Quite a legendary mag but I never was too fond of it, not even
back then when it was new. Very bad code and handling and rather
uninteresting content. But it's part of the Amiga history so it
defnitely deserves a patch.
The code is, as said, quite bad, the articles are plain IFF files
and the check if the last page has been reached didn't work, the
original mag would just crash with a guru but in this patch this
bug is fixed of course.
I never liked AFL Amiga much, most of their productions weren't exactly
great (well, I actually have the word that starts with l and ends with ame
in mind!) contrary to AFL 64 which released good stuff.
I have patched all OS routines by creating fake Exec, Graphics and
DOS libraries so this patch works without a Kickstart ROM.
Enjoy quite a classic mag from HD and decide for yourself if you
like it or not. :) I'll patch the other CJ issues in the next days.
If you don't know how to control the mag try these keys:
left/right Amiga: previous/next article
left/right Alt: last/next 3 pages
ctrl/F10 : quit
