hardware OS4   hardware OS4 : Spot's Porting for Dummies 1.6.1 released! Updated to 1.6.4!
   posted by spotUP on 25-Jun-2007 0:20:58 (5406 reads)
Fresh from Spot's bedroom! - Spot's Porting for Dummies 1.6.1.
Failed to port stuff with the last version? Cheer up lad!
This guide is new and improved! Have another go! You can do it!
Read the history for a detailed list of changes.
http://os4depot.net/?function=showfile&file=document/manual/spots_pfd.txt

Update:
Read more for what's new in version 1.6.4.


WHY SHOULD I READ THIS? I CAN'T CODE!
=====================================

Well, the sad fact is that, neither can I! :) I am just a stubborn geezer!
And look at me now... 300+ uploads to http://os4depot.net compiling
multiplatform stuff for AmigaOS 4.0 isn't THAT hard, c'mon! If I can do it,
you can do it too! You'll jump up and down screaming when you managed to
compile your first SDL app, I did! To my defence I have to say that I had
to figure out a lot of the process the hard way! :P
/Spot

Great stuff though I haven't tried to port anything yet with the older ones.
I have been trying to learn programing so that I can understand things a bit better, do you realy not know how to program?

What, now everyone and his grandma is porting stuff? At this rate there will be nothing left for me! A curse on you all! And especially Hyperion and Amiga for delaying my OS4+hardware! Ptuuui!

On second thought, a curse on them will probably just delay things even more, so ... I'll retract that one. But you guys... CURSED! Grrrr >:|

;-P
