Title: Winape IDE File
Post by: SmaugD on 04:35, 21 July 22
Hi, guys, I really hope someone could help me. I'am using Winape for some time now as an old time Amstrad user because for some reason I feel that it's the best emulator of all I tested (Java CPC, Arnold, CPC Emu - bu I might be wrong).

However, there's one thing perplexing me "Enable IDE Devices" option in Settings/Other that doesn't seem to work anything obvious to me. I was hoping I could put a bunch of Amstrad files in IDE image or straight to my HDD, but I don't know how to access it from emulator.

Any idea what I'm missing here?


Thanks!

Hi,

For "straight to my HDD", see there how to do this with "cpcdos.rom" : https://cpcrulez.fr/emulateurs_WinAPEaccesHD.htm

About "ide" (see the blank.ide file into the main directory of winape) they are containers files you'll have to format (depending the os used...) to deal with...

Best.
