Amstrad CPC multiple disk Merge (JavaCPC, PCXTI)
« on: 16:01, 27 January 20 »

Hi there. 40 year old gamer here. I've been setting up Amstrad CPC Emulation on my PC using Capice32, but am having trouble combining / merging multiple .dsk files for the same game. Like A320 (Europe) (Disk 1 of 2).dsk and A320 (Europe) (Disk 2 of 2).dsk

I found a really old thread on here from many years ago, but am having issues following it (http://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/applications/merge-two-dsk-files-into-double-sided-one/)

I've heard that Caprice32 has support for .m3u playlists, but I don't wont to go down this route just yet.

1) I've used JavaCPC, which will allow me to merge certain Amstrad .dsk files, but once combined, they will not open in Caprice32. Instead of it entering the "RUN"GAME NAME" to launch it, as it does with the single files, Caprice32 just auto enters "CAT". Is there a way to combine the files and have them launch as the individual files do?

2 ) I've found the Amstrad CPC Disk Image Utility "pcxti14" by Pierre Guerrier ( http://www.genesis8bit.fr/frontend/emu-uti.php ), but can't get things working. I can successfully run the Utility, through DOSBox, it shows what I need to type "XTI.exe -merge game-1.dsk game-2.dsk", but it will not merge the files. Am I doing this right?

Any help would be gratefully received.

Many thanks,

Ben
