Hi!
Thank you for the great software. I'd like to ask you, if this is possible, to add a checkbox (three state), which is corresponding to pin 2 on the cable. Logic 1, logic 0 and ignored. This will help me, and probably not only me, to switch 5.25 floppies RPM on demand.

Have a nice day!

New version : HxCFloppyEmulator v2.1.8.0
What is the latest version for Mac OS X? When I download from the link the Mac version is 2.0.6.0, with a creation date of December 30, 2016. Is this correct?

thx!

Then would you please provide a link to the updated Mac OS X version? When I click on the link from your post of January 21 2018 and unzip the file, the Mac OS X version of the app still says 2.0.6.0

thank you

Just checked, i have downloaded and tested the archive on Mac. The defaults links are definitively pointing to the the 2.0.8.0. Your browser cache or proxy is probably the problem.

Purging the cache fixed the problem, I think?

Downloaded the file, and when I click on and open the app it says across the top of the app's window:

HxCFloppyEmulator v2.1.8.0.

When I go to "About HxCFloppyEmulator" up on the main menu, it opens a window that says:

Version 2.0.6.0 (59)

In The Finder, if I select the app icon with "Command-I" it says:

Version: 2.0.6.0

...hence my confusion. I am in the process of installing the drive, so as long as it works that's fine.

Here's a compiled version of HXC_floppy_emulator version 2.1.6.0 for ubuntu.

Just need to install libfltk to get it working.

Jeff may add it to the website front page for better access.

NOTE:the whole file is too large to be included here (it misses the libhxcfe.so)

The Mac verrsion doesn't launch. I copied the app into my Applications dir, and double-c-lick on it, but nothing noticeable happens. No icon appears in the Dock either.

Do I need to install it some other way, or do the cli/framework parts have to be installed somewhere?

This is on Mac OS X Mojave 10.14.2 (18C54).

EDIT: I think this is my problem, I misunderstood. I thought this was a file manager for the USB used in a Gotek running HXC firmware, but it seems it is for the actual HxC unit which I do not have, which is probabably why it is not launching. :)

Sorry!

No this is not the reason. It should start. btw i have just updated the archive.

Retry with the new one. If it still doesn't start try this :

The binary isn't signed, so this is probably the issue...
