What's with authors blocking CoffinOS?  I tried to run MuiMapparium - not included with the latest CoffinOS and it wouldn't run.

I guess it's just personal issues with the Apollo-team and egos involved.

Is there any way around it?  Tricking it into thinking it's not running in coffin?

It's actually blocking the Vampire itself, not the OS. Mapparium won't even run on OS 3.1.4 if it detects the Vampire. I know because I've tried. Apparently the developer will remove the block with the next version.

I don't use MUIMapparium, but the following note is on the website:

"With Vampire (at least until Gold 2.9) you have to use the
NoFPU-Version of MUIMapparium. The Vampire FPU is not IEEE754
compatible and therefore does not work with MUIMapparium."

Try older no FPU one, or wait for the next one - author promised to remove "the protection"

It has been explained in this thread EXTERNAL LINK

From my point of view his software will be banished forever. My Vampire is ALB free.
We had enough of Covid.

You think his actions are wrong, that's why you do this too?
Thumbs up!

Back in the day we used to have people make "unofficial after market 3rd party `updates`" to fix just these kinds of problems..
