Help needed on EMAX HD X HXC Rev F

Post by GTO » Wed Apr 03, 2019 9:30 am

Greetings,

I do apologize in advance if this has been posted before, recently installed HXC Rev F Floppy Emulator with the following issue:-

I am able to load the OS upon startup, however, when I need to load presets, Emax is always asking me to "insert disk", even though the SD card that booted up the Emax is in the drive.

To resolve this issue, I simply search for the emaxos.emax.hfe and choose the file in the drive to load and then choose the preset i wish to load.

Same while I was trying to enter DIGITAL PROCESSING , Emax again asked to insert disk.

Nonetheless, I am able to operate the Emax with presets loaded, just wondering if there is a better way around than having Emax always asking for the OS disk when I try to load presets.

Thanks in advance.

Peace
JY

ok. copy the emaxos.emx file with the emax files before converting them.

Jeff,

Possible elaborate further? what do you mean by
copy the emaxos.emx file with the emax files before converting them
What i did before was : -
Emax_Bios_Disc.hfe was renamed to emaxos.emx.hfe (just rename, no conversion was done on this file)

All other sound program files were converted to .hfe in HxCFloppy Emulator (OSX).

and i load both the os and .em1.hfe files into the SD card

Thanks in advance

Peace
JY

The emaxos.emx file is the OS file to merge with your sound file. when available, the hxc software merge both files and produce the hfe file.
you can find it on various web site.

Hi,

After searching for more info on the forum along with Jeff's input, here is where I am with the Emax : -

I found the matching OS for the Emax & batch converted all .EM1 files using HXC software with the Emax OS from the same folder, merging the OS with the .EM1 files into .HFE format. . After all conversion & finally config HXCSDFE.CFG to be added to the SD card.

Now the SD card loaded with all the converted files along with the OS, I am able to boot the Emax and passed the "loading software" stage and the Emax autoloaded a preset directly from the internal HD.

However, when I try to load programs from the SD card, the display will show "Different Rev Software".

The workaround is to scroll on the HXC drive to load the OS again & loading the preset from the SD becomes possible. I thought the merging of OS and .EM1 files during batch conversion should fix this issue.

Also, entering the Analog Processing module also prompts "Different Rev Software", the workaround is the same as above mentioned.

Did I miss any step(s) mentioned above?

Any input Highly Appreciated.

Cheers!

Peace
JY
