Detecting EMUTOS ?

We all know the TOS version is in the TOS header images, such as 0104 etc.. I believe EMUTOS reports TOS102... But is there any actual way to detect the file is actually EMUTOS and not original TOS ? and possibly the emutos version number ?


EDIT:

I assume this is how it would be done...

Precisely. Check for 'ETOS' at ROM offset $2C.
For now, we have no mechanism to detect EmuTOS version number.

Done! Since 29/10/2019 (current EmuTOS snasphots, and future release):
- Look at ROM offset $2C. If 'ETOS' is there, then it's EmuTOS (works for all EmuTOS versions, including old ones)
- Look at offset $34. If 'OSEX' is there, then the new EmuTOS extended header is present, including version information. If not, no version information is availble.
- Look at offset $40. There is a LONG. It is the file offset to the version string (the one displayed on the welcome screen)
- Or if you prefer, look at offset $3c. There are 4 bytes: MAJOR,MINOR,FIX and UNOFFICIAL. If UNOFFICIAL is set to 0, this is an official release (version indicated by MAJOR,MINOR,FIX). If UNOFFICIAL is set to 1, then it is an unofficial version (i.e. development snapshot) built after the MAJOR,MINOR,FIX release.

@BlankVector Do these changes appear in 0.9.12 ? That the latest one I can find, but is dated before the date you mention...
