    Btw...
    Cosmos new Exec.library including lotsa other stuff, includes a new trackdisk.device for no clicking (bye bye AntiClickers) along with exec.library for non having to use PrepareEmul for ShapeShifter usage

    That will make El'Steavo happy

    Hey guys,

    I thought of sharing some knowledge from last night cause some might find it useful.

    Since I was tinkering with creating a Custom Kickstart 3.9 for an Amiga A4000D I found and solved the following problems:

    Problem:
    A4000 doesn't support >512KB ROMS which can be a problem for custom 1MB ROMS
    Solution:
    Create your custom rom as a 512KB as my guide says but you exclude the 1MB_ROM module (if you use the 3.1 exec, or 3.9 exec since Cosmos Exec doesnt' need it anyway).
    We'll leave outside though Icon.library and Workbench.library which are big and can't be left out (can be put in hard drive's LIBS: folder with no problem). That leave us all the space we need for extra modules and patches!!!

    Problem:
    Since we're not making an 1MB ROM (we'll only make Normal ROM without Extended), we can't actually use Doobrey's awesome Make_1MB_ROM Arexx script (since it combines normal/extended, and splits and byteswaps according to your need).
    Using utilities like most guys suggest in forums (WinHex) is cool, but it was certainly uncool for me to register WinHex (45 euro) just to dissect the 512KB ROM file to even/odd files.
    Solution:
    After checking Doobrey's script, I managed to realise that you only need to use his tool SplitRROMImage that exists in "Tools" folder under Remus installation folder.
    The declaration of the command is fairly simple:

    SplitROMImage <your_512kb_rom_name> SWAP
    (SWAP is optional and it only ByteSwaps your files for using it under your Eprom Burner)


    In my example: SplitROMIMage kick39_a4000.rom SWAP
    ...created 2 files:
    - kick39_a4000.rom.hi (256kb)
    - kick39_a4000.rom.lo (256kb)

    Now you can get these files and burn them to your programer.

    Disclaimer: I haven't burned this ROMS myself to use them on a real A4000 since I don't have any but theoretically it must be ok.

    Since I use for long time a custom kickstart 3.9 on my beloved A600 with ACA630 (kicked via MapROM) I thought of sharing my info and modules with you in case you wanna try that yourself.

    The kickstart contains all the normal modules from Kickstart 3.1 (A500/600/2000) but with the following extra:
    Code:
    - Exec 45.24 (instead of 40.10)                  --> OS3.9 BB4
    - BootMenu 44.7 68020 (instead of 40.5)          --> OS3.9 BB2
    - Card.resource 40.5 (instead of 40.4)           --> OS3.9 BB4
    - Console.device 44.10 (instead of 40.2)         --> OS3.9 BB3
    - Datatypes.library 44.48 (instead of 44.47)     --> OS3.9 BB4
    - Filesystem.resource 45.10 (instead of 40.1)    --> OS3.9 BB2
    - FastFilesystem 45.16 (instead of 40.1)         --> OS3.9 BB4
    - Graphics.library 42.8b11-02 (instead of 40.24) --> OS3.9 BB4
    - Icon.library 46.4.191 (instead of 40.1)        --> OS3.9 BB4
    - Misc.resource 37.2 (instead of 37.1)           --> OS3.9 BB4
    - RAM Handler 44.24 (instead of 39.4)            --> OS3.9 BB3
    - Ramlib 40.3 (instead of 40.2)                  --> OS3.9 BB4
    - Romheader 45.21 (instead of BlizKick module)   --> OS3.9 BB4
    - SCSI.device 43.46b4 (instead of 40.5)          --> OS3.9 BB4
    - Shell 45.27 (instead of 40.2)                  --> OS3.9 BB3
    - Trackdisk.device 40.2 (instead of 40.1)        --> OS3.9 BB4
    - Workbench.library 45.131 (instead of 40.5)     --> OS3.9 BB3
    - BBlank                                         --> For Blank Borders
    - HRTModule                                      --> Action Replay clone
                                                         using ACA's NMI header
    The only change comparing to the initial Guide procedure is the fact that you don't need the 1MB_ROM module (on the normal ROM) since Cosmos's new exec.library doesn't require it. Also you need to replace the old Romheader (on the extended ROM) with the new Romheader from Cosmos's exec.library archive and also remove the DummyCDstrap module since it's only needed for BlizzardPPC and CyberStormPPC.
    HRTModule is a really cool module that is in fact HRTMon romable! Using ACA630's NMI header (if you have the module loaded on the kickstart) with a switch, you can have the HRTMon (like Action Replay) anytime!!! If it's in ROM you can even call it in Early Startup Menu
    Ofc it's a matter of choice if you need it or not.

    To help you even more, I'm attaching the Normal+Extended Remus files to check them out (don't forget to remove the .txt extension from them if you decide to load them to Remus). Ofc they won't work out of the box since the paths of my own files may be different from your own. Just open them with an Editor though to understand the order and how I load the files into Remus

    Once you finish with the Final ROM file according to the guide:
    Rename the following files from your libraries folder for new ones to be loaded on boot:
    - Datatypes.library
    - Icon.library
    - Workbench.library

    Note: For BBlank to work you can't have other Border Blanking applications run at the same time!!!


    Enjoy
