How to create a blank disk for saving games progresses in HxcFloppYEmulator

Post by AmintaOric »

Hi!

As from the topic, I own a Cumana Reborn drive and I would like to know how to create a blank disk for saving games progresses in HxcFloppyEmulator (or with other software...).

Many thanks in advance!

I just copy SED306.dsk.hfe and use it as my blank disk - there is no need to format ever again, with .DSK files around ..

The idea here is to use any image you already have as empty one. So, select one image and copy it to new file renaming it (for instance) to 'empty.hfe'. Boot with SEDORIC, then change the image to the 'empty.hfe' and initialize it without formatting. You can initialize the empty "floppy" as MASTER and it will be bootable, or you can leave it just empty.
Here some visual help :) :

Attached are empty images in DSK and HFE format.
