Bootdisk-Creator: Amiga911 Maker 1.46
Mit "Amiga911 Maker" lassen sich unter AmigaOS 3.0/3.1 maßgeschneiderte Bootdisketten erstellen, die aufgrund der Verwendung von LZX oder XPK eine ganze Reihe von Tools auf einer normalen AmigaDOS-Diskette unterbringen. Der zu bootende Amiga muss dafür mit mindestens 1 MB Speicher ausgerüstet sein, empfohlen sind 2 MB.

Änderungen in Version 1.46:
  • The Amiga911 boot disks will now contain a new icon set. These icons were made in a way that should make them look OK regardless of the screenmode used, this basically means that the graphics in the icons will look a bit "stretched" in both laced and non-laced type of screenmodes. All of them are standardized to 44x22 pixels, and the icons will also take up less disk space now (at least a few KB saved).
  • Four new programs are now supported: - Check4GB - Check if your HD setup is 4GB-ready - DiskImage - Mount any disk image file as a DOS device - HJSplit - Split large files into smaller ones - WhichAmiga - ShowConfig kind of tool. V1.3.3 If you add DiskImage to the Amiga911 disk, you will be able to mount ADF floppy images, ISO CD-ROM images and HDF harddisk images on your Amiga, and then you can copy files from/to the images. Mounting the virtual devices and performing diskchanges is handled by a requester based script that will also be included. There is no need for messing around with mount files since they will be generated by the script when they are needed. HJSplit can also be controlled by a requester based script, and it allows you to select the exact size of the small files the original big file shall be splitted into. You can choose between various sizes that can make each small file fit on a Amiga or PC formatted floppy disk, or you can enter the split size manually. The script can also join all of the files back together again. Versions of HJSplit exists for several platforms including Windows and Linux.
  • A new archive called ExtInst.lha are now included in the Amiga911 Maker package. This archive contains the few files that earlier had to be copied from the Extras and Install disks, and as long as ExtInst.lha is present in the A911MakerData dir, those disks are no longer needed since the required files will be copied from the archive instead. In other words, you may only need the Workbench disk for creating a boot floppy from now on.
  • Some system files have been replaced by the free alternatives from Michal Letowski's MSys 1.2 pack, these files are: Avail, LoadWB, MakeLink, Reboot and RequestChoice.
  • The standard RequestFile command have also been replaced by Torsten Poulin's free alternative version.
  • If the Anaiis USB stack is to be included on the Amiga911 disk, the Anaiis prefs program is now optional.
  • The "Cut" command is no longer included, the reason for this is that the same type of functionality can be achived with the "Echo" command instead.
  • A new "Clean up" window is introduced in this version of Amiga911 Maker, and when you open and run it, your project will be scanned for files that are no longer needed. Some of these files will automatically be deleted, while with others you will be asked whether they should be removed or not. You can open the "Clean up" Gui by selecting it in the menu of the main Amiga911 Maker window.
  • In an attempt to save more space on the Amiga911 disk, a more critical look was taken on the system files that's included on the boot floppy, and the conclusion was that a few of them could actually go. The biggest waste of space was the bullet & nonvolatile libraries since they are quite useless on a emergency disk. Other files that no longer will be included are the following: More, Date, SetClock, SetKeyboard, LoadResource, parallel.device, serial.device, lowlevel.library and realtime.library. With the exception of the last four files, they will now be deleted from your project when you run "Copy system files". If you want to remove any of the the other four files as well, you must use the "Clean up" Gui (see above). Now that "More" is no longer included, a hardlink to MultiView is created upon booting the Amiga911 disk, this means that every time the system tries to use More, it will use MultiView instead.
  • All Windows that includes a log listview does now have a "Export Log file" menu option, and by selecting this you will be able to save the log as a file, or you can copy it to the clipboard.
  • Various small improvements & bug fixes.
