Before any cross compiler goes into development I'd suggest contacting SADE/CR first and getting written permission from them first.


That would certainly be sensible. Precedent might give an idea of what the reaction is likely to be though. Didn't one well-known member of this forum try making a clone of VDS a few years back? I know SADE were very unhappy about it. I don't know whether the person concerned was dissuaded from continuing with it due to legal threats, or because he discovered that the job was harder than it first looked.

Jules,
I think I know what you are referring to here. The details are a little bit different than we are talking about. I think the previous attempt was to make a VDS clone that would run on a Windows platform. Even if it is not a legal issue I still think that it would be an issue of ethics. Legal issues aside, taking something that does not belong to you and calling it your own is just not right. Capitalizing off of someone elses work without at least giving some kind of credit for that work to the rightful person is still not right in my book.

i would like the version numbers able to cope with double digits


They can, unless I misunderstand the question.


i just tried yesterday using double digits and after closing and reopening the project, it defaulted to 1 digit

i'm talking about the version numbers in PROJECT MANAGER or am i missing something to make it work?

I was too, but you are quite right. I clearly remember increasing the limits on the spin edits so you could go to 255.255.255.9999 after someone asked for this. But what I obviously didn't realise was that the numbers are getting truncated either when they are saved to the project file or when they are read back in again. I'll fix this.
