Phew!

Post by admin » Fri Jul 18, 2003 12:59 am

Phew! That was fun!

Just got Aemulor's patching code working so that you can
now run pre-SA apps using the StrongARM engine, which
makes them a lot more responsive... ie. Aemulor can now
do what the RISC OS >= 3.70 AppPatcher module does.

Why not just run the AppPatcher module under Aemulor?
Well, that was plan A, but it turned out that it needs
the TinyStubs module in order to access the SharedClibrary,
and the version I have lying around isn't SA-compatible,
and the one in the RISC OS 4 ROM can't be extracted and
run at a different address.... etc. etc.

It all started to look so complicated that I feared a
number of users wouldn't have the right module versions,
or get them installed in the right places, so in the
end I've done things the hard way in the hope that it's
easier for you guys.

And it works...bonus! :-)
