Here it is
Ok, maybe not the best choice, but it should work (when not doing |m4romoff).
However I am not sure the modified lowerrom is actually in the slot, so you probably should try to upload it again and better use ie. slot 31.
I have attached a modified lowerrom here that sets mode 2, you can use this to test so you are sure it uses the modified lowerrom (as cpc will start in mode 2 rather than mode1).

Here it is


You put the M4 ROM and the LowerROM to slot 6, two ROMs can't occupy the same slot. Please move the lower ROM to slot 31.

Here it is
You have to install the modified firmware at slot 31 (Can be other slot but stick to 31 for best...)

Erase it from slot 6 (This must be free for the M4rom to be visible)

Let the "rom number" option above at 6. This is where M4rom will be visible.

Then change the lowerrom option from 6 to 31

The problem is you have m4 rom and lowerrom both at 6 and they collide

So you change them to display same of Duke's image and later it comes back to the bad settings?

You can delete the M4 folder from microSD and start from zero

@VincentGR

Please try to upgrade firmware to v2.05b3 and if you still have problems, check your edge connector.
Your picture shows you have (had) it working, but something was off.

Yesterday I ran |UPRGRADE and reported that I had the final version.
I will search for your version as it is newer.


Thank you all.

I used my M4 on my CPC 6128+, working perfectly. (the best extension card ever!)
but recently, I bought a CPC6128 (old) and have connected my M4 in.I have to reboot the M4 card at least 8 times to get the recognised on this CPC. (pressing the M4 RESET switch)
why it work straight on the CPC+ and very hard to get in on the CPC- ?


FW 2.04 is installed.

If you use rom slot 7 for M4, maybe your new old 6128 is the one that you cannot setup external rom slot 7 because collision with internal amsdos?

Then you need low-firmware mod and use rom slot 6 for M4 rom

Is there any way I can get both M4 hardware and a CPC so I can complete PLATOTerm development?

Just to note, when I first got the CPC Wifi, I intended to use it on a 6128 which had a knackered disc drive on, but, when I plugged it in, it was very unstable, I cleaned everything and it made no difference. But on my good machine, which I've now sold, when you plugged it in, it worked straight off the bat, perfectly fine, not one hiccup.


Obviously something is wrong with my old one in regards to the edge connector, it looks okay, but, its not, and I've never investigated it it further... So if you are having issues, just note it could be your hardware thats the problem.

Sure, pickup a cheap CPC from ebay and pm me for an M4 board. You'll probably not regret it, it's a great machine ;)

Hi!
I'm a new Amstrad user (usually I used MSX computers ^^)
I buyed this awesome board (thanks Duke,for your great work!)
Now I'm trying to find a 3D design for a case (v2.5) but I don´t know where to find it. In this thread I found a design,but is not for my board version :(
Someone knows where to find a 3D design for the version 2.5?
Thanks!

What's the best system to use with the M4? 464? 664? 6128?

Afaik. there is no 3D case for v2.4 and v2.5 (same dimensions) with edge connector freely available. Someone is selling them on ebay though.

Either is fine. I'd go for a 6128 because of the extra ram and sleeker design. However you may be able to pickup a 464 much cheaper and it'll do the job just fine.

Hello @Duke


Is there any M4 WIFI available?


Also,  do you have any RAM for it with the proper adapter?


Thanks.

Yes PM or email me if you need another one.
It's the usual lead time of 4-5 weeks from ordering.

I don't do any RAM expansions, try to send Tot0 a PM, I think he still make XMEM, he also makes the MotherX4 so you can connect multiple expansions.

Since the M4 already simulates 512 KB ROM you actually can go with the 4 MB expansion from Piotr. I use a M4 and 4 MB RAM on an AMSDAP and it works well (CPC6128).  :)

If I'm not wrong, that command just disables the M4 rom, not all the roms
