    I do not appreciate some random guy ,who has just "merged" a few fixed zips together, creating the thread. @sykopompos is the hero here and he deserves all the attention. He has spent sleepless nights working on this port.

    I would let the person who actually got the port working, start a new thread

    I will but this is fine for now, the bug fixes are still rolling in left and right and I'm not even entirely surewhat's going on just yet

    What do you mean by " to get thanks and attention ? " obviously who does a hard work to get the job done should get all the thanks and attentions , not someone random guy who merges something and creates a thread !

    I don't really care about the thanks and attention and I couldn't have done it on my own, @defconoi was a huge help and we both agree, let's get the bugs smashed and worry about this thread or that thread. If he wants to put our names up real big in the op, then fine but I don't really care
