Title: Either a force relocation packer or a routine to relocate
Post by Phill on 12.04.12 at 09:27:56
I asked this on Atari Forum, but I've come to a dead end.

I'm converting Where Time Stood Still to Amiga, and i'm using the Was (not was) crack as the basis of the version i'm using, but the way he's cracked it means that a lot of memory is wasted which I need to get back so there is enough free chipram to process and display the ST converted screen.

His version is force relocated to $db06, and I need to locate it lower, so I looked at the Pasti image, and that one is relocatable.

On the Amiga we could force executables to relocate to an address of our choosing, and I need to do the same on this game, which will then free up all the ram I need.

So, does any of the packers give the option of force relocating executables on the ST, if not that, has anyone ripped the TOS routines that relocate executables, or have a utility that does it?
