Hello TFM.

I'd like to give FutureOS a try on my M4 Board and i'd like to know a few things :

I installed FOS using the roms and the web interface, it runs without problems, but i'd like to now how do you store settings in the case of M4 Board.
Cause i tried to go in Spartan mode, using the configurator on the FOS installation disc, but it didn't work.

I'm wondering what is the current level of support of the M4 Board at this point. I didn't succeed in browsing the SD card using all the discs icons.

Thanks for your answers. I prefer to ask before trying to find a solution that doesn't exist yet (i'm totally confident that if the support is not yet optimal, you will work on it in the future !).

Thank's a lot! English, Spanish and German seem to work. In the French version there is indeed a bug, I just have to find it.


Ok, I did reassemble the French Version for Plus and with MacDeath Icon set, the ROMs run on WinApe, modified them for ROM numbers &8E to &91. Hope this will work now.  :)

Miracle no errors!!!!.   :D

Anything make these cartridges reveals. Is needed new app to make cartridges. grimware limitation to 20 is so ... :-X

I mean app in windows.

I have adapted cpm Plus rom with  the extensión rom.


It appear incompatible with the Plus range. Because he calls directly to the firmware and the directions have changed. After that i patch the extensión rom so now they scan It in all slots.


But as i can't use grimware Page from now all parches in new ROMs have to be patch It  manually with a hex editor.


Is to much work for me made 20  cartridges in even update.


So is better tfm made the rest of cartridges in french, and then i can simply upload the patchs with a little explanation how add It in the existing carts.  Simply copy and paste with hex editor.


 :) .


PD: i found a bug in the forum, i quote you, but It appear in White.

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.  :)
