New HxC Files selector/Manager available !

Post by Jeff_HxC2001 »

A new update of the files selector for all the SDCard HxC Floppy Emulators (Rev B/C/F/Slim) and HxC-Gotek Floppy Emulators is available.
This is a major rework of the interface. I hope that you will like it.
(Note : The Amiga version was also updated).

I love this interface with my HxC USB [smilie=greencolorz4_pdt_12.gif] I do have an issue with the recent BETA firmware 3.0.8.2a that supports the ST/IMG disk images seems to corrupt the CFG file,and refuses to recognise the USB disk on the next cold start, :( will test this again tonight. Unless its something wrong with my HxC 8O

Update
----------

I have confirmed it is a corrupt config file, whats causing it is still unknown, when a USB drive is not recognised by HxC I replace the configuration file on next boot it is recognised. :shrug:

Superb! I wonder whether plain GEM version has been considered too?

Thanks Jeff I will try this version tonight, I haven't had the issue for a few days now. I may have confused things by restoring an incompatible version of the config file.
