I downladed it in my c4cpc i think is in last firmware cpr 1.02. The cartridge loads no problem, so we have a mistery here.

mmm

You have another microsd to test maybe?.

Hxc loader is in cartridges,  to  opc artstudio you need the duke m4 for example.

What is the FW version of your card ? You can have get it by booting without sd card or on an empty slot.
I confirm that its hangs on the latest version of the firmware (1.0.6)

There is a 1.06? I in 1.05 I can view it with the cart when c4cpc shows loading... with my carts.

1_00_05 exactly.

Yes, there is a 1_00_06. It's identical to 1_00_05 except a tiny change for M4 compatibility that Duke fixed. So no reason to push an update.
I've just tested 1_00_03 to 1_00_6 and all crashed at some point.
I suspect an issue on the filesystem handling.
Some work for the week end ;)

Well at least is not my fault. :laugh:

But is curius, it never happend to me lol.

I have edited the wiki, so nobody have to  be lost asking about my cartridges.

In theory is possible change the roms, but to that is necesary delete something.

Thanks.
Will be purchasing a GX4000 homebrew cart in the near future and will see what can be done with this interesting piece of kit.

My 6128 Plus has a Rombox attached with ParaDos, Protext, Discology, D.E.S., Utopia and DosCopy installed. A 2nd 6128 Plus (backup machine) has ParaDos on cartridge. My question is this - can anyone install those 6 programs on a cartridge? And if so - how much will this cost?
If you want all of those on a cartridge then generally you need a patched os rom in the cart which will access &80-&ff rather than 0-16.
I started to make a program to do exactly as you want but I haven't finished it yet.

The problem I had was finding a place to insert the extra bytes, the OS doesn't have many bytes free :(
