Both were downloaded by me from my Hyperion account.
Obviously, as the A1200 ROM is different from the A500/A600/A2000 ROM, and has been different ever since. Forgot this model in my list, sorry. The regular disk sets are identical, though there is a A1200 modules disk, and a A500 modules disk, the latter being identical to the A600 modules and the A2000 modules disk.



This is really not hard to understand: "A modules disk replacing a machine dependent ROM".

On the modules disks, yes, and those are the only differences. Excuse me, I'm building these disks, and I know the build procedure. All disks *but* the modules disks are identical for all machines, and have not changed ever since. There is not even a "per model" build file for the disk set.

There was one (initial) ROM image version with the wrong copyright statement which was fixed slightly after. Nothing changed but the copyright text (instead of "copyright hyperion" it says "developed under license"). Hence, the answer is "two per machine type", and it remains as such. There are no new 3.1.4 ROMs going to appear. There are new 3.2 ROMs going to appear, one per machine type, same logic CBM used.

Which mess? There is no difference - there is a per-model difference in the ROMs/modules as it has always been. If you complain about that, complain at bad development practise of CBM. Nobody can fix that.
