Could you give me an example how to do this? Thanks.
Is there a way to tell the kryoflux to start writing at someplace besides the index? The thing with PC disks is that if a sector crosses the index, the FDC may not be able to read it.
I think HxC can also rotate tracks with its editor tools, but I don't know how well that works.
It would be nice to know exactly what the copy protection code is actually doing, but I don't have time to dig in to that myself.
The way the protection is laid out, I have wondered if it could detect a splice anywhere on the track. But the weird thing is there appears to be breaks at the beginning and end of each sector (in other words, the track was not written all at once) and even the protected bits look like they may have been written after the rest of the track. But that would have to be very timing sensitive, which is more than a real FDC can really do I think, and the bit of fuzing with PCE made it look like the protection was not trying to be that exact.
Have not had time to mess with this any more lately.
@Someguy, This could be what your talking about the "splice" and copying across the index. In the case of Voyetra's Sequencer Plus MKI using Softguard SuperLok v3.00 Kit copy protection, this obviously affects it. I guess Transcopy had all the copy protection schemes pretty much worked out and integrated in their software making duplicating relatively easy. Seems Alan Silver was the man and still is... or was...
Would be good to see this copy protection scheme or something simular to the "copy across index" added to DTC making write back easier.
On a side note these dumps via transcopy 3.0 and the option board work perfectly with DOSBoxTC when mounted as a floppy image. Great note for the emulation side of things.
