PC Updates into Total Pack was created by steviebwoy78
Hi all,

I posted in the PC section about this, but I think it was lost a little.

Does anyone know how I can get the PC updates for 2015/16 into Amiga Total Pack? I can see that Starwindz has set up individual folders for each of the updates available in Total Pack, so I wondered if we could just replace say, the 2011 team files with the 2015/5 data. It would be better of course to have the source code in order to add a new option in Total Pack, but I figured this would work in the meantime.

Does anyone know how we can do this, please? 8)

The SWOS Editor 1.3 should be able to do that. Convert files with Propack, to use them on Amiga.
But then you d need a modified SWOS2 file if you use some updated exe file for PC.

A pain in the a.... :-\

That s why I always promote updates based on original 96/97 team data and original exe.


Read more about Propack here:
aminet.net/package/util/pack/RNC_ProPack

This may be particularly useful for Amiga users as this is the packer that
Sensible Software used for the data files in SWOS. Now you can edit those
teams and actually save them back to disk in crunched format - no need to
delete other team files to fit edited teams on the disk, and no crashes due
to internal buffers being filled!

Hm okay, what would we need to edit in the exe file? I m up for doing the work, but I need really detailed instructions in order to get it done.

At best, try to contact Synchronated! He is your man!

Yeah, I ve tried to contact both Synchronated and Starwindz but neither seem to be available. What s our next option, do you think? It would be a shame for Total Pack to lose it s appeal due to having out-of-date teams etc.
