Re: Struggling with ADFFS/Pi2/RO5.23

I've picked up a proper RPC now, but creating adf's of my old disks has proven problematic. I've replied on another thread to this effect. You need a machine the game will run on first, before you can create the recording file. I'll make the recording files I've generated publicly available, which ...

Re: Creating APD Images

To create the recording file to then image a game, you must be able to run the game on the machine you're attempting to imaging it on. You also need a harddisc to save the recording file too and 4MB of RAM to create the image itself, so for the majority of games that will be a 4MB ARM3 based machine.

Re: ADFFS 2.63 beta

Updated Modules and obey.zip on the dev site. Quark now works and I've updated the boot script so it cleanly exits via CTRL-SHIFT-F12. Whilst testing for the London Show, I did modify some other scripts. You'd have to look in the zip and sort by date to tell which though, as I didn't make a note of ...

Re: ADFFS 2.63 beta

I should have another test build available soon, been a bit delayed by the London Show and follow up testing for Disc Error 20/23/SATA incompatibilities. There's been a lot of bug fixes which came from soak testing the machines for the London Show, RiscPC compatibility is greatly improved as is Iyon...

The really cool update with nicely shaded fills instead of the flat fills for Risc PCs however was not released IIRC. Frank Föhl showed the update in the early 90s on one of our Acorn meetings.
We'll have to see if we can track him down and see if he still has the code.

Re: ADFFS 2.63 beta

How does one get involved with the project? I've got a load of original software, RISC PC, A3010 (Adelaide) etc. You have to have plenty of spare time for testing, unfortunately just about every tester that's joined the project to date has done little or in most cases, no testing, so I'm very reluc...

Re: Beer for Christmas

Glad you appreciate what the project is doing. If you wish to donate, we don't accept money, but I'm always happy to accept any boxed originals that the project doesn't already have. Blitz is one I'm particularly after at the moment as the project submission is missing the disc protection.

Re: Struggling with ADFFS/Pi2/RO5.23

Hello again Graeme. You will need to use the boot script that comes with ADFFS for the version you have. You can find these in !ADFFS.Obey which is a ZIP file, just open it with SparkFS and run the correct script with the ADF mounted. Bare in mind, the scripts are written for the original game relea...

Where is the dev site? Always mentioned, but no link anywhere!!
It's private access for project members only. This is the development forum, which also serves as a public distribution point for the Software and games.

Re: Site will be unavailable from 27th Oct for upgrades

The site upgrade is complete, it may be slow whilst it rebuilds the indexes etc.
