Can't find disc on first run?

Post by Neil79 » Fri Jul 11, 2014 12:42 am

Ok I load up the HxC manager, select R-type disc A in slot 0 , disc B in slot 1 then quit and save.


Running the command Run"disc and it says it can't find disc, typing in cat and it shows a dot and a 0 file size, same with the second disc.


If I press the switch on the HxC device to go through both discs and HxC then back to slot 0, the game shows up fine >:(

( This seems to be a problem with the two disk games especially homebrew and demo scene only )

It's over 4GB :lol:

But here's two disks from the R-Type 128k version that doesn't work for me after first HxC Floppy Emulator Manager save.

http://homebrew.amstradtoday.com/games/r-type_b.dsk

I have to go through the drive slots again and come back to the disk in slot 0 to get it to show up.

Games like Dizzy for example work straight away and can be played straight after quitting from the manager

Please share your cfg file and autoboot.hfe file too.

have you tried the old autoboot.hfe (v2.5) ?

After selecting this

and using SDCard_HxC_Floppy_Emulator_Manager V2.5 ( NOT 3.0 )

So far it's working!

It actually looks better and is easier to read the files in the manager as well :)

Cheers Jeff
