Quote from: XeNoMoRPH on 12:07, 09 November 19I have installed only this two roms with my Simbiface 3 , because i´m using CubeMDOS.i2310.rom (rom 2) iMPdraw v2ext2310b.rom (rom 31) iMPdraw v2 Extended rom iMPdraw loads ok , but How can I access unit D which is my flash drive where I have images?
Quote from: Maniac on 15:33, 09 November 19I've managed to get the ROMs installed to my M4 with the iMPdraw ROM in slot 2 and the extension ROM in slot 3. It starts just fine but it's doing some odd things when I try and use it. For example when I press CLR to switch to the Plus palette my 6128+ resets and then changes the palette to a grey background with green/blue border and text. The keyboard input is then slow and although can go back in to iMPdraw it is not displaying correctly.I've uploaded the ROM images from the disk image both via the M4 web interface and directly via the RSX commands to make sure it's not something I'm doing but still no joy! In fact it won't even start after doing that!I should point out that I do also have an X-Mem memory module installed along with a Multiface 2 and Hackit plugged in. HxC Manager is in slot 5 and ParaDOS in slot 7 with the M4 ROM in slot 6.Removing the X-Mem and all other ROMs other than the M4 ROM results in a red screen instead which if left I've just noticed changes to green!Does anyone else have a similar setup and has it working please? I did have the extension ROM in slot 31 but it did the same thing except different colours!
Quote from: Ast on 20:51, 09 November 19Sorry for your bad experience. Please, Could anyone else confirm the same problem ? Do you try to install iMPdraw's rom onto your xmem, m4 off ?

Quote from: Ast on 20:58, 09 November 19i fixed some bugs on iMPdraw and iMPdos today. I will post the fixed version this week.
Quote from: Ast on 14:15, 12 November 19@Maniac : i confirm that iMPdraw v2 don't work with m4.But i don't know why.... I2 rom is installed on rom 2, ext in rom 4. When i do ùi, black screen...@Duke : any idea ?
QuoteI did some work in iMPdos and now, it is possible to copy files between xmass & m4. Really cool & fast.

Quote from: Ast on 09:52, 15 November 19@Duke : We need your help! I discovered that connecting/disconnecting the asic I/O page into a rom (i'm not speaking about a .cpr file) will crash the m4 rom.Is it possible to fix it ? Thanks for your fast answer.Code Select Expand...ld bc,#7fb8 ; asic i/o page onout (c),c..ld bc,#7fa0 ; asic i/o Page offout (c),c...About i2 progress, iMPdraw v2 is running on M4, cpc old only. We can load/save any file from m4 without any bugs.
Quote from: Ast on 12:29, 15 November 19I would be happy to see a new m4 rom with rmr2 fixed.
Quote from: Duke on 20:58, 15 November 19Attached is a temporary fix.It simply mask the upper 3 bits for RMR -check instead of 2 bits.This will avoid paging out upper rom when mapping the ASIC ram, but of course it will give problems to earlier demos/games that use GA "ghost" registers in regular CPC mode (if any...).Really I should watch for the ASIC unlock sequence, but clock cycle wise it is too expensive while I also monitor all other I/O regs for the hack menu.So I don't have a good permanent solution yet.. Probably in the end a CPR/BIN started with |CTR is best solution or a specific M4 command that enters CPC plus rom mapping mode without the use of |CTR.Anyway this should do for now, will keep thinking of a better solution.EDIT: think I found an efficient solution to implement asic unlock/lock sequence. Will try that out tomorrow.
Quote from: Ast on 13:22, 26 November 19iMPdraw v2 runs in full power now, using all Amstrad plus features... That's crazyyy !Do you really found a better solution ?
