OS4 okBoot Suite

Author : R.R.Chasmer
File size : 273.7K

Special needs : None

OS4 okraFS

Author : Richard Atterer
File size : 153.6K
Usage : This software gives you the ability to have massive directories and long filenames. Included in it is a utility for UNIX systems to also read raFS "discs". For those with the new !Boot structure (as provided on the Acorn User 200th edition cover CD), it should be place in the !Boot.Choices.Boot.PreDesk directory. For those not using this !Boot structure, it should be placed in the root (or the filer directed to and run on seeing).
Special needs : None.

Special needs : None.

OS4 no goPokeID

Author : Kade Hanson
File size : 24.6K
Usage : WARNING This module replaces part of the OS_ReadSysInfo call allowing reason code 2 to be altered. It was tested on OS3.5 and may not work on anything other than this. Use with extreme care.
Special needs : RiscOS3.5
OS4 : Don't even try it!

OS4 okWimp2

Author : Niall Douglas
File size : 108.3K (includes Wimp2Patch 0.23)
Usage : This is a pre-emptive multitasking piece of software. Normally, RiscOS assigns processor time to all applications loaded. However, should the program not need all this time, then the time is not released. Wimp2 will snatch this back (it's checked once every 10us IIRC). With the new boot stucture, place the Wimp2 module in the predesk and the Wimp2Patch in the tasks.
Special needs : None.
