Hi @GUNHED !!!,  just below someone has put a page with an article that I wrote in Spanish, but if you look at the post that I put first, I put the download link:
Quote
download from CPC : |httpget,"cpcrulez.fr/m4/m4beta.bin"
@Skunkfish , about " .. is it possible to change the download folder " , yes : simply by selecting the folder with the file explorer. Once in the folder you have to start a download with the ESC key.

Thank you! This is all 'new' for me, do we have some ressources how to:
- Download something from the net
- Upload something in the net


It would be great to have some common 'source'. That way we all can use such great features for our games and applications.  :)

Hi guys,


I have been a little bit disconnected from the latest developments made for the M4 board firmware. I am trying to dowload the latest stable  v 2.0.5 or any newest beta which runs well (I currently have the 2.05B11 version installed) but I can not find any link to it neither in the cpc wiki website nor in the spinpoint website. Can you share a download link with me?


With my current version, the webmanager file brower has "stacked" in one particular folder and I can´t transfer files from my PC to the CPC. Besides, the |httpget command to download the cpcrulez front-end does not work (Error message: non supported). I guess everything will be solved with the latest version.


Thanks a lot in advance

Right here:
https://github.com/M4Duke/M4examples/blob/master/httpget.s

Though I think @hERMOL uses the RSX command from the M4 rom, in his cool program.

Thank you! Browsing through 105 pages is a little bit exhausting. I knew that there is a 2.0.6 beta but I guess that this version is directly provided by you. Am I right?


Best regards

M4 Board firmware v2.0.6 released.
Download here: http://www.spinpoint.org/cpc/M4FIRM_v206.zip and unpack to root of microSD, then power cycle the CPC with microSD inserted.
If you have not used any v2.0.6 beta, you can use |upgrade instead.

Changes since v2.0.5:
  • Fix bug in |FCP corrupting (amsdos) files when transfering from microSD to DISC. (Thanks @Kukulcan)
  • Fix |ROMUP issue (multiple rom upload)
  • Fix for NMI/HACKMENU (internal)
  • Fix maybe other smaller issues I have forgotten about.

Thanks for the update. However, the issue with the 6128plus is still there.

Users of the 6128plus please apply in addition the M4FIRM_v206b2 upgrade (see post before).

I've to transfer many of my old 80 track 3.5" disks to sd-card but on nearly all of them, I've "hidden" the additional files, marking them as system files.
When I transfer my disk to sd using |fcp,"B:*","C:", these "hidden" files are not transferred at all.


Is it possible to get a |fcp-command which will also transfer these files?

That would be surely nice. Maybe as option? But a way should be there.  :)


Meanwhile hidden file can be transformed into normal files in (at least) two ways:
- Use X-DDOS: Use the command !ATTRIBUT,"*.*","D"
- FutureOS: Tag all files, goto REName, press Return for every file

Hi @Duke, I think it would be a good idea to include a modification in the firmware of the M4 that would allow to save configuration profiles, in order to be able to save different combinations of ROMS in a convenient way for its handling.

It uses AMSDOS cas_catalog to list the files for copying. If I am not mistaken there is some poke to list hidden files? (or perhaps only deleted files?).

Hi @Duke, I think it would be a good idea to include a modification in the firmware of the M4 that would allow to save configuration profiles, in order to be able to save different combinations of ROMS in a convenient way for its handling.

Some years ago I made small program to use other ROM configurations, it is here:

Source : https://github.com/M4Duke/M4examples/commit/3be24cb048962ca36bfd1f04c17296a3a1b77fba
Binary: https://github.com/M4Duke/M4examples/commit/09cf2c95c6e00218fce00c2bc2f68608e2e45d00

Say you wanted different rom sets for easy exchanging, you could script it in a basic file, like this:

10 |copyf, "/romsets/romslots1.bin", "/m4/romslots.bin"
20 |copyf, "/romsets/romconfig1.bin", "/m4/romconfig.bin"
30 run"m4reconf.bin"

save"dev-roms.bas"

Or are you thinking about something else?

Hi.
I have a couple of minor issues with the M4. :-[
I have a 464. I've uploaded OS 1.1 and BASIC 1.1 to slots 31 and 0 respectively and activated Lowerrom.
464 now thinks it's 6128 ( without Amsdos) :D
M4 in slot 7, Maxam in 8 and Utopia in 9 but Utopia not being initialised. :-[
The other issue is that the M4 web interface is not showing the installed ROMS. ( This is very minor and I can live without it).


Otherwise, the M4 is great. :D :D


Update: Utopia works fine in slot 6. :D , don't know why it didn't like slot 9.

You have to give them a name description at the web interface before uploading.
