New version :

https://github.com/jfdelnero/HXCFE_file ... ctor_V1_89

https://github.com/jfdelnero/HXCFE_file ... anager.zip
HxC Floppy Emulator file selector Version 1.89

Amiga -> Better multitasking/Workbench compatibility/support :

-> Don't "overtake"/hand-initialize the screen anymore : Let the system initialize the bitplane and just use it.
-> Don't reboot anymore the system but just exit the file selector if we are not track-loaded.
-> Don't lockup the system anymore in case of error if we are not track-loaded.

With these modifications the file selector is now more "Workbench-friendly".

Amiga Workbench tips and tricks :
Press Left-Amiga+N keys to switch to the Workbench.
Press Left-Amiga+M keys to switch back to the HxC File selector.
You can drag/scroll the HxC File selector screen with the upper bar.
