For anyone wanting to try out the ROM on a physical RiscPC, you'll need to remove your VRAM expansion, if present, and modify the 'Ask' utility in the download to (i) ensure that you have CLib 5.46(?) or later loaded before invoking 'SoftLoad' and (ii) use the filename of the actual ROM image downloaded from the site.

After that, my findings are pretty much the same as Tom's...that you can boot to the desktop (although I've not got the mouse working yet), with 8MB DRAM recognised/used, but hardware scrolling is not working, probably because Tungsten doesn't actually use 'true' hardware scrolling, and I'm guessing the previous code is either broken or not properly reinstated.

Overall, very promising.
