Why don't we simply send an email to him, asking for a i386 AROS port?

1. Would it be useful to have an icon extract tool for AROS that extracts Windows and perhaps Mac OS icon images?

2. @origami has a very nice icon program as well. Maybe paolone would be kind enough to include some of our icon tools in the next release of Icaros Desktop?


1. For this purpose I had asked if icotools were available for AROS, and Oliver has been so quick and kind to port wrestool. So I am now using this to extract icons (and potentially other resources, but for now just icons) from Windows executables. This is, however, a strictly scripted approach to the task, implemented for the only reason to help people with HostBridge on Windows-hosted version of Icaros Desktop. The principle is:

- pick your windows executable
- HostBridge lets you choose a icon from the ones embedded into it
- Hostbridge adds that icon to a script which launches your executables
- then you can start your Windows executable from AROS shell, gui or dockbars

A more general AROS tool, with its own GUI, allowing to do the same extract/convert job might be of interest for a wider audience.

2. obviously yes. They might even become part of the Light edition, if they are small enough, which in Icaros terms means being "part of the OS" itself.

Keep up the good work, so!

I'll be very happy to use them within my scripts too, when necessary.

IMHO this is a perfect subject for EAB. There are dozens of potential AROS developers who just overlooked or never considered AROS for being 'too much x86' for their tastes. Maybe they wouldn't be unhappy to do some work on M68K and better refine it.

Problem is broken janusd (a component which allows integration and mouse sync). O1i sent me a fixed version which will be included in Icaros Desktop 2.2 official release. You can fix it for now disabling integration (run AROS in its own screen).

@Wawa, cdimauro

100% binary compatibility on real Amigas is one of AROS goals, so yes, there is both interest in the 68K version AND in making it complete. What's lacking, though, are developers, time and motivation. See the recent posts from amiga and bszili: having those issues fixed will be useful for everyone.


@cdimauro

Although I agree on the fact that x64 is a far more compelling platform, m68k is as important as well. First of all, because since the m68k effort went serious, many compatibility issues and mistakes were fixed also on the other patforms (sources which previously had problems compiling and running natively on x86, worked better afterwards), second, because the Amiga retro-scene is made up by thousands of people (much more than the 'NG scene') and making something that will appeal them will be useful to gain attention and, maybe, new motivated developers.

By the way, endorsment from the Apollo team surely is good to AROS as well. There's no point in patching again, again and one more time the old, closed-source, already hyper-patched AmigaOS 3.x from the Commodore/H&G era. We have the cleaner AROS M68K alternative and it can be modified as needed when anyone wants.

@Miker

Nothing stops you from completing the iff datatype adding the missing functions (providing you've written your own code and you agree to release it under the terms of the APL license, of course). =)
