Well, i think is finished. I fixed the cpm menu. And change it to "menu.

I add"o and "w to the other options of boot cp/m

The other parameters of the rom not appear very interesting, and i out of space in hxc rom :D .

So i upload the spanish cartridges. And the files and instructions to update de rest of cartridges. I think phantomz z don't should have problems to update it.
 
Thats all if some fail appears comment me some day.... :D

Just saw an update of the ROManager, it's 2.16 now. And it seems that the update is capable to install XROMs and while installing it updates the hard coded ROM select numbers of the expansion ROMs. I used it with an old SF2 and it works fine.  :)

Imagine, you're using the FutureOS Desktop and want to work with drives and files...

Out of curiosity: Would it be desirable to automatically read the Directory of a disc as soon as one clicks at a drive letter? Or would you prefer to mark all drives you want to use first and then click at the DIR icon to read all directories at ones?


Please let me know your preference.  :)

Ah, glad you have taken over from TFM and continue his OS. I do not use it, but I am very oldfashioned ... PARADOS is on the edge of to modern for me :)

One of the new functions is the Auto-DIR function. Now you can:


1. Click at an drive icon and the DIRectory will be loaded and displayed immediately. This way is will load the DIR's twice when tagging two drives for example.


2. Click at all the drives you want to work with, then click at the DIR icon (to load all directories). This is the way like it was before.


Which way to you prefer?

I have a little bit of time to look for Amstrad things, and so to look for FOS... What do you call XROMs ?

The XROM is an expansion ROM for FutureOS, which is recognized by FutureOS, but not by other OS. Also for the native firmware it looks like a sideway ROM (it's invisible). At the moment there are three XROMs:

1. Wallpaper ROM: Contains 3 Wallpapers
2. Tool-ROM: Contains a few applications
4. ROManager: As Gryzor suggested, it's good to have ROM management software in ROM already ;-)

To install the XROMs please use the ROManager, because it will automatically adapt the hard-coded ROM numbers.

There is also a manual and a source code available to create your own XROMs.  :)

Now it's time to order your personal versions again (just email me and tell me if you would like to have automatic-DIRectory-reading active or not).  :)


And thank you for your great feedback so far. Lot's of requests have been introduced now.  ;)

Dear current or future FutureOS users  :)


A month ago the last update was released. Now let me ask you:
- Any comments?
- Any bugs found?
- Anything else?
- Do you want the installer to support the M4 board? (Actually it's few commands to do this by hand).


Of course feel free to request you personalized FutureOS copy.  :)

I haven't had time to take a look at it, but would be nice to be able to run it from the M4 card.


What are the steps to install it?

Start FutureOS Installation Disc with: run"disc

Press 2 to select ROM Numbers, here enter the ROM numbers you want to use for the ROMs

Now use the RSX command |ROMUP from the M4 ROM to install the ROMs into the M4 card.

That's it.  :)


Alternatively: You can adapt the ROM numbers on a DSK using a CPC-Emulator, then use the M4 web interface to install the ROMs.  :)

Speaking of adapting the ROM numbers... How would I get this installed on WinAPE? I got the base ROMs installed OK, but couldn't figure out how to get the X-ROMs installed without changing the numbers (and that part I couldn't figure out how to do - I've never played with ROMs until recently!).


I managed to get ROManager running off the DSK, so I can see the ROMs that are installed, but it doesn't work to install them.
