Classact

Ok maybe not exactly Vampire related, but at least it is being uef in combination with Vampire.
I recently installed jolly old Thor, trying to restore good times with an offliner and BBS. Anyway, after installing Thor the classact doesnt work anymore. I get the 8000000B error when trying to start AmigaAMP and silly gfx bugs in Ibrowse and a few other apps, and a silly unstable system with frquent chrases.
I tried to do the amikitreset as per manual, didnt work, I tried to reverse the Thor install manually, didnt work, and now I feel helpless.
Yes, I know I am supposed to backup my system before doing new installs, but who has a good backup system... not me...
Any help to hope for ? What can I do ? Where can I get clean classact package, and which version to select ?

Hello, sorry to hear about the issues.

Which Vampire hardware and core are you using? And which AmigaOS version have you used to install AmiKit.

If you send me the link to the Thor archive, I can check which files it includes that might have overwritten those in AmiKit.

Ok thanks for jumping in for rescue 😊 if you know a good backup app then please let me know also.

I installed Thor_main2.6 including the BBS, Internet and Arexx addons from Aminet.

Thank you. Meanwhile I re-activated your LZX download in case you decide to re-install.

For the backup program I'd recommend to backup the whole SD card as it is using the Windows program called USB Disk Image tool: https://www.alexpage.de/usb-image-tool/download/

Btw. there is a newer Gold version released if you're brave enough to try it ;)

Anyway, looking into the Thor archives, it seems it replaced the following files:

classes/gadgets/button.gadget
classes/gadgets/checkbox.gadget
classes/gadgets/chooser.gadget
classes/gadgets/clicktab.gadget
classes/gadgets/getfile.gadget
classes/gadgets/getfont.gadget
classes/gadgets/integer.gadget
classes/gadgets/layout.gadget
classes/gadgets/layout.gadget.020
classes/gadgets/listbrowser.gadget
classes/gadgets/radiobutton.gadget
classes/gadgets/scroller.gadget
classes/gadgets/string.gadget
classes/images/bevel.image
classes/images/drawlist.image
classes/images/glyph.image
classes/images/label.image
classes/images/penmap.image
classes/window.class

So if you're able to find them in the original OS3.2 archives and copy them to your AmiKit, you should be fine.

Fingers crossed!
