Yes, I tried and I get some illegal instruction error.
I did have the same kind of problem with Fireworkz, and it was a SSE problem.
But perhaps it's a MMX issue too. I don't know.
That's why I would like to test with some other build options, and check it on some
I can test it on VIA processors, Duron/Athlon, Pentium II/III, but also Vortex86.
I have hundreds of old computers 🙂

Have you tried it? Guessing from the filename of the toolchain
