Extract Modules From Kick.rom

As the title implies, is there such a way to extract the modules of Coffin roms? I would like to use it's modules and build a custom one with various other libs and necessary files. Remus & Rom Split wont extract it's modules as it sees it as unofficial. Or maybe can i find these modules somewhere else? Does anyone know?
 
  Any ideas?

Hi
I do but still it doesn't let me. Anyone else has dane it with Remus? If yes then i might check the installation again in case there is something wrong there.

I try to extract the Kick.rom file which comes with coffin R56.

Since i do it in emulation (still waiting for my V1200) and cant therefore extract it from Vampire, could you upload this Rom you are talking about somewhere to have a look at?
 
  Thanks

On Coffin, there's a coffin.rom loaded in startup-sequence, so it's available in DH0:kickstarts i think

Did what you said and tried extracting Coffin.rom from Devs:Kickstarts with Remus (latest updates installed for apollo cores) but nope. It doesnt work either.

  Emulating A12oo is not enough, ROMS require Vampire card. Currently you cant emulate 68080, so in this sense, this is futile effort.
 
  But, you can make Coffin work on non Vampire systems incl WinUAE, if that is your goal. There are however several Vampire only tools that you wont be able to use, like SAGA drivers, Riva should be replaced with classic 040 version instead of AMMX. However 99% of included is 040 compatible.

That is exactly what I am trying to do. Since I have been waiting for almost a year for my V1200, I decided to explore Coffin OS and it’s Roms and also try to make custom ones with updated modules from 3.1.4. I managed yesterday to extract the Roms (with the help of Haydar) and made a first attempt to update them. Didn’t go very well since I changed a lot of modules all together at once and when tried the rom, it booted but froze after 2 minutes of use.  Will try 1 or 2 modules together at a time so I know what is wrong in case it is. Thanks for your tips though...
