0VBRRun is Copyright © 1998-99 Andrew Bell. 0VBRRun is FREEWARE, if you use
it e-mail the author with your suggestions, comments, etc.

0VBRRun is a CLI/Shell based program that requires an MC68010 or better
and dos.library version 39 or better.

0VBRRun is a handy program that enables the user to launch programs from
shell with the VBR (Vector Base Register) set to zero. This is required
because some older demos and games for the MC68000 assume that the VBR
is always 0. For example, I use this program for the game F1GP. When the
program/game/demo quits (if it quits!) the VBR will be restored to its
original address.

WARNING: This program is a hack, do use it with ANY programs that work with
the VBR!

Please note that this program only works with programs that can be launched
from the OS and not programs that use custom trackloaders.

0VBRRun does not like programs that detach their seglist from CLI. This
is because 0VBRRun waits for the program to finish and such programs
fool 0VBRRun into thinking the program has finished, but they are actually
still running. A tell-tale sign of programs that do this is when you run
them from the Shell (WITHOUT the 'run' command) and the prompt is freed-up
ready for you to type more commands in while the program is still running.
Such programs have a GUI associated with them, but not all.

Do not use 0VBRRun from Workbench, because 0VBRRun ignores the WBMsg.

USAGE: 0VBRRun <PutProgramNameHere>

If you're not sure about anything mentioned above, don't use this program.

USE THIS PROGRAM AT YOUR OWN RISK.
