Does anyone tried AfaOS4.8 on vampire?
I tried it with 3.1.4 (vampire core 2.12rc x12 and vampiremapron314) and works ok for icons and truetype antialased fonts. But it crashes when I try to load a skin. For png icons and truetype fonts there are more valid and speedy solutions than AfaOs, but for skins and antialiased fonts Afa is absolutely the best for Amiga68k. Is the base of AmikitX gorgeous look.

A friend of mine have afaos working on vampire v2 (same config as mine), I'm trying to understand how afa works for him and not for me.

My friend Antonio Russo sent me a video with afa-os skins selection on his v500v2 (core 2.11, os 3.1.4.1 vampiremaprom314). It works flawlessy. Now I have to understand why it doesn't work on my v600 (I use a custom 3.1.4 rom, so maybe this can be the problem as afa seems to be sensible to intuition library changes)

What do you mean by custom 3.1.4 rom ?

And please answer my question above

Have modified 3.1.4 rom with new intuition.library and new audio.device, shell-seg, fastfilesystem from the 3.1.4.1 update using romsplit and remus.
For me afa os is a bit superior than icon.library from p.keuneche (that is more speedy, but a bit less accurate). For antialiased truetype fonts the best is Afaos (my personal opinion)
