Analyser: Automatic Area Generation

05 July 2005

Automatic area generation is now complete and working. This is needed for CRC support, since checksums are generated on areas. See previous WIP’s to see what areas are, and how they are manually scripted.

Moved all the script generator features into a new class, which made the source much cleaner as the additions contain a large amount of new code.

Let’s describe a practical use. Example: the Atart ST/Amiga dual format game Starglider 2. The analyser creates the disk pretty fast, and in the process it even complains that it thinks the boot track is dual format. Change the boot format, and you have an image that boots both into our modified WinSTon and WinUAE!
