Steps for noobs:



With YANCC, after copying the yancc.dsk to the CPC
dskx, "yancc.dsk", "/yancc"

After this then
| cd, "yancc"Then RUN "config.bas"

Afterwards when the updated YANCC-CP.ROM file made use

| romup, "yancccc-cp.rom", 3 (or whatever ROM slot)
| romup,"launch.rom", 10 (or whatever ROM slot)

To upload to ROM slots in the M4 board

Hello,


I installed YANCC (latest version) on a CPC6128 with M4 Board. I have a strange message (Unknown directory) at the second window, after I switch from m4 to floppy. Same message appears at the bottom of second window when I copy a file from sd to floppy.


ROM Configuration : M4 6, AMSDOS 8, YANCC 9, LAUNCHER 10, Modified Lower ROM 31


Is this normal behavior?


Thanks,


Takis

no ;-)
Why you put AMSDOS on 8? You have also an active AMSDOS on 7 => 2 active AMSDOS's
Please place YANCC below the M4/AMSDOS-ROM (e.g. in slot 5 or 4 or 3,2,1) and test it again

Hi SOS,

Putting AMSDOS at slot 8 was a suggestion from Duke in order to have access to both SD and Floppy Disk (without disabling m4 ROM).


With AMSDOS in slot 8 : Idisc changes to floppy, Isd changes back to M4 SD
Without AMSDOS in slot 8 : Idisc does not change to floppy


I tried your suggestion:


With AMSDOS removed from slot 8 and YANCC in slot 3, the results were worse (see screenshot). Only m4 detected but no files shown!


With AMSDOS in slot 8 and YANCC in slot 3, same behavior as before (Unknown directory)


Pretty puzzling...

Sorry for the late answer, today i check this on my Amstrad.
We must divide two things:
* "Unknown Directory": YANCC-Bug, but need Time to fix
   (it's a "new" bug,  older version should not have it, maybe use an older YANCC-Version)
* Normal Amstrad has AMSDOS in Slot 7, when you place M4DOS in 6, you must have an functional AMSDOS in 7 (Floppies are Present)
   When you set M4DOS in 7, you must set AMSDOS in a slot 8,9,10,.... - when you dont do that, you get YANCC with the last Screenshot "ROM0" in the middle.

I've had problems with the above empty (frozen) screen also


CPC6128, Drive A 3" internal, Drive B Gotek


Slots:
1. YANCC
2. Utopia
7. AMSDOS (yes its default ROM 7. If I remove this no difference)
8. Launcher


The above shows
Drives found A, C, D
ROM :7
All drives work
Unknown directory


However if we enable Lower-rom slot 31 = 6128 Lower OS Mod then it freezes with


Drives Found A,C
ROM:0


So seems to be an issue with the M4 + lower ROM OS mod + YANCC (141119b)


*Edit - Using FW316 seems to work fine
CPC6128, 2xCPC464, C64, A500

Careful with Utopia, try to remove it and let us know if this solves the problem.
