As you can see in the histogram there a slight "banding" effect in the copy but the overall distribution is respected
In fact the total error depend on the data converted : this may be negligible in some ideal cases, but problematic in other cases.

Re: SCP disk images !

When I add SCP reader/writer in the AIR project I might add a perfect converter at this time, but not high priority Actually it will never be 100% accurate because both files are using different clocks and values will need to be rounded. Therefore benefit from my current implementation is negligibl...

In fact without some specialized tools, you can't be sure : Some master disks was made with a simple computer. So you got write splice and others "Seems modified" symptoms.

Re: Brume's dumps

So AUFIT is not suitable for checking how good a Kryoflux or SCP dump is then if it is not showing real errors! Great that it can recover from the errors but it would be nice to see the raw track information and any possible errors with my dumps. I guess HxC Floppy Emulator provides a better image ...

Re: SCP disk images !

BTW i don't understand why you need to convert KF<>SCP files. Aufit isn't able to load both format ? I don't understand the purpose since you will get the same datas with both.?.

Some recentnd demoscene releases have been out out in .PRG format, and I want to get them running on my ST via HxC2001.

I understand and fully agree that HxC purpose is definitively not to convert from SCP to KF Raw.

Re: AUFIT Program

The number of fuzzy bytes detected by HxCFloppyEmulator 2.1.1.0 on DM/CSB is around 176. This seems a very high number. Aufit 1.1 was detecting fuzzy bytes by just comparing two revolutions and the number was around 30-40. Gothmog pointed out that Pasti imager was usually generating around 70-90 fu...

I tried that once and it did not work. I had a Lemmings floppy disk that was in the same state and glued the metal back onto the magnetic surface.
