Title: Mass Storage in emulators?
Post by: Devlin on 20:56, 09 October 21
Do any of the current emulator maintainers have plans to implement some form of mass storage feature?


With the advent of devices like the USIfAC ii and M4 it would be very nice to have a AMSDOS friendly mass storage solution in the emulators that can be used to run our backups of all our raw amstrad files instead of just loading DSK/etc etc.

Okay, X-Mass it is. How do I set that up?

Ah, ... Sorry, its x-mem ☹️

I got it sorted. Caprice (my weapon of choice) supports X-Mass and once I figured out the (somewhat) unintuitive method of creating a file, I managed to get it working just fine.

ACE CPC Emulator emulates most popular mass storage devices (thanks to its plugin interface):
Source code is available (for instance, Oricutron, the ORIC emulator, already shares the same ch376 emulation than ACE for USB Mass Storage support).

Regarding M4 emulation from CPCemu, I noticed that it is not that accurate (it fails with M4 UniDOS node), but Rainer is already aware of it and I guess that an update might be available shortly.
