Non standard size adf files

Post by nikmind »

I've come across adf files that has non standard size. My guess is that the size reflects the size of the data on the disk. These does not seem to work on my HxC floppy (Gotek).

Example file : https://resistance.no/releases/amiga/rse-melodees1.zip

Works fine when trying it in WinUAE. Are these disks something that could be supported?

Right now you can convert/fix them with the hxc software.
I will see how i can support them without broke something else in the firmware (i am thinking about the Acorn ADF files...)

This is a bad adf file.
Only the first 57 tracks are in it.
If you complete the file to 880kb, the demo will start.
