anyone uses DPaint IV AGA with AmiKit?

Hello there!

my first post/question on the AK forum although have been a user for a few years already.

anyone ever used DPaint, especially the AGA version with AmiKit?

i know DPaint is not everybody's favorite anymore but i still use it for some sketches and have trouble using it correctly via emulation (AmiKit / WinUAE) on WinXP.

my problem is:

1. HAM mode doesn't work correctly

but more important than that perhaps, is:

2. DPaint on PC's native mode, loads up and works but not fully!

by that, i mean when you run DPIV AGA on AmiKit, in the resolutions requester, there are many choices including a 1024 x 768 screen size, which is exactly the resolution set for my laptop's screen.

when i choose that resolution, it does work, but not all DPaint gadgest are usable unfortunately othewise it is a great resolution to work with DPaint!

anyone could help with this please?

I don't use DPaint but new version of WinUAE might help. Download the ZIP archive of the latest version form and copy the executable to AmiKit\WinUAE folder.

With regards to the resolution, make sure you choose 8bit mode (256 colors). As far as I remember DPaint is not able to operate in more colors resolution.

I love Dpaint IV!

Could you please try Dpaint in 640x512 256 color mode and report does it work perfectly?

I use it in that mode all the time on my real miggy and it works great! 1280x512 works perfectly also.
