The first DivX from WoA2002 Online! The first DivX is online! you can get it here on my site.
This file will be online for about 8 hours, after that i'll remove the download (i have very limited traffic), please set up a mirror somewhere :)
Sorry for the shaky image, but it's the first time i filmed something like this, and also, the image quality isn't what i'd hoped, however, i'll improve on this situation asap. (consider this V1.0 ^_^) Amon_Re

About crahsing an OS :)
You know it's really easy to make an OS crashing, I even achieve to
crash easily MacOS X or Linux so... :) If someone want to make a video
of an OS crashing it can be done with every OSes on this planet :)
I really wonder what there is on this video, but yes there were some
guys that loved to play to make the Pegasos crashing at this show :(
This game can be made also with classic Amigas and I don't speak about
the betas stuffs of OS 4 which are also easily crashable :)
But this kind of plays are rarely normal usage of the OSes. In normal
usage situation a Pegasos running MorphOS is not more unstable than an
Amiga running AmigaOS 3.9.

About the vid, no i didn't play to make MOS crash, but i do think it's fair to say that an OS shouldn't lose it's icons when dragging windows over eachothers :)

Well it looks that you are not the only one reporting such freeze.I apologize having shouting loud too soon. I thought it was deliberate to bash MorphOS. I know some beta testers having no such problems with earlier releases of MorphOS. Maybe they should not have installed the latest release. I will get more info to understand what happened there.
Thank you for the video. I did not see it yet, I hope we will have mirrors soon.

In reply to Comment 15 (Cpt. Crunch):
The first thing that strikes you about MorphOS is that it looks very nice, no question about that. It also felt quite slick in moving stuff, but thats basicly due to the gfx/cpu mussle it has. (G3 vs 68K), nothing wrong there, however, pretty looks do not make an OS good, it still has quite afew glitches, and judging from the crash with frogger i'd say no MP (or buggy MP) and that's a shame, as this renders MOS into the AOS3.9 area of stability (one stray app & you go down). It's still to early to fully judge it.

Eh... that's almost funny, 'cause I all but a GPL fanatic... I'm much more in favour of licenses like LGPL, BSD or the AROS' APL.
As I told Sebastian privately, I was in complete good faith when I asked my questions about the GPL status of Frogger, and I know he was too, when he used GPL'd code in Frogger... he just didn't pay close attention to the implications of what he was doing.
In a way I'm sorry if this cause him troubles, also because I'm not the evil GPL guardian, but on the other hand I know I didn't do anything bad, rather I just pointed out some things that needed to be fixed.
However, I think you'll see nice improvements in Frogger during the next weeks, and I hope you'll still want to give Sebastian the credit he deserves for having brought to AmigaOS a decent (although non very stable ;) video player, even by buying his product, because GPL doesn't mean "gratis" (for whoever understands that word), it means "free" as in "freedom".

And you know that ofcourse because you have that material.
Give me a break.
The OS modules undergoing testing are in fact rock-stable.
One tester who uses Amithlon for testing OS 4 components actually remarked that with the OS 4 modules installed his system was a lot more stable.
And he did have access to it unlike you.

In reply to Comment 37 (Ben Hermans/Hyperion):
I think you are misunderstanding this. Even if the OS code would be 100% bugfree, it would be very easy to crash AmigaOS with an application that misbehaves. Nobody will ever be able to prevent this(neither MorphOS nor AmigaOS4). It's just the way that the OS was designed.

That's not enough... because the releases which use the GPL'd code must have their source codes released under GPL too. Any other release is free from that requirement.

Steve in comment 12 stated:
"I don't speak about the betas stuffs of OS 4 which are also easily crashable :) "
He's implying that the "beta" version of OS4 (not AmigaOS in general) is crashable... even though Steve has never used OS4.0.

Yes and no.
No, you won't be able to change this as long as you don't introduce isolated and protected address spaces.
We do have a limited form of memory protection going and there's the fact that stack underruns won't happen anymore making OS 4 substantially less crash-prone.
It's true OTOH that OS 4 still has a single virtual address space at this point and that moving to isolated addresss spaces isn't possible for compatibility reasons.
The functionality is already there in the kernel however and will come in at one point or another.
Older applications which don't play by the rules (MEMF-public) can then be run in some kind of UAE environment.

In reply to Comment 44 (Ben Hermans/Hyperion):
In my opinion, all talk about memory protection on AmigaOS is nothing but hype.
I don't believe that any form of "limited" memory protection will ever make a real difference compared to the situation we have now. Protecting non-allocated memory will be of little help. That's not where the crashes come from anyway. Remains to be seen if you can make the automatic stack extension work in practice.

When you say "AmigaOS" you obviously mean OS 3.x.
With OS 4, we can move to isolated and fully protected address spaces at any time but the real issue is the fact that it will break a shit-load of legacy software.
