CPR Builder Dragon Redux 2017
« on: 19:56, 10 August 17 »
Prologue: I got reminded about a nearly decade old webapp that builds a CPR file out of a bunch of ROM files. It appeared to be bugged (oops). To add insult to injury, it was written in PHP, thus required a remote online server to work at all. It sucked.

So here comes CPR Builder Dragon Redux quickly hacked in vanilla Javascript that (hopefully) works on any decent browser (even offline if you save the HTML file locally).

Nice. I've got a command line utility I think Kev wrote, but that's pretty cool as a more user friendly tool. I guess what we really need now is a hacked firmware ROM that will scan the cart range rather than the standard ROM slots.

I'm guilty   :D  the old page only made 20roms


I think arnoldemu is working in the 32 ROM detection.

What do you mean, with PHP you need a remote server? Doesn't everyone have a LAMP server on their home PC?


No?


Oh...


Well, great tool. I don't have a need for it, but good to have :)

I believe Grimware.org is still down?

Is this tool available elsewhere?
An expanding array of hardware available at www.cpcstore.co.uk (and issue 3 of CPC Fanzine!)

You may use Rasm to build a CPR :)
Code: [Select]
buildcpr
bank 0
incbin 'rom1.bin'
bank 1
incbin 'rom2.bin'
...
use RASM, the best assembler ever made :p

I will survive

I'll look for that later...

I am unsure how easy I'll find it.  I'd like a tool that takes the standard cartridge, I can specify the slots, add a ROM or three, click make or something.  Anything like that exist?  Windows would be fine even...
