The amount of RAM required to run such a recent version of GCC would mean it couldn't work on a 32-bit OS like AmigaOS 3.x.

Depth? Ok, but I quit playing after I saw the enemy carrier sailing across dry land. By the way, the original uncracked edition contains streamed audio on the rest of the floppy! Impressive!

I think you're supposed to build with custom startup code.

Try typing "make simple.library_r" and look at the -resident command line option.

ZShell is written in Assembly and doesn't follow AmigaDOS syntax. Aush is more compatible but still needs work and is closed source shareware so I don't know what language it's written in.

AMMX is 3 operand encoding while the original MMX is 2 operand encoding. In that sense it's a cross between MMX and Altivec.

I would imagine you would need to call WaitBlit() because the allocation scheme would have no knowledge of custom chip usage and could end up with a race condition between the blitter and CPU.
