I'll do that as soon as I can. As for CPU-specific code - I guess you invalidate the cache at some points?

'unpack' it in an emulator.


Understood - but I don't "do" emulators. :roll:

If you have a Windows machine (or run Wine in Linux), MSA Converter can extract the files from the ST image.

Thanks for the release. Is there any chance for the source code to be released too?

Great news and huge thanks to Dan for taking the time and making the effort to get this released.

With Magic being closed source and MINT being a little resource hungry for 16-bit machines, Geneva with its source code could mean exciting times for ST owners.

According to the last sentence from that webpage, there is a chance :)
And if I remember correctly, Dan has confirmed this also in this thread somewhere.

Thank you Dan for the releases! I bought Geneva and Neodesk back in the day and used them until I couldn't resist the internet/WWW any longer. :) Glad to see this preserved now.
