I skipped reading it? Excuse me? I *WAS* in that flamewar Sam, I remembered what
was being said even before I found it again. Yes, you proved your incompetence,
you used a wrong point as your arguement, you were proved wrong and yet, you
continued using another TOTALLY wrong point in your arguement... Points are like
dominoes Sam, if one falls, the rest falls quickly. Patching the anything in
the OS, including ROM code is perfectly legal. For the first, there are OS functions that let you do it. And the Amiga Kickstart ROM is part of the Amiga
hardware, MorphOS 0.4 used the Amiga Hardware. It's legal to use the hardware
AND the ROM as long as you don't dump it and move it elsewhere. If it was on PCs
and used ROM images it would be illegal. It doesn't. It was on the Amiga and used
the Amiga hardware minus the 68k CPU. You pointed out all useless cases, even
the AMax one won't do cause it's about using the ROM on a DIFFERENT machine,
not on the machine itself.
And then you proved that you have NO CLUE about Amigas, when you said that old
games use the ROM as they would need to have "Memory managers", "Drivers" etc...
You have NO CLUE as to how the Amiga and most old, ROM based consoles work.
They bang the hardware DIRECTLY. They poke at it's registers DIRECTLY. They manage their memory DIRECTLY (usually statically).
This is NO PC, where you have to use drivers for everything.
Every arguement you used was WRONG while most were even CLUELESS.
