Amiga Bootblock Reader 4 released

Published 26.09.2020 - 12:43 by AndreasM

jasonver2.0 write on EAB:

After a long wait, we are releasing another version of our bootblock program

ABR is a Windows program which allows reading and writing Amiga bootblocks from Amiga Disk Files.

- Now recognises 2166 different bootblocks
- Brainfile / Category list now in XML Format to allow easy editing / import
- Supports ADFs, DMS, ADZ (Gzipped ADF) and Zipped ADF files (DMS scanning requires XDMS
- Will now filter directory scan to only scan disk and bootblock files unless specified
- Now supports sub directory scanning
- Added 'Encyclopedia' of Amiga bootblock programs just for fun
- Reworked GUI to allow for more options
- Fixed lots of bad detection
- Added 'Note' section to allow some bootblock description
- Added indicator of Kickstart requirement and if disk data is needed for boot
- Added function keys (F1 - Scan new folder / F5 - Rescan drawer / Space - Stop scan)

*Though every effort has been made to make everything work correctly, its still a work in progress and so any good suggestions made will be implemented*

Any bootblock contributions are very appreciated. ABR exists to celebrate the cool variety of bootblocks on the Amiga and more the merrier. We would love for it to be able to detect all the bootblock viruses out there

If you have modified your brainfile with a earlier version, send it to us and we'll merge it into the original for everyone (email in About ABR in program)
