Re: 520STE Turbo Pack Disk 1 Indy cannot write back to floppy

OR, you can do the same to the image now! I added this ability with the last version of the software. You can load an image file and "rotate" the track and save that data back to the file. Once you are done rotating the tracks, the disk image would then be index aligned and would write correctly (y...

Re: 520STE Turbo Pack Disk 1 Indy cannot write back to floppy

As I suspected, the disk wasn't formatted aligned to the index hole position and has data "under the index" on most tracks. As I said, I'm not sure those write back tools can deal with that. The SCP copy seems to be the best (should I say, less bad) because it seems you used a write back method tha...

Re: GOEX for ST in the making

I'm seriously considering ordering two, one for my falcon and one for TT. I've always been wary of replacing my floppy drives though. I keep thinking that I am missing a piece of the puzzle. Like, if I want to write some files to a floppy on my PC, I use my usb floppy drive and simply it works on t...

Re: GOEX for ST in the making

Actually FlashFloppy itself doesn't use HxC format for the floppies if run in native mode. Interesting to learn that it doesn't support HFE format in "native mode". How are supported copy protected disk images then ? There *IS* a compatibility binary you can put onto the drive to allow it to operat...

Re: GOEX for ST in the making

FlashFloppy, and hence all derivatives as well, leverages Jeff's HxC work and software. ... Are you sure? From what I know HxC is closed source, commercial product. Was it open source at some point in the past? Most HxC Floppy Emulator parts are open source : https://sourceforge.net/p/hxcfloppyemu/...

Re: GOTEC or HXC

I think it's the other way around, HxC is less powerful than Gotek hardwarewise. I believe HxC only supports the HFE format for this reason, while a Gotek with HxC firmware can support disk formats like .ST directly as it's capable of doing the data <-> FM translation on the fly. HxC also supports ...

"HXCFEMNG.PRG" ? This appears to be the HxC file selector, isn't it ? why you call this the "FlashFloppy image selector" ?

Re: HxC Firmware for Gotek updates.

OSD works great, but only in ST LOW/MED. Technically it could be connected to MONO out, but either to MONO or to COLOR. It also supports separate H+V sync signals, what is not stated here. You need to enable these options. separate H+V sync signals are supported, just rebuild the firmware with the ...

Re: STe - Bad DMA Chip

I agree with siriushardware that defining this as a myth is an overstatement. Is is true that the problem seems to be rather complex, and probably there is a combinations of issues, apparently including indeed, pcb layout. But in many cases replacing the "bad DMA" fixes the problem. Is is true that...

@ijor Closure is syncing to HBL interrupt. What do you think - E-clock differences?
