Shared drive instability

Postby Cyprian » Mon Jan 11, 2016 2:39 pm

I faced some issues with Shared drive:
  • When I open drive C, the Desktop very often shows me empty window. When I press "ESC" then I see valid list of files.
  • When I try open text/prg file, the Desktop shows info that there is no such a file
  • Flip_O demo can't find its data file which is in the same root directory: "ERROR: No FLIPO-DEMO MSA file found in the current directory" viewtopic.php?f=103&t=29157
  • I'm not able to open some directories under the Desktop. But under CosmosEx's console I'm able to open it and see its content viewtopic.php?f=103&t=28944#p285947

Hello Cyprian,

Sorry for my late response, I've been busy with fixing / improving floppy reading (which now seems better than it was).

Thanks for the report, I will investigate that. I already have a guess why is that happening.

No problem Jookie. That's understandable that the family has higher priority.

Regarding For Flip-O demo I discovered another issue with Fopen/Fseek functions for Translated drives:

I case of need I can provide my test code.

Wait, this time it was mroe about fixing the floppy issues than about family ;) Although the family was slowing me down with fixing the issue :)

The test code would be awesome - each issue I can more easily reproduce can be fixed faster than others...

Cyprian,

I will try to solve this one, or something which might be related to this one - there's some lagging happening sometimes in the communication with Hans (the hard drive interface chip), that might be causing this. This instability / lagging is now my top priority.

The instability / lagging should be better in the latest update. Please check if you experience it after updating.
