Why am I wasting a Saturday night trying to get the freeware Acorn emulator (RPC_Emu) to work with a network connection to copy my thousands of old Acorn software titles over to an R-Pi. Even though I know most of them will not work as they have either used a 24-bit only C compiler, or very old ARM code.
The worst part is the error is with the RISC OS !Boot sequence. Older versions from Acorn and Pace barely work, newer versions from RISC OS Ltd hang when loading the network drivers.
I'm now trying to get the latest commerical release of RISC OS 6 to work. It loads the NIC driver, but my !Boot sequence is from a previous version. I have the ISO of the correct one, but the damn thing hangs on copying large files.
It's either give in (never!) or use RISC OS Open on the emulator.
I've been trying to get this sorted for almost a decade now. Ever since Windows corrupted all of my Acorn filenames and types.
Someone shoot me.
Personally I loved RISC OS on the Acorns we had in primary school. Simple, elegant, performed well. Ah, nostalgia... =]
