Re: ADFFS 2.64

That's cool. Using !ADFimager really isn't a trauma at all considering it takes well under 10 seconds to create an ADF when the JFD is loaded into memory via ADFFS. Another quick question (sorry!) can I alter the JFD metadata after image creation? In this case I'm creating JFDs of a copy of Impressi...

Re: ADFFS 2.64

Jon, Can you use ADFFS to write JFDs back to a physical floppy? At the moment I'm converting all my self-made ADFs to JFDs to make use of the archive and index/inventory features that JFD has, along with the much decreased image file size. However if I need to write one back to a physical floppy I'm...

Re: ADFFS 2.64

Hi Jon, Zip attached with a potential bug. It contains two ADFs of a 1.6MB "F" floppy containing the Cumana Parallel Port CD drivers and CDFS. The ADFFS created image will not open when loaded as Filecore does not understand the disc. The second ADF image was created with !ADFimager v1.00 by Douglas...

Re: ADFFS 2.64

Hi Jon, I know I've asked before so this'll be the last time for a while! I'd be very happy to help test the alpha and beta releases of each new version. Not only do I have a fairly wide range of machines which I use on an almost daily basis - StrongARM RISC PC with 4.02 in ROM and softload up to 6....

Re: ADFFS 2.63 beta

I understand that.

At least you know I've been putting the hours in with my RISC PC and A3010 with all those ADFS timeout errors!

Re: ADFFS 2.63 beta

Ah. How does one get involved with the project? I've got a load of original software, RISC PC, A3010 (Adelaide) etc.

Very happy to help in whatever way I can.

Magnetoids

I've got the demo on an Acorn User magazine floppy (September 1994 - my first, and the day I got my A3010 as an 11 year old boy!)

Does anyone know if the full game has ever been released? I know people are having trouble finding Digital Symphony as well. It looks like Oregan just up sticks and left!

Re: Resurrecting the original ArcVenture series

I've just moved my school over to the hosted version of SIMS from Facility CMIS. Their remote app is hopeless! It can take minutes to login, load SIMS and pass the credentials through.

I wish I'd stayed self hosting.
