P96 RTG Software
Note that there are two versions of the required P96 ReTargetable Graphics (RTG) software (used to be known as "Picasso96", but to meet legal demands of the Pablo Picasso family, now strictly referred to as "P96") that can be used with the ZZ9000:
Needless to say, version 2.4.6 from Individual Computers is highly recommended. If you haven't already bought a copy of P96, doing so will help support its ongoing development. Just be sure to log in to the Individual Computers website first so that P96 will be visible for purchase and subsequent download.
Download the latest ZZ9000 drivers from the ZZ9000 driver releases page (stable versions recommended over pre-release versions), and then double-click the "Install ZZ9000" icon to step you through the process:
Install screens: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 | 9 | 10 | 11 | 12 | 13 | 14 | 15 | 16
After a successful installation, ensure that the following three files have been deleted:
|Note: Always power off your Amiga before removing or inserting the ZZ9000's MicroSD card.|
Lukas notes: "It's probably better to install the driver first and then reboot [i.e. power off, update firmware, then power on] with the new firmware installed; else you might not get back into a correctly-working RTG Workbench."
Simply download and extract the latest ZZ9000 Installer archive, and then run the ZZ9000 Installer, which will overwrite the older driver files. Always update the firmware last.
P96 has a number of user-settable environment variables and Tool Types. After installation of the ZZ9000, PVS v3.2 (Picasso96 Variable Setter, a handy third-party global prefs editor for P96) reflects the following settings:
If for some reason these ever need to be modified (and providing no new variables are added or removed from P96), PVS makes them easy to manage.
