Quote from: Fredouille on 12:28, 24 December 16Hi @arnoldemu !! Any idea when new tests will be available ?
Quote from: Fredouille on 08:35, 09 November 16I just have a silly question that only people with real CPC can answer.I am new in this forum so maybe the answer is already hidden somewhere.I am just wandering what is the time needed by the floppy drive to become "ready" when motor is starting ?And also the time to become "not ready" when motor is stopping ?
Quote from: Lone on 16:12, 13 May 17Hello,It seems that the first link is not correct. Using http://www.cpctech.org.uk/test.zip instead works (the zip file is recent)Anyway, thanks for this amazing tool !
Quote from: Fredouille on 09:55, 26 May 17Hello Kevin,I am beginning to play with your new tests and I feel very happy with them.We just need the disk containing the test and an empty one to perform tests.
Quote from: Fredouille on 09:55, 26 May 17Furthermore, that is just easy to recompile them... And for that, a great THANK YOU !!
Quote from: Fredouille on 09:55, 26 May 17For the moment, I just have one question: How to interpret those errors ?
Quote from: Fredouille on 14:59, 26 May 17Thank you, I do not need any dumps for the moment.Your steps to create the test disk seems OK.As you said, I have already changed tests order to remove FM and MFM, as I know there are not relevant for me because my emulator doesn't handle FM mode, no DMA as well.I am not sure, but i believe I have found some bug into disc\fdc_write\fdctest.asm:line 1766: "ld hl,res_d_ov_fill" instead of "ld hl,res_d_wc"line 1782: "ld hl,res_dd_ov_fill" instead of "ld hl,res_d_wc"I will try to test using a real CPC...
Quote from: Fredouille on 17:25, 26 May 17Tests done with same results (failure on both Caprice and real CPC6128).I have tried to attach pictures without success...Attach CPC Picture: Your attachment has failed security checks and cannot be uploaded. Please consult the forum administrator.
Quote from: Fredouille on 09:16, 27 May 17I have performed my tests yesterday on a CPC6128 French including UM6845R (CRTC) and UM8272A (FDC).I will try to fix the drive of another 6128 French including HD6845SP (CRTC) and D765AC-2 (FDC).I am using HxC to execute FDCTEST and all tests are performed on internal drive.Edit : I can also try on a 664 French including HD6845SP (CRTC) and D765AC (FDC).3 differents FDC !!
Quote from: arnoldemu on 10:31, 27 May 17Fantastic.Please continue to report bugs I am adding some new tests today and I will fix all the problems reported I didn't try the tests on a 664 or DDI-1 yet. I do have them but I didn't have time to run them yet. It is possible one of these does support single density
Quote from: Lone on 14:35, 06 August 17As I don't have any PLUS at home, do you have a photo of the complete screen of your plus, to check ?
Quote from: roudoudou on 14:48, 06 August 17There is no differences with the sprites in the upper screen. I tried to reproduce a priority bug but i failed. Maybe Offset has a code for this.
Quote from: arnoldemu on 15:00, 06 August 17I haven't heard of this bug. There is a bug with the sprite priorities?
Quote from: roudoudou on 16:50, 06 August 17Be sure as soon as i have more informations about it, you will be the first informed
