Hatari enables two drives and fill the os values accordingly.
I understand that Hatari has to hack drvbits and trap #1 to enable the
C: GEMDOS drive emulation.
But does it also hook something about the floppy drives ? If not, Hatari
should not change the drvbits related to floppies.
From an FDC level, we really support 2 drives, so I don't think that's
a problem to force the values in the OS.
The OS may not want to use the 2 floppy drives. I have added an option
to EmuTOS to totally ignore the FDC. Hatari hacks drvbits so the A: and
B: icons appears on the desktop. Of course double-clicking them does
nothing because the FDC routines are not present.
Hatari should not hack the floppy drvbits if it does not also hook the
Though, we could have a switch to optionaly enable drive B: or not in
case the user really want to emulate only 1 drive.
In that case, EmuTOS will continue to cleanly autodetect the presence of
the second floppy drive on the FDC, and the B: icon will automatically
appear if it is present.
Please remove that drvbits hack if this is not strictly required by Hatari.
