[bug?] HxCFloppyEmulator.exe shows IBM 360KB SCP dump as "80tracks 1side"

Hi, as subject states HxCFloppyEmulator.exe v2.1.24.1 shows IBM 360KB SCP dump as "80tracks 1side".

Is that a bug in HxC or that SCP dump is not in correct format / header?

This is also fixed in v2.1.25.2, thank you! :D

Per your change log, i wanted to report it to author of SCP, that he does not correctly fills-in the number of heads, but based on following link, the value of zero is expected:

http://www.cbmstuff.com/downloads/scp/s ... _specs.txt :
BYTE 0x0A is the head number(s) contained in the image. This value is either 0, 1 or 2.
If the value is 0 then both heads are contained in the image, which has always been the
default for all SCP images (except C64). A value of 1 means just side 0 (bottom) is
contained in the image, and a value of 2 means just side 1 (top) is contained in the image.

Yes sure, this and the other issue was the same bug. So both are now fixed !
