Date 4-May-2009 23:57:03
|Quickly after the LITE version was released, here's another big update that contains scripts and aliases for rapid porting.|
The guide itself is also updated. So...
Fresh from Spot's bedroom - Spot's Porting for Dummies 2.1.3
Have a go at porting, if i can do it without coding skills, YOU can do it!
Read the history for a detailed list of changes.
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... 600+ 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 manage 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
*** HOT NEWS! BLAZING FAST PORTING WITH THE NEW SCRIPTS + ALIASES! ***
