Amiga Bootblock Reader v3.00

Hello fellow Amigans

I have released a new version of my program

It uses .NET 4.0 and is Microsoft Windows program to scan ADF and Bootblock files on PC

- Recognises 1716 Bootblocks
- Newly redesigned interface (mostly)
- Lots of little changes all over the place
- Includes boot pictures for many of the recognised bootblocks
- Can now use WinUAE / FS-UAE from any location (WinFellow doesn't have command line arguments and so cant be used to test bootblocks)
- Program uses PNGs generated by WinUAE screenshot function (You can create your own if needed)

I'm not sure if anyone is interested in having a program like this anymore. I will stop working on this if there is little to no interest

Known problems:

- If you add a String search that the program doesn't like it will refuse to scan correctly afterwards. Your string search contains a character that causes the scan routine to break, you will need to edit the search.brainfile file in a text editor and remove the offending line. (No blank lines)

- While i have endeavoured to make the scanning as accurate as i can, in some cases there will be some inaccurate detection. archive containing program and boot pictures

ABR without boot pictures to allow attaching in forum

Bootblock archive

5/03/19: Fixed Amiga emulator setting defaulting to WinUAE
6/03/19: It seems i broke .ZIP handling (containing ADF's) - fixed
13/03/19: When ABR found a ADF file, the 'Boot Disk' button wasn't enabling for some reason
