Re: A89: AMS 2.05 and ASM

I beleave that with the doorsos AMS 2.05 beta, and with the newer version of
HW2patch that supports AMS 2.05, you should be able to run games on AMS
2.05. Just download the normal doors file, and replace the actuall file
doorsos with the one from their homepage. After patching the rom with
HW2patch, the few kernal programs I have run worked acceptably.

I hope this helps you some.
