Re: Problems wih IPFs written back to disk on Amiga 500

I too experienced problems when reusing disks when writing back IPFs or ADFs, but as mentioned above, wiping with a magnet could be worth trying. That solved the problem for me.

Re: The CYAN loader

I have since talked to Jani who did some more extensive research on the loader, and all the details given is actually lining up with all the info I got from David, and the fact that Thunder Blade is mentioned, and also is confirmed using that loader, there's no doubt in my mind, at least :)

Re: The CYAN loader

I also checked c64preservation for titles including "Thunder" and that seemed to be a helicopter game, and Thunderblade does indeed seem to contain the "CYAN"-loader. So this loader might be Promat 64 as David suggests, then. :)

The CYAN loader

I've just been in touch with someone who claims he wrote this loader, and if we're talking about the same loader it's also used on Who Dares Wins II from Alligata. Is anyone able to confirm that this one has the early CYAN loader? If it is, the real name of this loader is apparently Promat 64, and w...

Re: G64 Extended format

I'll possibly release it when I've cleaned it up a bit and properly supported the extended format AND the normal one. As of now, the program works only with the extended format (mainly because that is what I needed it for :) ). But it seems your tool is already better than what I have, so you may be...

G64 Extended format

Hi

I'm currently writing a small tool for converting a g64 to ascii and back, but I'm wondering about the extended header... it seems to have 16 bytes for each track, but what are those different values?

Re: Issues writing raw streams

An update here.. I read an original x68000 disk and found no errors while reading it, but when writing it back to real floppy again it was the same. Lots of bad sectors. Now I'm wondering if it may be my drive that isn't too happy about writing HD disks or if there is something else going wrong... I...
