|AmigaOS 4.1 FE Upd 2 Hotfix on SAM460ex|
The first thing I did was to grab the Update 2 Hotfix from Hyperion Entertainment through AmiUpdate, since I have the latest AmiUpdate version 2.47. It picked it up right away. At the same time, I checked Updater for an update, and there was some files to update, including a new version of the Emotion Player 1.9 and an update to Updater itself. I also updated the Hurl Hollywood plugin and a Jansion library as well. I'm going to explain how it all worked out.
The installation of the Update 2 with Hotfix went through without any trouble and just updated everything that was from the Hotfix update. You all remember I ran Update 2 with the Update 1 kernel, because of certain problems with the new kernel. The Hotfix solved the kernel issue and even updated the kernel further with version 54.30. A couple of improvements to different libraries and DOS functions have also been installed from the Hotfix as well. If you wonder if the Hotfix is HOT, then the answer is clearly YES! It sure is, and you should install it on your system!
The old MUI-Hollywood apps like Jack and Jill do no longer work, but I also got the impression that these old apps are now obsolete and pointless to use. Jill was the modern calender tool I used to run on the top-right screen. This has now been replaced with both the Calender and Clock from the Enhancer bundle developed by A-EON. The black skin fits right into my setup!
Did some testing again with running the NSM patched version of OctaMED SoundStudio v1.03c with a WIP-version of a new TheMaestrix tool. The new TheMaestrix tool is further under update by Damien Stewart. As for the old, famous OctaMED SoundStudio v1.03c tracker, it runs excellent under AmigaOS 4.1 Final Edition Update 2 Hotfix! No GR, no lockup, no slowdown and no problems at all! Runs perfectly and it's fully possible to quit the tracker within the OS and even shut down the computer! This is how I truly like to work, and this is how it should be!

Dungeon 2021 is to be a brand new Level 4 Amiga track for the Ninja Remix game. Oh, I promise it to have a pretty scary intro with a great variety of spooky sound effects, before playing a thrilling new tune for this level!

As the title indicates, Sanctum 2021 is to be the new Amiga track for the 6th and FINAL level of the Ninja Remix game. A true anticlimax in both a dramatic and beautiful way. Also to be in hard work the coming days as you read this blog.
