The FDC delays are always wrong in Falcon mode, regardless to the CPU
type or speed.
If I detect the floppy drives with a Restore command using "Disable
spin-up sequence", it works fine in any case.
In my previous test (with enable spin-up sequence), it takes longer to
restore the first drive because the motor has to spin-up. Then it is
faster for the second drive (since both drives share the same motor flag
in Hatari ??). Since the timeout value is too tight in EmuTOS, that
spin-up time on Falcon is enough to cause failure on drive detection.
That being said:
1) I hope you agree Hatari has wrong FDC timings in Falcon mode.
2) I'm going to follow your advices and set the EmuTOS timeout value to
2.5 seconds (or 3 ?) instead of the current 1.5 seconds which may be too
tight in the real world for restore commands with spin-up.
3) I'm considering changing EmuTOS to detect floppy drives with a
Restore command with spin-up sequence disabled. Do you think this is a
sensible idea ?
