Software News   Software News : SabreMSN gets a tuneup for AGA amigas!
   posted by jahc on 19-Oct-2008 3:57:00 (3415 reads)
This is a SabreMSN theme package for use on classic Amigas using PAL/NTSC
High Res screen modes, or any other "tall pixel" mode. Parts of the package
can be installed and used individually, or together. Included in the
package you'll find: (Read more)


* Custom pixelled Emoticons and Status Avatars (16colour ILBM format).
* Original sound files converted to Amiga 8SVX format.
* MUI Settings file.
* FullPalette Settings file.
* VisualPrefs Settings file.
* Some nice fonts by Link ( linkcharge.kicks-ass.org )


Requirements:

* SabreMSN ( http://wookiechat.amigarevolution.com/sabremsn ) - Obviously
* FullPalette ( http://aminet.net/package/util/wb/FullPalette22 ) - Only
important if your Workbench is in 16 colours.
* VisualPrefs ( http://aminet.net/package/util/wb/VisualPrefs ) - Not
important, but it helps.


Installation:

* Copy the directories GFX/, SMILEYS/, and SOUNDS/ into your SabreMSN/ directory.
* Copy the contents of Fonts/ to SYS:Fonts/.
* Copy SABREMSN.1.prefs to SYS:Prefs/Env-Archive/MUI/

* Double-click on FullPalette16 to set your Workbench to the optimised
palette. Open FullPalette and click "Save" if you're happy with the new
colours (I've tweaked this palette to be as compatible and flexible as
possible, it's useful for both MagicWB and NewIcons, as well as Workbench
games). FullPalette must of course be installed.
* Double-click on VisualPrefs16 and check it all out, if you like it you
can open the GUI Prefs and click "Save".

Load up SabreMSN and check it out. I hope someone out there can get some
use out of this.

Long Live Amiga!

Rebel.

Note from Jahc: Theres a new SabreMSN from yesterday that attempts to fix the file transfers (it still uses the older protocol though), and should now work with @msn.com addresses.

@ jahc

Do you want the url of v40.23 FullPalette inserted into the news article?

Note to any Mod:
Please do this if jahc says yes.

I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

@Jahc

I have one question to this affair:

If I am using AmigaSYS 4 AGA as my main operating system I would not be needing all these extra links you send me, do you? What steps or advice you have for people using AmigaSYS 4 AGA? Thanks in advance.

P.S "Are you going to support the animated emiticon and custom emiticon we use in MSN?"

@foody
Being that AmigaSYS is just OS3.x there's no reason why things that apply to OS3.x wont also apply to AmigaSYS. The only exceptions are when AmigaSYS already contains any extras that are needed over a "vanilla" install. I'd be surprised if it didnt contain Fullpalette though (I assume this is what youre talking about) , as thats already a part of os3.9 (also maybe 3.5).

@Fishy_fis

I have no knowledge of AmigaOS 3.9 as I am only an owner of AmigaOS 3.5. But there might be a possibility that it is indeed an AmigaOS 3.5 feature too.

@jahc

SabreMSN works onto my OS4 system.

It was the router firmware (Netgear DG834GT). Now upgraded to the latest V1.02.16 (Oct-7-2008)
