View Full Version : Turn Slowmem Off at Boot?
28 November 2006, 14:59
I revived the good old SCX-Boot and I thought I'd update it. It's one of those handy utility boots that allows you to toggle extra drives and slowmem for backwards (read Old Demo ;)) compatibility.
It has ugly code to turn a standard slowmem expansion off. Do you guys have a more correct and byte-conscious routine to turn it off that works for 1.2, 1.3 and at least upto kick 2.0?

If your using workbench there a command called NoFastMem in the system folder which will unallocate allt he slow mem. im sure theres also various degraders on aminet to download to disable other aspects too .

Thanks matt, but I said I'm doing a bootblock, so it needs to be done at boot time. Will take a look at those degraders, but I have a hunch they're not for OCS/ECS machines, and not very byte-conscious ;)
It would be nice to have all the space in the world, but I need to do it in 86 bytes or less... a hard job, but I like challenges :)
Any tips, or where to find exec.library structure descriptions for Kick 2.0?
