Unofficial AIBB v6.7 patch
« on: September 15, 2018, 06:59:01 PM »
Unofficial AIBB Version 6.7 patch
© SpeedGeek 2018

INTRODUCTION:
This an update to the previous AIBB v6.6 patch. It has some
new code to adjust the CPU speed results on 68060 systems.
It has been tested at CPU speeds from 50-80 MHz.

FEATURES:
- New code adjusts CPU speed results on 68060 systems
- Runs all original AIBB code on 60000-68040 systems
- 100% PC relative Assembler code
- Patched executable is only 44 bytes larger than v6.6
- Updates version to 6.7

REQUIREMENTS:
- Amiga with 68060 CPU
- AIBB v6.6
- SAS spatch tool

WARNINGS:
This patch does NOT update AIBB to fully support the
68060 CPU in the way a benchmark program written
specifically for that purpose would do. It does NOT
functionally affect MOST of the limitations of the original
AIBB code except for allowing it to run on 68060 systems.

NOTES:
The new 68060 CPU speed adjust code is NOT expected to be
accurate on all possible systems and configurations. The
speed adjust code will only function with a 68060.library
installed, but AIBB will still function without it.

So we only need to patch it if we have a 68060, right? No need to touch it if we have a lower CPU?

Thanks for the update!

Correct, no patching is required for a lower CPU.

** NEWS UPDATE **

This update is required to support the v6.6 bug fix version.
However, this update does NOT fix this bug. It simply
applies the v6.7 update to the bug fix version. There is no
AIBB version change with this update. The only change is in
the name of the patch file which creates this version.

EDIT:
Sorry, users who downloaded the patch before May 27, 2021
got a buggy version of the patch.  :'(

MD5 Update Checksum:
