Re: FDS header date fields

HAHA! So many revisions! This one is a cool change. Is there something to look for as far as the disk data? Like could I see a bad disk or one that has been demagnetized? Hmmm... only partially. If there's no disk header at the start, my program will error out, so corrupted disks like this will not...

Re: FDS header date fields

Okay, I've had fun making some code to read some of the timings from FDS disks and display them. http://chrismcovell.com/data/FDListNAM2021.zip This version has a mode that will report/show the gap sizes at the start of the disk and between files (GAP numbers are not in any direct byte/msec format)...

Re: FDS header date fields

I see! What about the CopyRight date? Should that number be consistent amongst different revisions of the same game? If not what could that mean? From there, I assume that the "Written" date can be overwritten and changed if it was taken to a local kiosk as well, yes? Assuming the kiosk itself must...

Re: FDS header date fields

Even better! This is pretty awesome for a tool now. When it comes to the disk listing for the "Written" label it only captures the initial writing date, correct? Like say if I wrote a Doki Doki Panic using FDSStick it would have a written label that's from 1987 instead of 2021, yes? Yes, FDSStick d...

Re: FDS header date fields

OK, I've made a newer version of the Disk Lister that lets you read the disk the old way, or you can press START to put it into a deeper scanning mode, which will display more of the disk's header, as well as try to read and display all file headers on the disk. http://chrismcovell.com/data/FDListN...

Re: FDS header date fields

Oh yeah I forgot Tomy (Tototek) is selling the read/write cable. Since oRBIT2002 is Swedish that's also were he will have to buy the FDSStick, so he can combine shipping. Yeah I know Copy Master has speed measuring function. I'm not convinced that you can get disks to work universally on all drives...

Re: FDS header date fields

Yeah the FDSStick is great in many ways. Better than a flashcart for running FDS homebrew since it uses the real RAM Adapter for authentic expansion audio goodness. You just need to build the read/write cable if you want to dump or write disks. To write disks, the disk drive must additionally be wr...

Re: FDS header date fields

I've been meaning to update my FDS Listing program, but date / disk ver. info is not accessible in the data returned by the BIOS subroutine that my program uses. I'll have to rewrite the program to access the header files by directly reading them. (So don't count on an update anytime soon.) Ahh, th...

Re: FDS header date fields

Neat! I have a great interest in this as I am collecting FDS games. Is there a way for you to incorporate this into your old "FDS Disk Listing Program" as well? I've been meaning to update my FDS Listing program, but date / disk ver. info is not accessible in the data returned by the BIOS subroutin...

Re: FDS header date fields

Of course, that makes perfect sense. I've updated FDSList to show disk contents like this now: ------------------------------------------------------- DISK 'DRM ' Side A Files 7 Maker $01 BootID Lim. $0F Disk/Game Ver. 2/0 (C)/Written 1986.11.26 / 1987.09.15 ----------------------------------------...

Re: Project Nested - NES emulator for SNES

Project starting to get really good! :) I will have to ask however -- is it possible to have the compiler automatically load in the settings for the games that require them before the .smc file is built? I personally don't have an issue reading the compatibility document and dialing in the required ...

Re: Project Nested - NES emulator for SNES

Btw, I posted a video of this project at work on YouTube... at least on a Super NT. https://youtu.be/irF8gSVrVOs Awesome! Thanks for uploading! :D The screen transition full of zeros in Zelda never happened in the pre-release version, I'll have to investigate. Welcome! The video seems to have picke...

Re: Project Nested - NES emulator for SNES

Pretty interesting project! I got the ROMs working on Snes9x 1.60 as well as the SD2SNES v1.10.3. It also works off of the Super NT SD card slot with jailbreak firmware 6.9. It wouldn't be a stretch to say that it'll work on the MiSTer, but I have a number of chores to do before I can check that ou...
