Apple "Twiggy" disks

Hi, I didn't really know where to put this thread, as it isn't really a feature request, but most discussions about "strange" formats are in this forum, so... Well, let's get to the point. Just out of curiosity, has anyone done any experiments with Apple "Twiggy"/FileWare disks? They were used only ...

Re: KryoFlux - Write support is here and coming to you!

I just tested writing under Windows Server 2008 R2. I guess it's not going to be a very popular platform for this kind of thing, but it works nicely anyway.

Re: KryoFlux - Write support is here and coming to you!

Nah, forget it, WinUAE does the same, it seems to be a compatibility problem with the A1200.

Interestingly enough, it only happens with IPF 1180. The alternate version (IPF 2875) works well if you set the "compatibility mode" (no CPU cache + original chipset mode).

Re: KryoFlux - Write support is here and coming to you!

Just did a few more tests with Jungle Strike AGA, Pinball Illusions and Alien Breed: Tower Assault, with better disks. They all work perfectly.

Writing protected Amiga disks on a PC... it's been a dream for so long that I still can't believe it even after seeing it with my own eyes. :lol:

Re: KryoFlux - Write support is here and coming to you!

I just did a few tests with Robocod AGA and Turrican 1 and 2. They all seem to work on my A1200, but I sometimes get a few random errors here and there. That's probably due to the crappy disks I'm using, though.

Re: 77-track "Japanese style" disks

You can also solder some points on the PCB of a Samsung SFD-312B to make it spin at 360 rpm and read the disks correctly, or even better, connect them to a switch and toggle between 300 and 360. That's what I did before I had the KryoFlux, and it worked very well.

Re: 77-track "Japanese style" disks

As far as I know, it was used on everything. The Sharp X68000, for example, uses the 77-track format on 5.25" disks, while Fujitsu's FM Towns uses the same format on 3.5" disks, and NEC's PC-98 line used both of them throughout its life. It's probably more NEC's "fault" than anyone else, though; the...

Re: Macintosh 400K/800K disks

Nice to know that it works. I dumped and submitted a couple of early Mac games, but they don't work from standard images due to protection (I think).
