Oricutron HFE

Post by Steve M »

Could Oricutron be used to load HFE files? Could it then be used to produce a disk image from the HFE file?

No, Oricutron doesn't support HFE file format at all, so far.

Would love HFE support in Oricutron!
(Even better would of course be native DSK support on the Cumana Reborn)

In fact it does not need to support hfe directly, but any container format for which a conversion already exists. As I said before, Amstrad edsk is rather similar to Oric dsk and the HxC software can convert from hfe to it.

I put some links do information in some other post.

Thanks . I'll look it up again.

I just thought that as Oricutron was the main emulator these days it'd maybe be a good idea to have it able to use Hfe files - what with all the Gotek and Cumana Reborn users. The software on those doesn't offer an easy way to convert to Dsk image - but maybe Oricutron could via copying files across from an Hfe 'disk' to an Oricutron Dsk.

If this was possible I think it'd also be useful if you could add a blank disk as easily as you could on Euphoric.

Mmmm... not sure I explained myself properly. I agree with you, Steve. It would be great if Oricutron supported hfe, I was just stating that, as a maybe easier alternative, it could support esdk, for which there is already a two-way conversor.
