Terrific Demo
« on: 10:15, 10 October 18 »
Hi guys!I"d like to transfer the two DSK/HFE files to a real floppy disc.This demo looks to have a very shitty format.The makers make their own soft to copy this demo. I tried to use it but doesn't works.
I tried also to copy the disc with standard DISCOLOGY v6 setting and I cannot get the demo running out of a black screen during the boot up.I just used 42 tracks with discology and I can run the atari St part then black screen just after the C/G menu.
Anyone here got an idea how to copy this demo?

well.. this is not really fixed..
my copy works only ONE TIME!Then after few hours out of my CPC, I came back in and re load this demo.I can have the ATARI ST part, I can select the monitor type (C/G) then I'm getting error messages and black screen on FACE B.
Wow... very complicate to copy this demo.
if someone here can try to convert these DSK files to a real floppy disk ?

I'm all done with this demo.
In fact, I did a check with DSKTest_v0.1.47b and saw that my drive speed was a 290 TRS/MN. I fixed it to 300 TRS/MN.I also cleaned  the drive shaft with WD40.
I'm now able to launch this demo without errors.  ;D and at any reboots.  :laugh:
