Conversion tools for the floppy format of the Sequential Prophet 2000/2002

Post by kmi9000 » Thu Dec 13, 2018 10:52 am

Hi,

I would like to announce some small command-line tools that can convert floppy image files in IMG-format for the Sequential Prophet 2000/2002 into syx-files, and vice versa. In turn, the syx-files can be converted into p2k-files, and vice versa.

These tools are open-source and can be found here:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/p2000floppy/
https://sourceforge.net/projects/p2ksyx/

Further information and usage examples can be found in the README-files within the distributions.
I have tested the tools with some floppies which I have converted via "HxCFloppyEmulator" into IMG-files.
It works well so far. Nevertheless, the tools are still not fully tested, so they could be buggy and/or incomplete, so there is no warranty... (Please see the disclaimers within the README-files.)

Hope this is helpful.

Regards,
kmi9000

Thank you very much!

You made my day!!

BTW I'm writing a sample conversion tool and need more detailed info about the Prophet 2000/2002 format.
Is there a specification document somewhere? I would like to add support for the Prophet 2K on both IMG and syx format but can't find the full specification.

Thank you in advance.
