How can be loaded a .DSK file when I have to type ùCPM ?
perhaps to use a pre configured short cut key on your sw?
At the Moment i have no Access to the M4-Board.
Is it actual possible (without my software) that you |CD into the DSK and then |CPM starts the (CPM-)Program in the DSK-Image?!
If yes, i will set a shortcut-key to my todolist.

With M4 Board:
- One FDD as drive A. I can read it, but the CPC reboot when I try to copy files from<=> to M4-FDD
- Two FDDs. I can readn only A, but copy from<=>to M4-FDD also don't work

Please test the new version.

I check the M4, it doesn't Support |CPM from a DSK-File (it loads from the floppy).
When M4 Support |CPM from a DSK, i will add them.

New Version, changelog:
130318b
- Fixed Unwanted starts of YANCC during Warm-Reset (e. g. „Monty on the Run“)
- In rare circumstances, some files are copied empty.
- In rare circumstances, the ROM-Init of YANCC makes nonsense...  (e.g. in "12 Lost Souls")
- CubeIOS bugfix

Great work, SOS!!

Especially the launcher works fine for me and is VERY comfortable. Congratulations.

My problem is with Yancc (last version 130318b).

I use M4 Board in a 6128, with the lower rom modified by Duke for more compatibility with games, in slot 31. Yancc rom is in slot 1 and launcher in slot 15 (Amdos in slot 8 and Parados in 7, M4 in 6).

When I type 3 or 4 (C or D, I have 2 FDD), I can't see the inside of the disks, but a folder called M4. To see the software in the disks, I have to delete the lower rom and let empty the slot 31. Then your software works fine and I can copy files between drives. But a lot of games are not compatible with this configuration of roms, sadly.

Is there any configuration to work with disks in Yancc and having the modified rom of Duke as lower rom?

Thank you!!

I will test this (will take a few days).
When i can reproduce that, i bet i can patch this.
(if i have problems with replication, i will send you a PM for assistance)

@SOS

I think the problem is that the lower rom modified by Duke disables all drives except the sd, precisely in order to improve compatibility for games whome call the floppy. So, this is the unfortunated dilemma: more compatibility for games or visibility to manage files.

You can install AMSDOS e.g. in ROM 8, so you have still Floppy-Access.

It was a medium-good idea to hardcode AMSDOS to ROM 7 in YANCC   :picard: -> in the RC of the next version i've changed that (works in your configuration), but i will test a similar configuration with CubeIOS, if the floppies are still accessable.
(i think approx 2-3 Week?!)

I have indeed AMSDOS in slot 8, but it looks like YANCC doesn't know it.

Thanks for the support and, again, congratulations for the wonderful software.

It works perfectly!!! Thanks. Now I can use the drives to copy files between them.
Sorry for the delay, but I was the las two months only with 464 an now I have my 6128 again.
Just a detail. In the changelog txt you say "Floppies not detected, when AMSDOS <> ROM 7". In muy case, it works with AMSDOS in ROM 8, not 7.
Thanks again!!!  ;D

This is what i changed: "Floppies not detected, when AMSDOS <> ROM 7"

AMSDOS in ROM 8 is a very good choice...

YARFYANCC (Yet Another Request For Yet Another Norton-Commander Clone)
Not to have to burn LAUNCH.ROM when you don't use the functionality.Anyway it's always nice to check the presence of additional ROM you rely on, so it's wouldn't add much work.BTW, why does the ROM have to be in a higher slot?

I'm also copying here the requests from CubeMDOS thread, for clarity.

5/ YANCC should have a 'Move' command
5a/ At least YANCC should retain the selection (like PARADOS copier).
42/ Fix copy of 32k+ Ascii files (Orgams sources!)
43/ Release the source code (:

Thank you for your great work.

;D ;D ;D ;D

The YANCC-ROM is full, so i Need an second ROM. In the second ROM are enough free Bytes, so the combination "Needed-YANCC-Functions-to-run" & "Launcher" (which Needs functions from YANCC) makes sense...

YANCC Need to have an lower ROM, because of detection the Floppy-&Massstorage-Device-ROM's.

Move: I'm thinking about it, but it's OS-dependant. (so then only for CubeMDOS)
It could be problematic, due to the full Cube-ROM. => Maybe (or not) later in this year (Summer? Winter?)

YANCC was not started as an open-source project
=> Not planned at the moment, maybe (maybe not) later in this year.


=> Other Points: I will check YANCC later in this year (no time).
