Does it work with "Nightly Build" ROM?

Yes with Nightly Build ROMs it works fine.

Before reporting I always test with all Roms, and I test with both Nightly Build and AROS One 68k.

Ok, got it. Looking where regression happened now.

It turns out that flickering and crash is caused by the screen mode change I integrated two days ago (select PAL instead of RTG). The comment there
reads that:

"the legacy software opening a screen without PAL or NTSC ModeID provided will fail or crash entire  AROS if it attempts to use low-level components such as blitter. "

@OlafS3, @AMIGASYSTEM: Do you know examples of such legacy software I could use for testing?

EDIT:
What I think is happening is: SW requests 640x400x8 mode and instead of using GFX card, it selected AGA mode (due to change mentioned above). AGA modes (6,7 and 8 bit plance modes) don't work correctly on AROS for some reason. This causes the flickering and crashes. The change to provide chipset modes first can be re-introduced when AGA gets fixed on AROS.

Shadow Warrior and Ehumed look good to me. I have played both a short time without problems

Sorry for the delay I just got home, tested the latest aros-rom-20211128-3.zipper

- Shadow Warrior -> Works well with Keyboard and JoyPad

- Blood -> Works well with keyboard, with JopPad does not work Directional Arrows and Fire, if I access the game the weapon turns automatically without stopping

ModExplorer NG -> As soon as it starts it crashes the system

I will look into ModExplorer NG problem.

Can anyone check DEVPAC, ASM-ONE and HippoPlayer if the mentioned fixes actually work?

I do not own dev-pac. I have tested both hippo-player and asm-one and did not find problems.

I have found another problem that affects different programs (not just games)

it is there for some time (before recent fixes)

if you start f.e. a demo it works but if you stops it you only get a empty screen and not return to OS

Example (recent) attached

and another thing from testing...

I successfully print from applications in a file (postscript). If you look in the file it seems sucessful. I then tried to convert the postscript file to pdf using online converter but it only resulted in empty pages. Anyone has a idea what to do? Or is the aros driver too old and postscript has changed?

Where can I download the version you are using?

I attach link, Download ModExplorer NG OS3, don't download the FPU version because it won't start on OS3, I reported the error found to the developer.

http://evil.bplaced.net/index.php?%20name=ModExplorer&page=ModExplorerNG

Requirements:

- Nightly Build ROM ModExplorer NG (your Roma ones crash the system)

- MCC_TextEditor-15.56 (the ones included in Nightly Build are old)
(ModExplorer looks for these libraries in LIBS/MUI, do not copy them to Classes/Zune because they will not be found)

- MCC_TheBar-26.22 (also copy these libraries to LIBS/MUI)

Using the Nightly Build, Modexplorer as soon as you open it will freeze the pointer, I have to find out why, on AROS One 68k no problem Modexplorer works perfectly with the requirements mentioned above...

Regarding HIP there is a small imperfection in the underlying GUI, a white bar that is eliminated if you enlarge the window.

Can you make a zip file of your version of Mod Explorer as well as needed MUI classes for me to download?

Yes, now in the Hardfile I sent you I'll add working Mod Explorer (if you use Nightly Build ROMs) otherwise you'll have a crash, you have to solve the Pointer freezing problem.

In the hardfile you will also find HIP updated a few weeks ago that includes improvements.

Sent in PM the HardFile with ModExplorer and HippoPlayer Update

I fixed the frozen pointer freze, it was due to the usual lowlevel.library, these are the changes compared to the Nightly Build:

- Nightly Build ROMs
- Lowlevel.library replacement
- MCC_TheBar-26.22
- MCC_TextEditor-15.56
- All libraries/PlugIns to start any "Hollywood" application
- Black-white pointer
- Set config ModExplorer in Tooltypes Icon
- Installed uae.audio, setting AHI UAE WIFI 16Bit (if you do not use WinUAE you have to change the setting, because this driver may not being present on FS-UAE


In the screenshot shown also the white band on the request of HippoPlayer
