Q- What happens if I'm using Mattahan icons and I update to 8.8, do I have to install it all again?
A- The installer will detect and update them. You can also install the complete pack over it.

Q- It seems you have a lot of work over your shoulders. Do you have any place to donate?
A- Thanks for supporting the effort. Yep, there is a place to support this conversion at


Many thanks this time:

To Per Olofsson (MagerValp) for AGS2 and his debug of it and his help to get it running with AKReal.

Really many, many thanks for the main scripts used for it by Henrik Noerfjand Stengaard (Cyberhead97). He is Da Man.

Thanks also to James Stalham for the nice icons (and the continuous help), Ken's style, to StatMat for the Skins you can see used with AGS2, to Jean Francois Fabre for his version of Sed and Cut and to Andreas Falkenhahn for the great Mui Royale and Plananarama plugins.

Thanks for the permission for using Rep and FSearch from D. Keletsekis.

Thanks to Thomas Richter for both LoadModule and MMULib updates for letting use his copyrighted files.

Thanks a lot to Joerg Renkert for his great ModExplorer (thanks also to Paul Kitching for his image used as skin) and to Megacz for his Gfxroute -ScummVM just couldn't be possible on WB without it-.

Also thanks to DH of this EAB forum for making so great new clockfaces, thanks to Thomas Rapp for listening to my demands about improving the marvellous Little Clock. And finally thanks to Bernd Rosch and the AmiBlitz3 project for the permission to use their libraries.
