Code, Graphics: Xeron / IRIS Concept, Graphics: Spot / Up Rough
This musicdisk is a multiplatform release, and our goal is to have it ported

My favorite OS isn't listed. So I choose the Windows version and it breaks with a Floating Point Exception once it gets to the flowers.

OS4 ??.. about 98% of on here run OS3.0/3.1 ( Amiga wise ) and about 2% run OS4 !! What were IRIS and UR thinking?? ... unless its multi compatible or maybe it wont run on an AGA Amiga at all !??.. So whats the story ???

Oh, i just answered my own question... had a look and it requires PPC/RTG .. hmmmm.. i am screwed then.

Update-: I just checked out the Windows version and i have no idea why this would need a PPC Cpu to run!?!?!.. an A1200 would shit it in?.. Am i missing something here and just plain stupid or am i right?

BTW - The tunes are brilliant !!

blade002 - firstly, thanks for the kind words

The issue isn't with 68k/OS3.x's ability to handle the interface, but rather the HivelyTracker replayer. This is 16 channels of precision-stereo through AHI, so it's software mixed before being shoved through Paula, and each channel also has dual effects columns... So the replay routine currently needs at least 68060, and even my 060/60 struggles with HivelyTracker a little bit. Fair play, of course, since Hively was written specifically for OS4 and it's only thanks to Buzz^IRIS' sterling efforts (and my incessant nagging) that it was backported to 3.X anyway...so we have to live with the performance issues

There is one hope for a more usable 3.X replayer, and that's if Stingray^Scarab can find the time to write an optimised ASM replayer, which he thinks might allow Hively replay on 030. He's very busy, though, so it could be a while Anyway, if an optimised replayer comes along, then it'll be worth Xeron's while porting to 68k 3.X...although since he's made the source available, I guess anyone could do it!

Well then that DOES explain why this is the case, so forgive my ignorance in relation to this, i appreciate the input

Well all i run is a Blizzard 030 over here so that would be REAL NICE if that was able to come about!. Keep us posted on it

And along with TBL, you guys are scene legends! Thanks for all the great work over the years

Yeah, I'll be seeing Stingray next week at Breakpoint, so I'll bribe him with beers and see if I can get him to make a start I'll make sure any new info sees its way to EAB...
