Thanks. If my ROMs work for you I'll just assume this this something FS-UAE related again and will use ShadowWarrior to test changes from Apollo team.

Maybe you haven't configured FS-UAE well, I'll do some tests with Amilator and FS-UAE Windows version, with Linux you could try WinUAE with Wine and use my config, eventually I'll attach it here.

You have to test both with ShadowWorrior and Blood, this is because the two games have different and common problems for other games, as said if I change the librearia the problems will be solved for both ShadowWorrior and Blood.

Even TinyLittleSlug and Galagawars work perfectly by replacing the library !

Replacing with what?

The idea is to have aros as a full replacement of amigaos. I cannot distribute original files legally.

I think like you, my AROS One 68k does not include OS3 software, the only OS3 software included is free software taken from Aminet that is used to solve "momentarily" the shortcomings of AROS 68k

The library to replace is "lowlevel.library" that I have mentioned several times in this thread, of course it is a specific library for games distributed on Aminet !

Thanks for the idea. I have replaced it in rom using remlib and now the problem is solved. What library did you use for asl library?

Yes do you have to use RemLib, same procedure as for Icon.library

asl.library or reqtools.library?

You can almost always find something to replace it, which applications were giving you problems with reqtools?

There were a lot of them, of course the fault of the old OS3 programs, a good App to test the various Request Files is EaglePlayer that allows you to choose reqtools, asl.library or req.library

@AMIGASYSTEM, @OlafS3

Do the replacement you found for lowlevel and reqtools come with source code?

for reqtools I used this:
http://aminet.net/package/util/libs/ReqToolsUsr

Funnily I find somewhere the name of the author Magnus Holmgren as aros dev and also him involved in a backport of reqtools from aros

perhaps it is the aros library but without some commits done since then that harm

here is the archive with the backport from aros

not sure if both reqtool libs are identical
