HxCFloppyEmulator Automated File into disk IMG

Post by chrisf » Tue Dec 04, 2018 5:01 pm

Hi

Im putting a single file into a disk image using the disk browser .smc files to use on my snes super wildcard , the process is going to take an age doing this manually :(

Is there a way to automate the process from a folder full of .smc files and create a .img file containing 1 smc file inside 1.6mb fat12 .img file ?

thanks

you can use the batch converter.

hi
thanks for your reply
there is no option in the batch converter to output to .img
i tried a few different formats and they didn't work
what format would you suggest ?

Hi

Thanks for your response
That does not work either it creates an .img file but if you then try and open it with floppy disk file browser it says
No DOS Image Loaded !

Im unsure how this would work as an .smc file is not a disk image ?
im wanting to create a dos floppy image with an .smc on it

thanks

Yes sure, but the software should automatically create an dos image with the smc file.
please share one of them.

This supersized img is valid... if you keep it in HFE format for the HxC emulators.
What are you trying to do exactly ? Are you using it with the hxc floppy emulators ?

hi

Im using it on a gotek with hxc

The problem is the output format for a super wildcard needs to be 1.44 mb or 1.6mb dos format , so im unsure as to why this program is creating supersize images when the files going on are 1.50mb approx max ?

Can the output format for smc in the batch converter be changed to 1.6mb dos .img ? as that's all you would ever need for smc files ?


creating this format manually with the disk browser works fine

thanks

This is to support SMC > than 1.6MB without splitting them.
Have you tried the HFE files ?

hi

i tried the hfe file , it just starts loading then shows an error on the tv screen on the wildcard

the wildcard doesn't support higher capacity drives that an normal pc one , so the bigger roms (smc) have to be split
