Re: RO 3.11 e-format1600, e-format800 & USBJoystick filename length issues.

Even rebooting the machine etc. didn't manage to get it working. In the end though I discovered Linux allows for mounting ADFS which meant I could copy and paste everything off the drive from the Acorn in one go through a live environment which was great to discover since I wasn't looking forward to...

Re: RO 3.11 e-format1600, e-format800 & USBJoystick filename length issues.

Now that I've got all these disk images, the Acorn no longer wants to read the 720kb floppy I've been using for all the uniboot etc. copies which I was about to use to transfer the images off the computer with. If I try to format it (and other test disks) on the Acorn it says bad drive, has this dis...

Re: RO 3.11 e-format1600, e-format800 & USBJoystick filename length issues.

I found a post on stardot and worked out the following which I'll put here for anyone else who may find the thread with the same problem: *CONFIGURE BOOT *CONFIGURE FILESYSTEM ADFS *CONFIGURE DRIVE 4 *DRIVE 4 *OPT 4 2 Both UniBoot from RISC OS Ltd's 3.11 FTP server, and UniBoot2 work out of the box....

Re: RO 3.11 e-format1600, e-format800 & USBJoystick filename length issues.

Update: I have edited the wimp min/max, downloaded jetfighter for a test image and have also now got UBoot2 over to the Acorn, and merged in yesterdays downloaded System merge from the ROOL site. However at the point in the instructions where it tells you to type OPT 4 2 I get the message: FileCore ...

Re: RO 3.11 e-format1600, e-format800 & USBJoystick filename length issues.

I haven't yet tried with Uniboot2. I have however merged the new ROOL System into the current Uniboot (made no difference to the missing text as an aside) and modified the imagingJFD basic file to the shortened filenames and installed SparkFS as when I read your instructions I misread it as SparkPlu...

Re: RO 3.11 e-format1600, e-format800 & USBJoystick filename length issues.

I didn't actually have a boot sequence as it was a new drive, so after some Red Squirrel compressing, floppy disk transferring I managed to get UniBoot 3.10x from the Risc OS FTP over to my A4000, but unfortunately the same problem occurs. I did however manage to guess where in the empty list the ga...

Re: PackMan Issues.

Thanks for the reply, I thought PackMan would have been updated as part of the 5.24>5.27 nightly build upgrade since I thought it was a default included app. Also thanks for the CTRL+SHIFT+F12 since earlier the only method I could find was to pull the power plug out which I was loathe to do but just...

Re: RO 3.11 e-format1600, e-format800 & USBJoystick filename length issues.

Thanks for that, on the subject of recording files I've got the problem on my A4000 that on trying to select a recording file to image with, the list is only one character long and only shows the alphabet because of this. I can click the blank spaces and it does fill in the title as if I were clicki...

Re: [How To] Transfer ADFFS to a non-networked Acorn/Archimedes.

It might be useful to have the list since it would allow people to choose what they have to copy across depending on what machine they have.

The machine I'm on is an A4000 and I do hope to image the few games I have that aren't currently distributed in the hope of using them on my Pi.

PackMan Issues.

Hi, Just got my Pi working and decided to try out PackMan and I discovered Burn Out [SA] edition fails to install due to an illegal character in its' package name. Also the original SimCity is missing from the PackMan list, but I see the forum thread for it does say 5.x is experimental and may crash...
