Re: Monitor 4k and the Java GUI

Just tried it on 4k myself.
You can just try and resize the window at the bottom right corner - however this does not seem to persist for subsequent launches.
The font size is not ideal either...
I'll let our Java GUI expert know about this and see if he has any advice.

Re: Firmware v3

Additionally, the name of the firmware file is indeed firmware_kf_usb_rosalie.bin.
I think we may have to clarify in the manual that firmware.bin is not the actual file name - thanks :)

Re: Questions about new Graph capability in DTC

The hardware sampling starts way before the samples are actually taken. For a "real" disk this should be more than enough, but I could create one where the signal would be incomplete. Regardless, the stream index decoder handles this - luckily simple to do mostly because the complex things happen af...

Re: Questions about new Graph capability in DTC

Actually, that case is handled by the stream decoder and there are dumps like that. However, the meaning of 0 is not what you expect - you'll see why from the decoder source. The problem is what happens at the very last index if that's a 0 value and sampling has stopped - as normally it does at that...

Re: Apple II disk Grrr.....

Actually, the -a8 parameter depends on your flippy drive type, if it's a Panasonic flippy modded drive, chances are it should be -b-8
It is also very likely that what you need is -dd1, but as Rakki said please do test first what setting switches your drive into DD mode.

Re: Apple II disk Grrr.....

Any kind of standard A2 disk can be decoded/verified fine, copy-protection related data or custom formats will need user defined formats for decoding. However, with DTC 2.72 or later you can use the consistency graphs to see the sample quality of the dump you made (thus know whether the disk should ...

Re: Questions about new Graph capability in DTC

...which is the consequence of having timer=0 in the index OOB and pointing to a non-existent or empty cell or something like that.

Re: Questions about new Graph capability in DTC

One problem was indices with 0 time before and after the signal which is not possible. There might have been something else too, but fix that and we'll see if it still fails.

Re: Weird block sizes

Would be interesting to see stream dumps of such disks.
A generic FM/MFM controller definitely can't handle 192 bytes per sector - it can only use power of 2 sector sizes starting with 128.
