Amikit works great here. No problems so far, but I hate the annoying "demo version delay" in Dir opus each time I start it.

Well, the archive contains the patch files only, no automatic installer is included...

but it's quite easy to use spatch, for example:

spatch -oRAM:OUTPUTFILE -pRAM:PATCHFILE RAM:OLDFILE

yep, I know what you mean... read AmiKit tips&trick page how to make the RUN button be pressed automatically or wait for GuruMeditation, once they release the product you will be able to buy a serial number... http://gurumeditation.se/product_inf...60&language=en

Yep, but it's easier to replace the files instead instead of using shell to make the patches...I'm poor at typing fast

I agree but full files cannot be included because AmigaOS is copyrighted, you know.

Installation of patches on "real" Amiga:

First, make sure your AmigaOS3.9 was updated by BoingBags 1 and 2.
Then use "spatch" to patch the system files with the .pch files found in archive.

To patch the Shell use these commands:
ExtractModule FROM "DEVS:AmigaOS ROM Update" Module 19 TO T:Shell-Seg
spatch -oT:Shell-Seg.new -pRAM:ShellUpdate/Shell.pch T:Shell-Seg
Copy T:Shell-Seg.new to L:Shell-Seg



To patch the RAM-Handler use these commands:
ExtractModule FROM "DEVS:AmigaOS ROM Update" Module 17 TO T:Ram-Handler
spatch -oT:Ram-Handler.new -pRAM:PatchRAM/Ram-Handler.pch T:Ram-Handler
Copy T:Ram-Handler to L:Ram-Handler



To patch the console.device use these commands:
ExtractModule FROM "DEVS:AmigaOS ROM Update" Module 18 TO SYS:Devs/console.device
Rename SYS:Devs/console.device SYS:Devs/console.device.bak
spatch -oSYS:Devs/console.device -pConsole/console.pch SYS:Devs/console.device.bak


Then download LoadModule from Aminet and use it in your startup-sequence as a first command like this:

C:LoadModule L:Ram-Handler L:Shell-Seg LIBS:icon.library LIBS:workbench.library DEVS:console.device REVERSE NOREBOOT

and then modify your SetPatch line so it will look like this:

SetPatch SKIPROMMODULES ram-handler,shell,console.device,scsi.device QUIET

Tell me, I have Winuae installed, as well as Amigaforever on CD, I can load the CD from windows into Workbench 3.1 from the menu, how do i install this ? because I do not have OS3.9 or 3.5 on CD to install if it needs them.

installation of AmiKit using the AmigaForever CD

Providing that you're talking about AmigaForever2005 CD, the installation of AmiKit is easy. Just download AmiKit_setup executable (about 97MB) and install it. When you run AmiKit for the first time, it asks you for the source of AmigaOS. Simply press the "AF2005 CD" button and insert your AmigaForever CD and follow the instructions of AmiKit.

I've created some instructing videos demonstrating how easy is the archive handling in AmiKit environment. You can find them here.
