Title: How to Soft kick a Rom file?
Post by: bradhansen1@cox.net on June 20, 2021, 09:55:11 PM
Can not obtain the Rom chip for the AmigaOS3.2 install on my CD32. Can anyone point me to a “How to” file to
soft kick the Rom file? Would be much appreciated.

A 3.2 ROM does not exist for the CD32. You can install WB 3.2 with the 3.1 ROM chip.

That is a terrible answer… Amigastore.eu is already selling the chip when you buy the CD.
I have the CD and the Roms in ADF format. I just wanted to know the procedure
on how to soft kick a rom file. I KNOW that can be done, and that’s what I’m interested in.
Any help would be appreciated.

CD32 3.2 support is unofficial/experimental, isn’t it? I don’t think 3.2 can be softkicked on a CD32. SKick requires associated .rtb and .pat files, which don’t (yet) exist for 3.2/CD32. And unless one of the newer TF accelerators comes with a command-line tool to soft kick using dedicated hardware I think you are out of luck.

But the default LoadModule methodology for kicking replacement modules into 3.1 ROM systems should work. It might cost a bit more RAM than softkicking, though.

Matt, thank you, it will at least give me something to play around with.
