A screenshot for a black screen? :D

Probably something with your ROMs. Try choosing one of the setups in the menu...

Hmmm..weird.

It's been like this for a few days, but somehow has now reset itself to the basic screen after I tried loading a game. I did try this before and it didn't work.

All fixed for now.

Has happened to me, just removing the ini file seemed to fix it...

Yes, or the Cartridge. Click at Cartridge Symbol, then select the Plus one, not a game.

Okay, I'll remember that next time. Thanks.

You should be able to simply select one of the default profiles (at the top of the settings tab), then you may need to disable or remove certain ROMs.

In my .ini it's like that.

Code: [Select]
[ROMS]
Cartridge=CPC_PLUS.CPR
Lower=
Upper(0)=
Upper(1)=
Upper(2)=
Upper(3)=
Upper(4)=
Upper(5)=
Upper(6)=
Upper(7)=
Upper(=
Upper(9)=
Upper(10)=
Upper(11)=
Upper(12)=
Upper(13)=
Upper(14)=
Upper(15)=
Multiface=
Cartridge Enabled=true
Multiface Enabled=true
Disable All=false
Enable L07=false

And it's works perfectly.

Hi! Got (maybe) a WinApe problem here, don't want to start a new thread though...

If I read port &FD0F of the SF2 then its value contains the IDE status.
If I read it with WinApe it always tells me 255, so it doesn't actually tell the IDE status.

Do I do something wrong, or does WinApe not support that feature?

#FD0F is the IDE status (IN)/command(OUT) register: Without it nothing would be possible regarding IDE. So of course WinApe (at least the current Alpha 18) supports it.
Did you deactivate IDE support in WinApe?

No, but ... crazy thing! Suddenly it works. I don't know what was the problem before.
Thank's for your help!  :)

EDIT: Ah, I'm getting there. Of port &FD0F (status when read) the bit 7 is BUSY: Hard-disc is free when the bit is cleared.
But there is bit 6 too, its READY, it must be SET to indicate the hard-disc working. That's somehow missing I guess.

EDIT2: Checked the X-MASS yesterday, the port &FD0F reports &50 while Winape reports &00. So yes, bit 6 (the 7th bit) need to be set (means drive is READY).

I forgot the meaning of bit 4 though, which is set too.

Maybe this can be taken into the next WinApe release @Executioner ? Would be great!  :)

It's never supposed to read as #00, that's a bug in the initialisation code (first read is #50, then #00 after).
