Congratulations for this new version of your manager :D Amazing job :!:
Just one thing i find annoying : it's a bit too "blue" for my eyes ... hard to read ... maybe an option to change fonts/colors ?

Colors are more personal taste.. that's why we sticked with blue theme, which is the default when booting the CPC. If it's your "only issue", then I'm more than happy. :D

salut,

moi j'adore les couleurs de la nouvelle version : un vrai esprit cpc!!! c'est parfait

sinon j'ai un souci : quand je tape "b" pour regler les "bips"

je met "y" pour save and exit, et la a chaque fois j'ai une erreur "error reading config file"...

sinon je compte tester avec une ramcard ( il vaut mieux choisir quoi comme materiel, je n'y connais rien...)

allez je fais un effor , vu que le post est en anglais...

i love colors of the new version : a real "cpc spirit"!!! it's perfect!!

but i have a problem : when i type "b" for buzzer settings, i always have a read config file error when saving...

i would like to test with a ramcard : wich material should i choose?

Read error when saving? Weird (there is no read operations while quitting & saving).
Does this ALWAYS apply ONLY when you change buzzer settings ?
Does this problem also occurs when you assign files to slots ?
Please can you double-check your config? I can't reproduce the issue.
Forget the Ramcard, it's just a plus to get one but it does not change anything to the program.

For a work-around, since usually you change buzzer settings only one time in HxC' life...
I encourage you to edit your HXCSDFE.CFG file using the PC program.

Till you can set HFE disc images to slots, that's really what matters.

the error only happens with "b" settings : when i put "y" to save it says:

errorcode
hxgerror_readconfigfileerror

there is no other problems!! with slot attribution ec... it's ok!!! and i'm ok it's only what matters!!

my firmware is 1.7.2.7

thanks

sorry, but i still have a problem with the new version...

all was all right, but when i creat directory on the card ( for example : a directory named "a" with games beggining by a)

i chose slots, and exit, i put "y" for saving and i have still

errorcode
xxgerror_readconfigfileerror

and one time before , i had the same error when chosing slots and without creating directory...

i think there is really a problem somewhere...

i'm asking : maybe i have too much hfe files on my card?
maybe is a card problem?? but before i had no problems...

Hi,

I will try to reproduce the bug and fix it.

Please give me some time, since I'm not 100% focused on CPC developments those days.
