Re: ADFFS 2.54

I think in the short term we need some sort of beginners guide for ADFFS on the Pi. Run !ADFFS Double-click on floppy image Select "Boot floppy" from the ADFFS Filer I suppose you could add additional steps about extracting !ADFFS from the ZIP, ensuring !SparkFS is loaded and where to download the ...

Re: ADFFS 2.54

Semi-related to what Vanfanel said, but... I think in the short term we need some sort of beginners guide for ADFFS on the Pi. Unfortunately, getting RISC OS working on a Pi is a bit of a faff. I was thinking about writing up some instructions to get someone from downloading the RC14 image to playin...

Re: 26bit Module support

Out of interest, if you use AnyMode, does it work without needing the special mode in the MDF?

Re: NOOBS issues

That looks like the issue I had when I tried the same. I am sure I posted about it here. I have a feeling it was down to monitor type or the selected MDF. AnyMode did not seem to help, which I couldn't understand!

Re: Game requests

I have the CD version (somewhere!). It had no protection. I copied the entire game to a spare hard disk so a friend of mine could play it. There was no requirement to run via CDFS or such. I think CD burners and large disks were expensive back then!

Re: Update on next release

Ah, I was wondering if there was more to it.

If you don't mind explaining (and please point me elsewhere if it has already been written!), what makes the Wimp SWIs a special case?

Re: Update on next release

Wow. Lots of good stuff posted today!

I have been meaning to ask, what exactly is meant by 'wimp support'? Those games which have wimp front ends for config?
