Garbled desktop using FlowerPot and OS 4.1FE

Hi all,
I purchased Flower Pot and AmiKit X yesterday. Spent most of the day setting up OS 4.1 FE and having a lot of fun using OS 4.1 FE for the first time. Installed a lot of software and had no problems. Rebooted several times and everything was fine until I shut the emulator down and came back a couple of hours later and restarted it. Now my Workbench screen is garbled and unusable. I have tried changing the monitor type and different screen resolutions in the config of FlowerPot but it makes no difference, the screen is still all messed up and unusable. I have a screenshot but unsure how to post it here.

Hi tlgroons and welcome to the forum.

It's hard to say what happened with your OS4.1. Perhaps some program you installed as last messed up with Devs:Monitor driver?

Or do you remember changing anything in WinUAE emulator settings?

The thing is that FlowerPot is just a smart installer of OS4.1 system on your Windows, Mac or Linux. That means if you managed to run OS4.1 and boot to its desktop, then FlowerPot did its job already, you know.

Anyway, I am sorry for the inconvenience. Maybe try googling the issue you are exeriencing or ask OS4 users at or
