- Elastic Dreams is a 68k executable with, if you had PPC hardware (603e/604e PPC on an accelerator card) at the time it was released in the Classic Amiga era would take advantage of that hardware too, as well as a FPU.
However, if I remember correctly, it is much like Candy Factory Pro - very flaky/unstable, if runnable at all for MorphOS, and in any case it seems like you've not got it installed correctly as it should install the 68k executable, and copy the icon to the executable .info, assign a directory on your system where it all was installed to via the user-startup script, and be able to run it from there. As the "No hexview yet for
" message is an indication that you've not got the program installed correctly as it is intended, as the installation Demo file for Elastic Dreams off Aminet does install as it should, it just halts on the main opening screen (blank page), well that's all it gets to on my MacMini.
I don't think Elastic Dreams works stably or at all with MorphOS, as is the case with Candy Factory Pro, so I would just not bother installing it to try to get it working on MorphOS, as you'll spend time probably getting nowhere other than frustrated with it not loading.
Elastic Dreams was from the same "stable" as BurnIt, Papyrus Office, from Titan Computer.de, along with MotionStudios which is where Candy Factory Pro also originated, IIRC, all of which were quite unstable. That's if Papyrus Office ever got completed fully, as I don't think it ever was fully released.
