my system freezes when i use "DISPLAY=HICOLOR". Playback only works in Window mode.
Any ideas? I did not have that issue with the previous core.

Could it be that you mixed up your system with riva from V4?
Without you giving valuable informations this is hard to answer really.

Did you use a supported OS install or did you install this yourself?
What card model? What core version? What Riva version? Riva for ApolloOS with Cybergfx or for Coffin with P96? What Coffin Version?
What P96 version?

OS: 3.1.4
  Card: V1200 latest gold core
  Riva Version: 0.54 AMMX version. Copied the drawer directly from coffin
  P96: Version 3.0.2
 
  Where can i download the most recent version of Riva for V1200?

EDIT: I have now installed Riva 0.54 from Aminet and the behaviour is the same.

Last core is very imprecise.
You might have not seen a release or assume some version is last.
Please try to be more detailed and clear here in future.

You said you copied Riva from Coffin
Did Riva work on Coffin?

I would use the free P96 from aminet.
Did you use P96 2.0, did it work?

Maybe the problem is really the new P96

I use Riva Fullscreen perfectly on my v1200 with wb 3.1.4

i did not try it on coffin.
Using an old version of P96 is not an option as i am using an Indivision MK3 in combination with the Indiswitcher tool. This way i have automatic input signal switch, which is not possible on older P96 versions.

i have found the problem. i had experimented with FBlit a few days ago and forgot to remove it from startup-sequence.
  Fullscreen works now

@Cego The P96 version 3 enables the screen dragging on RTG with Vampire?

no, screendragging does not work in V1200. I guess the driver needs to support it.

Nice that it turned out all good for you.

Nothing new.. But it's very sad that Individual Computers sells the P96 just to tie his customers to the expensive hardware that this company produces..
  and asks the other Amigans to support the unexistant development with 10 euros every year..
  Hope we'll get rid of those vultures in the near future.

well, to be fair, its not his job to make 3rd party drivers compatible for each graphics card. and btw, he is not obligated to make anything work for you just because you want it.
Screen dragging is a feature which works on some cards and could work on more if the appropriate amount of work is put into the graphics driver. But thats something the manufacturer of that card has to do himself.
You can still use P96 from Aminet and be happy with it. Nobody forces you to buy anything.

I paid one time for having nothing. I was not forced for sure.. I did it just to support development. So shame on me for my stupidity 
But IC will not have my money anymore.
This jackals who asks for a 'donation' every year just for support their business someday will understand that a customer that's a passionate Amiga supporter is not automatically an idiot.

There is nothing wrong with the latest versions of P96. I use them and have zero issues.

OK, P96 was not the issue, problem solved. I was guessing (as P96 v3 was the only software I didn't have on my identical working config), trying to help Cego to isolate his problem with Riva.
