I have installed only this two roms with my Simbiface 3 , because i´m using CubeMDOS.

i2310.rom (rom 2) iMPdraw v2
ext2310b.rom (rom 31) iMPdraw v2 Extended rom

iMPdraw loads ok , but How can I access unit D which is my flash drive where I have images?

I've managed to get the ROMs installed to my M4 with the iMPdraw ROM in slot 2 and the extension ROM in slot 3. It starts just fine but it's doing some odd things when I try and use it. For example when I press CLR to switch to the Plus palette my 6128+ resets and then changes the palette to a grey background with green/blue border and text. The keyboard input is then slow and although can go back in to iMPdraw it is not displaying correctly.

I've uploaded the ROM images from the disk image both via the M4 web interface and directly via the RSX commands to make sure it's not something I'm doing but still no joy! In fact it won't even start after doing that!

I should point out that I do also have an X-Mem memory module installed along with a Multiface 2 and Hackit plugged in. HxC Manager is in slot 5 and ParaDOS in slot 7 with the M4 ROM in slot 6.

Removing the X-Mem and all other ROMs other than the M4 ROM results in a red screen instead which if left I've just noticed changes to green!

Does anyone else have a similar setup and has it working please? I did have the extension ROM in slot 31 but it did the same thing except different colours!

I double checked that the ROM images themselves were ok in WinApe and all checked out. I’ll try and give upload to XMEM when I can get 5 mins. Thank you for all of the effort you’ve clearly put in to this.

I've had an opportunity to upload the ROMs to the XMem rather than the M4 and everything works as expected. So it would seem that the ROM images aren't compatible with the M4 at this moment in time. Just to be clear even with the XMem removed so that only the M4 and the original Plus cart installed I had the same issues. Can anyone else replicate this please or is it just something odd with my Plus or M4? All other ROMs work on the M4 without issue.

@Maniac : i confirm that iMPdraw v2 don't work with m4.


But i don't know why.... I2 rom is installed on rom 2, ext in rom 4. When i do ùi, black screen...


@Duke : any idea ?


I did some work in iMPdos and now, it is possible to copy files between xmass & m4. Really cool & fast.

Only a quick check, if I type
|M4ROMOFF
Then
|i
It seems to work, so indicating some conflict with M4 rom for file access or initialization of something?

Good news! I probably found the problem !!
When i connect/disconnect asic ram before running i2, it’s Crashing... but unfortunately i don’t know why... if someone has any idea... please, tell me!
I2 is running well when asic page is not connected on m4 support, so it’s running perfectly in old mode.(when i delete asic detection!)

Hi everyone,


I'm going on M4 support on iMPdraw v2.
After many and many checking, i found THE bug making i2 working wrong.


@Duke : We need your help! I discovered that connecting/disconnecting the asic I/O page into a rom (i'm not speaking about a .cpr file) will crash the m4 rom.
Is it possible to fix it ? Thanks for your fast answer.


Code: [Select]
...
ld bc,#7fb8 ; asic i/o page on
out (c),c
..
ld bc,#7fa0 ; asic i/o Page off
out (c),c
...


About i2 progress, iMPdraw v2 is running on M4, cpc old only. We can load/save any file from m4 without any bugs.
iMPdos has been fixed with added new features, as :


-ùM4 to access m4 card and add other importants informations for iMPdraw.
-ùCPSDX to copy files from sd to xmass
-ùCPXSD to copy files from xmass to sd


Today, i will work on m4 directory's access on iMPdraw. It will be funny when it would work.

Thanks. Good find. And yes in default 'mode' M4 will not check RMR2 as it would assume regular CPC operation.
If IMPdraw roms were put into a CPR image and started with |CTR, it may already work on CPC plus.
Anyway I will see what I can do soon.

Thanks for your reply @Duke


A cpr version will not be done yet. For the moment, all my strenghts are directed to a functional m4 version of  iMPdraw.


I would be happy to see a new m4 rom with rmr2 fixed.

Attached is a temporary fix.
It simply mask the upper 3 bits for RMR -check instead of 2 bits.
This will avoid paging out upper rom when mapping the ASIC ram, but of course it will give problems to earlier demos/games that use GA "ghost" registers in regular CPC mode (if any...).
Really I should watch for the ASIC unlock sequence, but clock cycle wise it is too expensive while I also monitor all other I/O regs for the hack menu.
So I don't have a good permanent solution yet.. Probably in the end a CPR/BIN started with |CTR is best solution or a specific M4 command that enters CPC plus rom mapping mode without the use of |CTR.

Anyway this should do for now, will keep thinking of a better solution.

EDIT: think I found an efficient solution to implement asic unlock/lock sequence. Will try that out tomorrow.
