My desktop, using an old OS X image which I rather like. (Running in VirtualBox on OS X 10.11)

Hi Remy

Maybe the SSD is causing problems... I suggest unplugging it - or turn off in BIOS? - and retrying the install to see what happens.


Regards

Is (Stardock's game) Links for OS/2 a component of ArcaOS? If so, with which course files?

Re: Links game - As Dave says, I'm afraid not - I bought it way back when OS/2 software was still available to find relatively easily.

Did you notice that the installer leaves the video set at 64K colors? Change that to 16M colors, and it will probably look even better.

Hi

Since the ArcaOS 5.0 news got slashdotted, I think I need more screenshots :)

Do be careful with claims like "a fully-compatible DOS environment". We may have to tell potential users that DOSBox is required to, for example, be able to enjoy the sound of their ancient DOS game. Most of the screenshots are pretty basic, but that's a choice and we're already familiar with eCS.

Derived question: I'm not into 4OS/2, but which version of 4OS/2 is included? ISTR there were two releases.

I noticed the screenshots that Arca Noae posted and there is 2 that I haven't figured out how to do.

The 5th one says "Open a drive or folder object in a split view as a mini-file manager." I've messed with folder view settings and can't seem to recreate the split view.

Also the 6th one shows thumbnails. I haven't figured out how to do that as well.

I'll admit, I haven't spent a lot of time trying to duplicate those features, but I did give it a go and didn't find anything obvious.

Video sometimes may work better nowaydays. Not only for your how-to question. The USB screenshots with text could be compressed into a few seconds of video, showing the expected behaviour. Show a few cool features of objects instead of explaining that a GUI isn't a OOUI. Just a suggestion, and cheating with video is possible. Many screenshots are fine, so as such I'm not advocating video. Sometimes a Youtube-quality video will work better, that's all. With screenshots, if you are used to GUIs and have never worked with an OOUI, then you won't really know what an OOUI is.
