Description

Problem

Some old applications (EaglePlayer to say one) requires the old MCC_GuiGFX MUI class in order to work fully
As the source of this class is freely availible on Aminet i wonder if it can be ported to OS4 and then intregrate it in MUI5

Enhancement recommendation

Port to AmigaOS4 PPC and eventually integrate it with future MUI5 release

What is wrong with the 68k version, except that it is 68k instead of PPC?

Again: what is wrong with the m68k version? What benefit would a PPC version give us?

comment:3 Changed 5 days ago by Samir Hawamdeh

Ops sorry i was completely missed your reply ..
This specific 68k class seems working more or fine under MUI5/OS4 (atleast till now i did not noted any specific issues)
However having a native class and integrate it in the future MUI 5 distributions it may be even better, even because for certain application that need it, users will not be "forced" to download this third party class from elsewhere
Still also that having something PPC native is always better than an emulated one :-)
