Hi Xav,

The image works fine when I write it to an SD card with DD. I can mount it as a virtual drive in linux, and WinImage thinks it's ok so maybe you should mail the authors of DskCenter to have a look and see if they can fix their problem. Is it open source?

I don't really see why this is relevant? :?

You'll have to help me out a little. What compiler are you using? What error is being generated? I provided c++ example code but isn't VB81 written in VB? You'll need to do some porting work I guess... ;¬D

I have downloaded this version to alter all older 1K hiresgames into ZXPAND-joystick support, but besides the ZXPAND 1.25 message I can't load the files.
What next? I have BIN with all games on it.

This may be the version with support for files in a sub-folder rather than a disk image - much more convenient I hope you'll agree - but I can't remember. My old man brain is weakening day-by-day it seems :D

I'll check and let you know.

Sorry for reawakening an old post, but my question is relevant.
I can't find any info on how to use sub-folders, was it ever possible? It'd be really useful to me. Now that I have the real zxpand, I have some code to test/debug on the emu before deploying on the real thing...

The last version I posted used folders, I think. If I'm wrong then I may be able to get hold of a version that does. It's less accurate, but more convenient.

EOs that use a file as virtual storage use the same filing system code (fatFS) as the hardware does. The version which uses a folder has a pretty basic simulation of the file system code which does not behave the same as FATfs in a number of ways - but it's close enough.

There is a folder (CARD? SDCARD? I'll check) where you put your files. Simple as that.

*edit - checked! It's MMC_CARD

Hi.
Maybe my question is "OT"... but, can you tell me if EightyOne has a command line options?

Thanks, Mic.
