No I only have the disc-mag[nb]You don't seriously want a .txt. First you have to transfer it to disc, then to CPC, then start CP/M, then a text editor, then load the file, and search through it. Can't be worse[/nb]. Easy does it:
 
- Insert DSK in any drive (use an emulator if your real hardware is not accessible)
- Start the very first file with the name " Start FV 3"
 
That's all :)

Very funny. Actually a simple "vi textfile.txt" in the CLI does it for me.

Neither I know what that is, nor I do think that I have it on my (C)PC.[nb]And a comment on a footnote should be a footnote  ;) [/nb]

Does anyone have the original hardware or the schematics so that it could be reverse engineered for a 2013 version?

Bryce.

CPCManiaco has the hardware. As soon as I can visit him I can try to scan,dump,etc everything you need. You just name it ;)

Well, Good news!


The scans of the PCB were already in the Dobbertin HD page in the wiki, and also the XD-Dos 2.0 rom was also in its page.


Now, we managed to dump the two gals, and they are uploaded to the wiki page!


If there's anything else you may need, tell us  ;)


Have a nice day!

Sure it's a bit off topic, but if you can dump the 6128 PAL (16L8AC) too...
That will allow to build RAM expansion for 464/664.
