Mission: Platform-Independence

March 11, 2012 6 comments

Hi,

Quick weekend update, made a start on porting Jack for another OS.  What’s this Icaros Desktop no less?

Not sure why the window transparency is not in effect, Hollywood or AROS limitation perhaps?  Also the mouse pointer is all skewed and non-recognisable.  Still, nice start.  Configured a few helper applications along the way, foreinstance ArosPDF is called instead of AmiPDF, MultiView instead of NotePad, FinderV3 instead of AmigaOS4-centric Find and a few more fixes to get this working in a new environment.  Still a little way to go to get everything working correctly, the hardest part was getting TO the interface.  Enjoy!

Wanna help speed up the porting effort?
