C4CPC FW update
« on: 18:41, 09 September 15 »
To all C4CPC users,

Thanks to the increasing number of  converted games  :) , an issue was found when folder contains more than 247 files.
A new version of C4CPC firmware that fix this issue is available on the C4CPC wiki page, Firmware update section as well as the upgrade procedure.

[EDIT 12/09/2015] V1.00.03 : Fix bad behaviour in file read that may read more sector than available in a cluster

The update package (C4CPC_V1.00.03.zip) contains all you need to do the update :
- dfu-programmer : executable and driver for windows, source and script for OSX, Linux user should get it from they distribution repository
- script for performing the upgrade

Let me know if there is any issue

[EDIT 21/05/2016] V1.00.04 : Added compatibility with Symbiface II, CprSelect can now display txt files
Update contains new card firmware as well as CprSelect_v102.cpr

[EDIT 06/08/2016] V1.00.05 : Fixed cluster truncation error leading to crash when loaded files where on cluster number greater that 65536

[EDIT 20/07/2017] V1.00.06 : Fixed issue that loaded more sectors than remaining in current cluster

Well CPC ROMs had the same issue, so I guess that makes it a true piece of CPC hardware :)

Ok, seems it's Jacques Toubon, like we say in French.

New version available, 1st post updated.
While the previous issue could be avoided by having folder with a limited number of files, the new issue found may pop each time you modify the SD card.
Upgrade is stongly recommended  ;)
