Amikit X "dead" after desktop change

Author NightShadowPT
#1 Posted: 5 Sep 2017 05:46 

I have tried playing with the Desktop type option in Morpheuz, but after changing it I only get a grey background (with working mouse) but nothing else. I have no idea how to restore the original desktop, so my AmiKit install is now dead

Amikit X version 1.3.0
Windows 10
Workbench 3.9

Can someone help me with this one? Are there any hotkeys to restore the previous desktop mode?

Thank you.

Hi Bruno,

did you change just screenmode or did you disabled some patches as well, for example AfA_OS?

If it was screenmode only, can you run AmiKit:Prefs/Screenmode and select 1366x767 32bit mide?

If not, reboot AmiKit and at the same time hold Left and Right mouse button. An Early Starup screen should appear. Select Boot without Startup-Sequence and then type the following commands:

Delete SYS:Prefs/Env-Archive/Sys/Screenmode.prefs

Then a screen mode requester will popup on reboot. Select 1366x768 32 bit or similar mode.

But if you changed "Desktop Replacement" option, when you boot to Early Startup write the following command to restore Directory Opus:

Rename SYS:S/AmiKit-StartOS SYS:S/AmiKit-StartOS.bak

That worked like a charm. My AmiKit is back!

Thank you for the support.
