IV released

CW is getting better and better.

Here's a bug i want to report:

- Starting CW
- Typing anything "bla blabla.."
- Clicking on "New Document" Button
-> Now Bug#1: CW does not asks me to save my stuff.

- Nevertheless typing again anything "bla bla bla bla blablabla" and clicking once again the "New Document Button"
-> Bug#2: Program crashes

Is it planned for CW to insert Images into the Document? Combined with CW's nice PDF export it would be great.

Thanks for your support.

Re: Amiga OS4 Update 1. What have you found so far?

@Mikey_C

Amiga OS4 Update 1. What have you found so far?

-> New Reaction (improved speed, new features (see OWB 3.23 tabs for example))

-> Optimized Compositing Mode (Requires REALLY less Video-RAM)

-> I cannot not say i found it but i recognized that the Kernel has become A LOT of improvements and is much more stable (especially when a task eats the wohle cpu time, system is nevertheless more stable and responsive then)

-> Cold boot time is now about 42 seconds on sam440ep (latest uboot also installed)

-> USB data transfer works now stable

-> New Version of AmiPDF (a bit faster PDF rendering)

-> On the first look it seems to me that all System utilities, prefs, programms has been recompiled (and maybe optimized or updated) with a newer Version of the SDK, what also means more stability and speed with them

-> OWB 3.23

-> Much much more, last night it was very laaaaaaate :)

I can also report that the new version 0.73a is much more faster (i own a sam@667) then the old one. It is possible to play the Shareware Version of Cannon Fodder in Window with a CPU Load of about 50%. Also Jazz Jackrabbit is now much faster and very well playable.

Thanks for your work.
