Re: [hatari-devel] Ishar 1 and 2 falcon

[ Thread Index | Date Index | More Archives ]

I'm doing some more tests:
I've created to 1.44Mo floppy disks with hatari and I'm curently copying the files of Ishar 1 on the 2 floppy.

Something strange :

When I enable floppy drive 1 and I insert the 1st floppy into and I enable the 2nd floppy drive and select the 2nd floppy into the drive B, I would have expected to have 2 floppy drives (A and B) actives with a floppy in the drive A and another floppy in the drive B.

But when I double click on the desktop icon of the drive B, the emulated falcon ask me to instert the floppy B into the drive A ...

Is it normal ?

I've given a closer look at ishar 1 and ishar 2 on Falcon.
They are both "installed" on my hatari falcon hard  drive in a directory
Ishar_1 and Ishar_2.

When I launch them, the program loop forever in these lines :
The Trap BIOS 7 is : get floppy disk boot sector. This means that a
floppy disk has to be present in the floppy disk drive.

So, the problem with Ishar 1 and Ishar 2 is absolutely not a problem of
Videl or cycles or whatever but just that the games should be on floppy
disks and not on the hard drive.
(From what I understand of the problem).
Can someone confirm ?

There are few programs with which it's enough to have some
disk in floppy drive, but otherwise they work fine from
hard disk.

Do your Ishar 1 & 2 work from HD with Mercurial tip version
of Hatari if you have (e.g. empty) floppy in?

And do they freeze with Hatari 2.0 & earlier even in that case
(i.e. did they also have the Videl address counter issue, so
that I can properly update docs)?
