Yes, there is separate contrib for ABIv0. Same repository, different branch.

the problem was that some applications that opened file requester caused errors and then my system freezes, on nightly the system still works but the application stops and there is a error requester. I just see requester open.

example the attached file if you start it from cli without parameters

Hi Olaf,

I tried CLI-Tracker under OS3.1 from shell and it did not display any requester - it silently exited. Are there any dependencies needed for it?

EDIT: Ok, I found it. It was reqtools.library missing.

@OlafS3

Do you an example of another (simple) tool that has the same problem as CLI-Tracker?

Please try this version of reqtools.library. It should fix the freeze issues:

If I remember right the last version already solved the freeze problem. There was only the problem that sometimes if a kind of requester opened the GUI seemed not to show the buttons, if you pressed on it the buttons reacted and were shown.

From how the bug looked like, it might have been random - sometimes it worked and other times it would not. Now it should work (show file listing in requester window) all the time.

@AMIGASYSTEM, @OlafS3

I'm looking now into the issues of not closing window after running some demos like "Andy_And_Blondie". Do you know if the software that causes this problem is system friendly or does it take over Amiga? AMIGASYSTEM - your video shows kind of dual-screen setup when the demo is running on separate screen. Can you - when the demo is running do anything in Wanderer?

Yes, on WinUAE I had configured two screens, one RTG and one PAL, just to avoid the system freezing when the Demo was exited.

On OS3 RTG systems this does not happen, you can exit the Demo and use the operating system

What I'm interested in is whether you can use the system while the demo is running?

When you exit the Demo you have a gray screen and the system is no longer visible.

you mean multitasking and system friendly? Certainly not... software like demos squeezzes everything out of the system it can. It takes over the system for sure. Thanks in advance for trying to find the problem. I saw this only with software or demos using PAL screens so I assume the problem are games, demos and software using PAL screens taking over the system.
