Gotek & HcX Disk Swap Issues

Postby richyb808 » Thu Jul 28, 2016 9:19 pm

Hi,

Using a Gotek with HcX, latest firmware and file selector. A few demo's don't seem to recognise disk swaps? Antiques by Dune can't see disk 2 despite it being mounted to drive B on slot 1 and I've also tried having it in slot 1 & then disc 2 in slot 2.

Froggies Over The Fence works OK but when I reset it asks for disk 1 to get to the reset demo, even though the disk is mounted to slot 1.

Any ideas?

Ta, Richard

After some further testing, the same thing happens with the Lotharek SD Card Floppy Emulator on the same disks, latest firmware on that too.

Loaders of most demos do not support a physical drive B:

Try placing all floppies in the slots for drive A: and select different slots when prompted.
