The new version is still generating a disk type that is Atari ST. I am working on a change to the SCP software where you can override the disk type because right now, anything that HxC creates for 5.25" format is unusable.

Why this "type" information is important for the SCP software ?
Should i turn it to "unknown" ?

The type is used by SuperCard Pro's disk copier to autofill the parameters for writing disks.

You should be setting the type to the various types defined by the SCP specification. There are types defined for numerous formats - IBM360, TRS-80, TI-99/4A, Atari 8 bit, Atari ST, Amiga, Commodore 8 bit, etc. etc.
