Re: Kryoflux Flippy Disk Preservation Commands

If you dump a real double sided disk as a flippy your options are to either redump it as normal disk of rename the side 1 streamfiles as they're now misaligned by 8 tracks (which also makes you lose the last 8 tracks of that side, if those were used).

Re: Kryoflux Flippy Disk Preservation Commands

Instead of -b-8 use -a2 -b-6 to correct the track offsets that are off by 2 at the moment.

Re: Kryoflux Flippy Disk Preservation Commands

By old tools index aligning G64 I meant when people dumped disks using 1541 and such, there was no info about where the track starts so the data was generally stored in a G64 starting from a beginning of a sector. All the data was also aligned to a byte boundary, and when KF started producing G64s w...

Re: Kryoflux Flippy Disk Preservation Commands

The pattern on the dirmaster image makes me think the disk is a user written disk and not a factory mastered? If this is the case then most likely dirmaster can't handle sectors that are split over the index, ie. where the track "loops". Many tools over the years generated G64 that were nicely index...

Re: Weird block sizes

I don't think 192 is possible.

Standard formats usually only have a value that defines the usual sizes, 128/256/512/1024.

Re: Cassablanca Classic floppies

I've been able to study this system for a while and few observations about the copyprotection: System contains two ROMs, standard Amiga 3.1 kickstart ROM along with another ROM that contains system specific files. Both ROMs are using what's known from many Amiga accelerators a maprom feature, where ...

Re: Write back MFM sector image?

I have used the conversion feature in the HxCFloppy software to generate KF raw files from disk images to write back some disks for experimentation.

I think it was able to generate ipf files aswell.

Re: How to create single, not two, MFM img file from DS 8" disk?

If for example the command is ... -fxxx.img -i3 ... you'll get a single imagefile, while ... -fxxx.img -g2 -i3 ... will separate both sides into separate imagefiles.
