Re: SCSI harddrives...

I've bought HDDriver long ago and there's an option to format up to 512Mb Windows-compatible partitions. So at the time, I bought a few 512Mb SD Cards, and I can put them in a PC, copy the files, have them back into the UltraSatan and boot the ST with them.
I'm happy with it ever since !

Re: My new Cumana drive ;)

I've been fantasising of modelling an expansion bay style enclosure that can accommodate the Atmos/Oric by just sliding it on to the base, so there'd be a box under the Oric for the PCB's and relevant ports for USB receptacles, etc. I'm kind of fatigued by the cable mess of my Oric setup and would ...

Re: SCSI harddrives...

I've bought an UltraSatan a while ago and I've been really happy with it.
Still have the whole "Link II" things for SCSI, but haven't used it in years.
(That being said, I don't plug the ST every day... A few times a year, at best).

Re: My new Cumana drive ;)

It looks great indeed.

I see the batch is sold, time to think about it and too late ;)
So, will there be a V2? (if you love challenges: with additional 3.5" drive in the case? :p )

Forum's seach engine

Hi, I'm not going to start by an intro on "how it is important and cool to be able to find back information in such forum that has years and years of useful information" (ok, just did it ;) ) Now I experienced a strange behavior: I was looking for the thread about the game O-Thrust. So I just typed ...

Re: Bocco's adventures

But I'm quite sure it happened to me before. I tried to search the forum but it seems that the search engine has sometimes difficulties finding very old posts - and that Dbug already told about issues with the search. It's not really an issue with old messages, it's more the fact that the search en...

Re: Bocco's adventures

Rax: are you playing on an emulator? What springs to mind in such problems is a variable that hasn't been initialized, and whose value depends on the emulator's state at start. Dom, did you try changing the RAM pattern at start with Euphoric? We've seen this before, eh Symoon? ;) Indeed, but all I ...

Re: Sedoric's TAKE command, help required...

From Sedoric à nu , here is the code where the amount of pages/bytes is calculated for the command MOVE in Sedoric 3. I'm too tired to check if it's correct or not, especially if a SEC isn't missing. I'll let you guys do ;) With #1000 and #1100 if I'm not mistaken, according to the command doc, we s...

What is missing so far is direct support of Oric DSK format, but as I said this will be changed soon. :)
Good news!
See how lost I was, I thought that Zaxon's Cumana+Gotek drive was directly dealing with DSK files.
