On archives.aros "Uploads" there are two games "Runaway" and "FireAttack" that can never work on AROS x86 because the library "hurl.hwp" does not exist for AROS x86, i will try to inform the author  :(

Edit:  Edit: You could ask Andreas if either he'd be interesting in building an AROS version or if He'd give someone access to the source.

It never hurts to ask but  tbh i don't think that will happen (soon). Have you seen what the library hurl has to offer ? There are too much dependencies that are either not available for AROS or are available but require a custom implementation so that sources are 'compatible' to the "other" platforms. Otherwise Andreas would most probably already had done so already.

Thanks terminills and thanks origami, I sent an email to Andreas (I hope I didn't send the wrong address email)

Yes you will probably need more, on OS3 the mentioned games work fine and do not require the "hurl.hwp" library probably "hurl.hwp" is built into the executable, I tried disabling the physical library the Libs and the games started without problems.

Andreas has responded to my E-Mail confirming my report, these are his words:

it's not possible to port hURL to AROS because AROS currently doesn't have AmiSSL, which is required by hURL. As
soon as that is available, I can provide hURL for AROS as well.

Both files have been removed from Archives.

Thanks 4pLaY, but for the same reasons you should remove "donkeykong_net" from the archives as well.
