Re: What is 'L2' on a Panasonic JU-475-5? I've dislodged mine!

The PSU is the one that came with the Kryoflux, Phobya 12v/5v with the splitter for two 3.5" drives! So if it's not connected will the drive just not work then? Found something that 'looks' to be the same: http://www.sinequanon.co.uk/5uh-2a-square-coil-chokes-useful-ferrite-ring-x4.html but without ...

What is 'L2' on a Panasonic JU-475-5? I've dislodged mine!

Re: Road Runner C64 - Mindscape can't make a working G64!

@BarryB: I'll check the dump and send you a working G64 asap => just sent Received and tested in WinVICE 2.4a, loads fine in both PAL/NTSC. Wrote two copies of the G64 back to some spare Verbatim 5.25" disks and both copies load on a real 1541 and PAL C64 Breadbin! 1541 and C64 also have JiffyDOS i...

Re: Road Runner C64 - Mindscape can't make a working G64!

@Feltzkrone: I dumped the original disk as mentioned in the first post: /DUMPS/C64/BarryB/20-08-2016/Loose Disks/RoadRunner[LooseDisk][Commodore64].7z

So if a working g64 can be made i'd very much appreciate that!

Well, you have far superior knowledge about the disk structure than me, so I guess what's happening is it can't read some of those bytes (as they are not there or not correct format) so just keeps looking ad infinitum!

Re: Road Runner C64 - Mindscape can't make a working G64!

Right, so unsupported at this time then and I guess it will fail when written back to disk and loaded on real hardware? It seems to be continually reading track 1 because if you detach the disk from WinVICE it drops to a READY prompt and the drive indicator flashes an error. At least I have the stre...

Road Runner C64 - Mindscape can't make a working G64!

Obtained a Loose Disk of Road Runner ages ago, distributed by Mindscape which I can't make a working G64 of? I believe this is from the Arcade Mega-Hits Vol.1 compilation and no idea if PAL or NTSC! Retried today to see I could make it work but no luck. The disk has ben dumped and on the ftp: /DUMPS...

Re: Wheels Of Fire C64 shows 2 tracks out!

Think I've sorted it, used -a4 -b-4, now both sides are showing correctly, not 2 tracks out!
