Oricutron and modified disks

Post by Dbug »

Right now, if you have written to a DSK file, there is absolutely nothing in the user interface or the main menu that tells you that the disk is modified, and the emulator does not warn you either when you try to quit, which means any game or application that writes data to disk is by default going to lose all the changes.

The only mention of the fact Oricutron can do save data is in the read me file:

Code: Select all

 F7       - Save all modified disks 
Imo, there are a few things that would really make things better:
  • Add a "Save all modified disks [F7]" option in the main menu
  • Have some icon overlay or image change on the small floppy drive icons at the bottom when they are modified
  • By default warn the user (could be a .ini file option) that they have unsaved changes in disk A/B/C/D

Did you make an issue in the repo for these great ideas? I'll have a go at tackling some of them but I'd want to do a proper PR when I'm finished, including referring to your Issue ..

I did not remember there was actually an issue tracker.
Added one now: https://github.com/pete-gordon/oricutron/issues/195
