Re: New to KryoFlux, what can (and can't) it do?

As for IPF files: there are literally thousands of them out there that are guaranteed to be 100% identical to the original disk they were imaged from.
IPF files are also integrated to emulators via the SPS Decoder Library - which I called IPF library due to bad habit before ;)

Re: New to KryoFlux, what can (and can't) it do?

Another example: You have a copy-protected Amiga game. 1, create stream files; if the disk is likely to have AmigaDOS tracks mostly, add -5 as well as a guide format. 2, convert your stream files to a CT Raw image (-i2) and use it in a recent version of UAE. You will need to add the SPS Decoder Libr...

Re: New to KryoFlux, what can (and can't) it do?

To clarify: DTC supports tons of formats, but some of the formats listed are actually sets of various formats related to the image format (-i) selected. e.g. generic FM/MFM covers a lot of possible permutations for disk controller parameters. Other good examples are V-MAX!, RapidLok or Vorpal images...

Re: New to KryoFlux, what can (and can't) it do?

BBC Micro disks should just work fine as generic FM formats (-i3) - if not, please post the problem image :) There are hundreds of possible format permutations used by FM and MFM controllers - like the one in BBC Micro - and all of those are simply referred to as generic FM/MFM by DTC. So while DTC ...

Re: New to KryoFlux, what can (and can't) it do?

As SomeGuy said it can function as an "analog copier", but currently the tracks to be copied have to be index synced. This is a limitation of the host soft software, and will be changed in future host software updates. For Amiga and Atari ST (and CPC, Spectrum+3 etc) I'd recommend writing IPF files ...

Re: The effect of -dd0/-dd1 option

Interesting idea actually, but only if it's optional, e.g. on some drives simply produce noise in one setting...
It is also worth keeping in mind that it requires 500ms+ to reliably switch the density line not to mention RPM switching (usually) between 300 and 360.

Re: Apple II disk Grrr.....

Indeed, I think these are among the first few A2 game dumps we have; I mostly had some OS images I used while adding support to DTC.

Re: How to dump IBM HD 5.25" Disks?

Because format local (specific) parameters are valid from the beginning of the command line until the first guide format (-i), then the first parameter after the last guide format until the next guide format and so on. The main reason for that was that some parameters have both format local as well ...

Not an issue as long as the disk is professionally duplicated - Trace couldn't :)

Re: Apple II disk Grrr.....

Actually, this is wheregraphs (specifically the green/red bars at the bottom) can help a lot. You can see if the dump contains inconsistent data, even if it's not decoded. What you cannot see though if the data is consistently bad... ie always reads the same, but it's all bad would show as consisten...
