Roll eyes (sarcastic) Fake ROM???

I just installed the new romset 46.143 for the Amiga 1200 which I got from a reseller abroad. I already had OS3.1.4 installed with softroms, all I did was delete some rows in the startup sequence. The process went well and the machine boots up normally, but I noticed that there were some differences between softrom and realrom. After exporting realrom (46.143) and transferring it to a file format on my PC, the Amikick program cannot read realrom, while instead it reads softrom normally.
WinUAE sees both roms equally and runs normally.
I enclose some photos to help you understand exactly what I mean.
Are the roms fake?

There are two slightly different revisions of the 3.1.4 ROMs out in the wild. Both were released by Hyperion, and both are perfectly legal. Maybe, Amikick doesn't know the newer revision of the ROMs.

that's what I thought but Amikit recognizes the softkick 46.143. Since WinUAE runs on both soft and hard is a relief for me. I take your word for the slightly different revisions. Thanks

Difference between a byte-swapped (for burning) and non byte-swapped file perhaps?

That would have been my second guess... ;-)

Ciao xalakibaniou, I like your taskbar, which BarDock are you using WBDock 2? and the background?
