    I don't know morphos well and I have to gain experience.
    so sorry for my questions.

    ModePro was recommended to me as it is a 68k application I have seen that it works with Morphos.

    There is a list of applications written for 68k that work with Morphos which are compatible to be consulted.

    What is the degree of compatibility of 68k applications must be tested from time to time and are transparent to Morphos natively.
    I haven't explored this aspect yet.
    For example in the fast readme of ModePro the compatibility with Morphos is not reported but only m68k-amigaos is mentioned
    I hope I have asked the question correctly.

    Thank you.

    Hi there,
    and welcome to the MorphOS-experience.

    Applications/Games for 68k that avoid direct usage of the Amiga-chipsets should work with MorphOS.
    The 68k-emulation works nice and is well tested.

    To really get to know you should just give the needed application a try.
    If it fails, you can ofcourse ask here at MZ for help.

    MorphOS comes with a lot of helpful applications itself, others are available at e.g.
    https://www.morphos-storage.net/

    If you miss something or it does not fit your use-case, you are free to ask :)

    See links there:

    That's because the authors of m68k AmigaOS applications usually don't know if they're compatible with MorphOS and in most cases don't even care. Often, the application in question is even older than the first public MorphOS release.

    You may start by putting a question mark at the end of questions ;-)

    @All
    Thanks for the explanation,
    this increases the fun and combinations to try.
    Of course, I always have questions to ask.
