XCopy2 No virus Bootblock.

Hi guys I'm having trouble dissassembling the xcopy bootblock.

I've uploaded what I've done so far to the zone.

What I'm trying to do is get it to run on AGA as a exe instead of a boot block.

I'm mainly having trouble trying to find how much memory needs to be allocated by using blk.b in the source.

I realise that you can't use blk.b on the boot block because of the 1k-Dos-Checksum-Filesystem barrier.

I would like to know how big _BitMap is and also a bit more explanation with $7ee80, and how you calculated / figured it out.

Thanks, should take experts hopefully less then a minute to figure it out.

I would assume that blk.b is the same as dcb.b

Copperlist = $7ee80
Bitmap, 2 colour, single plane = $7ef00
Standard lowres 2 colour single plane 320 wide, 256 height
End of chip ram on a standard 512k chip ram machine is $80000 so the bitmap cannot exceed that.

So $80000-$7ef00 = size of screen to allocate

blk.b is a Seka directive (IMHO seka/asmone only)
dcb.b is a Devpac(and other assemblers) directive.
