Oh, definitely. If it gets to a point anything I do here is useful, and I get comfortable tampering with the "official" branch, then I'll do so.

I played Doom3 all those years ago on a gforce5700 ultra, on Windows. There's absolutely no way it'll be playable on AROS with a 5200

Might run well in places, narrow straight corridors with no or few monsters, but when the game really heats up a 5200 will stand no chance

@wawa

SVN sources are available daily.
I just downloaded an archive towards the end of last year. The sources I used are from late Oct. to early Nov. (cant recall).

Im not really one for following recommendations or suggestions. Theyre just that,.... recommendations and suggestions
I tend to work based on what's best for me and in this case just getting deadwood's work to compile and manually merging newer sources works fine.
Just how much can be merged, and whether those mergers prove useful is yet to be seen.


@thread

Best just to continue as is Deadwood's work is all we have. What I'm doing is for my own educational purposes. If something useful comes from it then great, but that's not really my agenda.

@Nikolaos

Sorry, I might have chosen my words poorly. I just meant I'll see just how much I can merge before everything falls apart
Wasnt really offering to take up this work as such, I just want to learn more about the process and fool around.

I've managed to build it successfully with a couple of miniscule changes, so that's something at least


@wawa

I did it late Dec. with sources from from an svn build a month or so prior.

Doom3 or Scud Racer/Daytona USA/Virtua Fighters3.

Supermodel (the emulator that runs the above games) seems to need more resources for those 3 games.

There's also the 3d game maker and associated games which can be a bit heavy. Needs more than 2 gig ram for starters.

I'll see what I can do.
In no way any sort of promise. My efforts will be based soley on seeing what I can merge easily (was the reason for tinkering last time).
I have some knowledge and understanding about these things, but my actual coding skills are pretty limited. Im more a "recompile, but might be able to fix it or might just walk away if something goes wrong" sort of guy

Using System Formatted Dos Partition To Start AROS Boot Process?

I have a dedicated AROS box and Im really happy with it, but Ive recently set up another AROS system for a different purpose.
Now it does the job nicely, but I have a nice ultra small form factor system Id prefer to use.
The problem however is this small system is a bit older, and as such only "officially" supports pentium4's and the 1st few core2 cpus. To circumvent this I have an unofficial bios+software solution. This lets me run any 65nm cpu, my choice being a 3.06ghz c2d e7600.

Big upgrade from a 1.86ghz c2d e6300, but the problem is the software side of this upgrade bath is a Win32 command line tool.

As such, my question is:

Is it possible to invoke a command line tool via a very minimal Win32 layer running (hxrt or similar) on a stripped down dos, and then have that dos start the aros boot process? The idea ultimately being of course to start AROS at 3.06ghz (without the software the cpu is stuck at a 6x multiplier).

They run a little hot, but I quite like the compaq presario v6xxx series.
Athlon64/Turion64/sempron, or x2 variants, supported gforce gfx, supported sound and changable hardware (I put a compatible wifi card in mine, but you can also upgrade the gfx if you want a faster nvidia gpu). It also has a 15 inch screen and are a dime a dozen.

In fact my searches for laptops for AROS I used laptops with nvidia gfx up to around the 9xxx series (give or take a few generations, but the 9xxx series seems the ballparks for optimal performance with AROS) as a bit of a parameter.

I've had good luck with a lot of the machines in those searches.

The bounty system is irreplacable in my opinion.
Sure it does always reap immediate results, but it shows developers what we need and is a permanent fixture.

You cant compare it to something people are pro-active about and say it's better or worse. Theyre just different.

The bounty system has PROVEN itself for years and years.
We dont need to replace it or pick at it, we need to suppliment it.

As for Odyssey, Im surprised no-one else has done it yet. I guess my mergers from dec. 2017 mean I have the most advanced Amiga-oid browser around on my harddrive?

Can't offer much insight as I only added anything that would merge easily, but from my experiences it's not too difficult to update here and there.
