Nice, never tried to see if you can upload roms direct from the card, always used the web interface.


Here is an example:


Code: [Select]
10 |NETSET,"NAME=CPC6128, SSID=YOURSSID, PW=YOURPASS, DHCP=0, IP=IPOFYOURCPC, GW=YOURROUTERIP, NM=255.255.255.0 DNS=YOUROUTERORDNS, DNS2=THESAME"


SAVE "AUTOEXEC.BAS"

Well, I can confirm that ROM upload works since the FutureOS Installer works from disc and SD-card.  :)

I also used the |FCP command with * for complete disk copy and file by file.
Most of the times the disk I make is empty although KB are reduced and cat gives me nothing.
With |ls I can see the files on the disk (3" drive and 3.5) but when I try to run something it says file not found.


Any ideas?

Please do not save netsetup as AUTOEXEC.BAS - Once you run |NETSET, the configuration is saved to the microSD and automatically re-loaded on next powercycle. ;)
Sorry for OFFTOPIC!

BTW: The ROM-name contains two &0A bytes, this confuses some ROM managing software. Would be great it this great ROM could be made compatible (by removing the two control codes).  :)

Could you please test this ROM I'm attaching here and tell me if it solves the compatibility issues?

Abalore, it would be very difficult for the program to transfer from 3" to DSK?

I can't say right now, it's something that needs to be investigated, but for sure it won't be easy.

You just need to enable M4 rom.


This is how it works for me:

Guys, I've got another problem. Once I'm powering down, my M4 board doesn't remember my wifi settings? What am I doing wrong?

It's also comes up with an error when I used the |M4FE command unless I set up the wifi each time.


I can only assume that one of the rims that I’m using is wrong. Where are you guys grabbing the M4 rom?

The WiFi settings are stored on the SD card. If you don’t have one installed or it’s switched to read only it won’t be able to save the settings.

I think that my M4 board has a loose connection on the SD card slot. I've just played about with it and it seems to be working again. Very odd.


One thing I have noticed is that next to the dir.txt file it says ERR.
