What is 2020Patch?

System 7.x/8.x 2020 + date fix!

The Date & Time control panel on System 7.1 and later is limited to a range of 1920 to 2019 by an operating system function called ToggleDate. I have created an extension that installs a patch that changes that range to 1941 to 2040, just drag the patch to the System Folder and restart the computer.

System 7.1 has both the General Controls control panel and a Date & Time control panel. The General Controls control panel is also using the new APIs, both work with the patch.

(Uploader note: I had issues using SetDate by Rob Braun. This was the fix for me, as SetDate would crash both basilisk and my Performa.)

Instructions:

Drag the uncompressed extension either to your System folder or Extensions folder. Restart and set the date as you normally would!
