HxC Slim beep codes with direct access/file selector

Post by bjt » Mon Mar 23, 2015 1:22 pm

Hi,

I'm porting the Amiga file selector to DOS. When I select an image and exit the selector, the HxC tries to change to the new image (I think). However it fails and starts to beep repeatedly. The pattern is two beeps followed by a long pause.

I need to debug my code further but was wondering what this beep code means?

Thanks

PS. Here's a pic to show current progress:

The cfg file probably don't point to the good HFE fat cluster. The emulator fail to read the HFE file.

Yep, that was it. (Short)DirectoryEntry requires explicit single-byte packing, as it has a long member at an odd offset.
Working great now, I'll spend some time tidying up the UI.

Thanks!

I was about to ask if anybody is actually using these for dos computers as I haven't seen any mention of a dos file selector. Looks great!
