StrongARM compatible games

Post by JonAbbott »

Listed below are games that have been tested for StrongARM compatibility using the ARMv4 JIT in ADFFS 2.73+ with the cache consistency checker enabled. The primary purpose of this testing is to confirm advertised StrongARM games are truly compatible and over time also check older games that appear to run on StrongARM (ie released pre RISC OS 3.70)

Note that testing is not 100% accurate as every instruction would need to be executed to be certain. These results have come from playing the games for a short period of time.

Where games are reliant on OS fixes or disabling the CPU cache for their StrongARM compatibility, this has been noted.
