the kickstart archive was removed, due to board rules. but sometimes you find other upload there. so it is ok to join that group anyway

Edit: if you click on "The Zone" link - next to "LogOut" button you get a list of files in the zone. thats the whole thing ( files last max 60 days in the zone )


i also wait for a PM

Does anyone still have these?

I'm not really trying to find the rom images but rather a demo I once had that was made for one such release (it had a scrolltext that was full screen height).
I am guessing the demo would trackload the image when you pressed lmb or something because there was no exit from it AFAIR.

I haven't found the demo, but I have found a youtube video with the music in it!
And with a little google-fu it turns out that I was looking for mod.nightfall. And the demo using it probably http://janeway.exotica.org.uk/release.php?id=1733 (I haven't actually tried it).

I remember there was a resident installer that did some kickstart mods or maybe replaced the kickstart. Don't remember what it was, but the end result was nice.

Same floppy disk hand, but in red theme, a scrolling message, some nice tune playing, and yes, a virus protector and some other utils could be called with F keys.

HQC Kickstart 1.2 (cracked kickstart)

LINK DELETED. Sorry I forget it's still copyright. I thought because it was Heavily hacked and modified it wouldn't apply.

EAB rules as follows:-

Quote:
it is illegal to distribute kickstart roms or workbench disks (even if modified) as they are still copyrighted.

So please:

Do not: Post a link to where to download the roms/disks from
do not: Attach the rom in a post
do not: Upload them to the zone
do not: Post the source code

you can either use the rom(s) / workbench disks from your real amiga(s) or you can buy them from: www.amigaforever.com

please do not request for software which is still currently supported/still for sale. Distribution of serial numbers, keyfiles (e.g. Whdload keyfile etc.) is strictly prohibited.

Also, please do not upload/post music files (mp3, wma, org, wav etc) which can still be purchased.

Doing so will result in the topic being locked/closed and the file(s) being deleted.

Thanks to all who have contributed (you know who you are).
Getting to know life on an A1000 has been interesting.

Finally got around to hacking the HQC and Level 42 Kickstart disks for NTSC. Though it boots and works now (Would open a 640x256 screen and fail on NTSC), it seems to do a hard reset when CTRL A A is pressed!

Anyone know how I can patch it correctly? All I did was change 256 to 200 for the CLI on boot. I used WinHex

EDIT: Fixed with the tool SumKick!

if anyone wants all these send me a PM!

Has anyone with these images thought about the possibility of generating patches against the original ROMs/disks they were modified from, and distributing those? If the patching tool is chosen well, there should be zero distribution of any actual Commodore ROM data, only patches.

Distributing patches should be OK. On Unix the command


> bsdiff KickV1.3_34.005.rom KickV1.3_boot1.rom /tmp/boot1.patch


saves a binary patch to get from the first to the second file.


> bspatch KickV1.3_34.005.rom /tmp/patched.rom /tmp/boot1.patch


recovers the file KickV1.3_boot1.rom from KickV1.3_34.005.rom and the patch.


Since the patch should at best include small fragments of kickstart code, this should be legal. There are full disassemblies of Exec 33.192 (Kick1.2) online, seemingly without problems.
