HxC with 8GB SD card
« on: 13:33, 20 December 10 »
I put all my games on this a 8GB SD card in directories called A - Z. If I go in one of this directory and made serveral scrolls, after the 6 or 7th scroll the filename were shown only in slow-motion.
 
Any hints? :(

This is a "bug". i have already corrected this on the amiga version.
In fact the FAT cache setting is too low. Easy to correct this on Amiga, less on CPC (memory size problem).

For the moment i am a little busy so please be patient for the new version. (NoRecess maybe?)

What is the approximate maximum number of files/folder before the scrolling starts to go nuts? I have the same setup (8 gb + a-z folders), so I was wondering how to circumvent this problem?

So... is it better to NOT use subfolders?
 
Is it more efficient to put all disc-images in the main directory?

Sorry Jeff_HxC2001, but I was just asking if there is any way to make a usable sd-card in the mean time?  It takes ages to copy the files to the sd-card even in Winblows, so it would be very useful to know what is the approximate theoretical limit for the number of files or folders for the current version of the software?

I really don't mean to put the pressure on you, I just thought that maybe you could share this info for the mean time.

The software makes using the floppy emulator soo much easier. Thank you for making this possible : :D

Yeah, I did minor improvements last week on file selector. Next version will also allow the user to edit HxC's sound parameters (on-off for disc access or UI stuff).
The next release will include this as also the changes to be done this week by Jeff.

Don't want to be a pita, but what's the status of the new file selector for Amstrad? I saw Jeff posted new versions for Amiga/ST, but the CPC-version was the "old" one.

Hey, take your time. We all have a real life. And better you take more time, than to do it too quick (with maybe a bug). Thank's a lot for the wonderful HxC and it's software. :)

Actually more than 916..., 1000 very soon....
The average sale per month is 100 (120...80)
This device is used in very differents enviroments : retro computing (cpc,atari, amiga,...), music : synth and samplers , industrial : cnc and scientist machine.

And all of this in less than a year... i am surprised (and Lotharek too) by this success.
In fact we have to make urgently two small society last summer to avoid lot of legal issues regarding this success.

So my hardware/software devellopment around this isn't over, and some new hardware will be probably be released this year  ;)
