IPF and Openness

I dont see why anyone wants to create their own ipf files though?

Nor am I sure why anyone thinks they are qualified to do it?

Not ignoring the rest of your post it's all good comment, but that's the part that stands out, to me at least.

I fear that nay be off topic though, sorry.

IPF and Openness

Bit of a ramble here from my phone... We aren't trying to make money from IPF. But we'd like to avoid people using the thing to make serious revenue from it, and we get nothing. Ideally, this won't happen so no worries. I don't personally support gpl or viral licensing, certainly not for this, and I...

3.5" and 3" disks on the same cable possible?

I have just tried an eme-156 here. It seems that on the untwisted cable the drive responds to the motor command as ds1 but the data and stepping respond as ds0 On the twisted side the motor responds as ds0 and nothing happens on ds1 If I put the jumpers 'together' in single drive mode the drive work...

Re: Drives confirmed working with KryoFlux

i have one of those here, its a double sided 80 track drive, and the test dumps that came out of it were useless, needs more investigation, but due to head offset etc i dont think its really worth bothering, the next UI release will automate the dumping of flippy disks, were working on that now.

3.5" and 3" disks on the same cable possible?

Not sure about this, I had trouble making the drive work unless the board was jumped as single drive mode.

That said once it worked I didn't look further.

I might give this a go myself tomorrow if I get a chance.

Mac OS X support is go!

I think hydr0x' post is correct, the website should be clear and announce 'hey dudes new version released with Mac support'

It's big news.

I see the GUI taking over from the console for most people within a couple of releases.

Re: Negative track numbers

i see what you are saying, if the heads could travel that far then yes the surface of the disk should allow it. however, if the heads could allow side 0 to go to track 90 then side 1 would be 98 at that point, this would go on and on. the drive rail will have physical limits, and within these limits...

Re: Please test: SLOW firmware

this has fixed the stepping of my 3" CPC drive.

i can now dump from a start track of 38 and end track of 41 and it seeks correctly every time. it also appears to reset to trk0 consistently correctly now too.
