I tried to install the Workbench 3.1 and BetterWB. When I install then the Picasso 96 driver and the SAGA-driver with 32 Bit Colors I get icons with strage colors.

Then I tried this tutorial:
EXTERNAL LINK 
In 6min 40sec I get after pressing the project icon 01-installer the message appears "unable to open achive" although I installed the lha and lzx decopression tools.

Can anybody help me or are there other methods to get a better WB 3.1 on Apollo V4 in true colors?

What icons are these?
Are the icons with false colors MagicWB icons?
When you set 32bit screenmode in prefs to how many "pen colors" did you set the WB to use?

For example the colors for the drawers or the disk in the ClassAct Preferences Splash Screen is not blue al in the Video tutorial.

The Video tutorial does not show correct colors for  Workbench 3
But show totally wrong colors.
Many of the icons in the video are MagicWB icons.
The correct color of MagicWB Icons is "mostly Grey with a touch of brown/blue or Pink".

In the video some of these icons show the colors Blue/Purple - these blue-purple colors are wrong.
   
  Here is an example of how MagicWB colors should look correct:

As far as I remember, WB 3.0/3.1 was always a mess, when using MagicWB with more than 8 colors.

WB 3.5/3.9 would do much better....
