online floppy disk downloads not working ?

Postby Starfrog » Mon Apr 25, 2016 6:28 pm

when i try to get downloads from the cosmosex floppy disk database it shows me the disks but doesnt download them when i select them for download ? F3 and select location and then it just says 0% all the time ? I know the net is working as I've done updates and can see the list of disks available ?

You are right, but this time it's not the fault of CosmosEx, but the server with the floppy images is down...

The page with floppy images is here (this one works):
http://steem.atari.st/automation.htm

...and the images themselves are stored here:
ftp://ftp.cs.tu-berlin.de/
...which seems to be down. If the server will get back up, the download will be fine. If it won't (like never ever...) then we have to figure out either some other source of those images, or host those images somewhere...

Let's check the state of that server in few hours / days again and see if it works or not.

Both of the point to the same server, so they are both down.

Is there anyway we could change the link within CosmosEx ? that would allow us to go to other sites that have the files. It would also be great to be able to just download individual files onto the desktop.

You could change it manually in your local images list, or once there will be a different server, I can change it and all the devices should update that list in them. (The file is called imagelist.csv and you should have it somewhere in your device).

If by desktop you mean to SD card or USB drive, then you can - you just choose the right folder on some.
If by desktop you mean on your PC, then you can - through the web browser :)
