Looks a very nice idea to me to use CF instead of DOM memory.
I have plenty of CF 64 and 128M used on Cisco Routers long time ago.

Could you pls tell me if you used this kind of CF adapter showing on Ebay?

@francouai


Yes thats the same adapter as i have used.


I have attempted to update the card with files on a " Mac " it leaves control info on the drive that is not removable on the CPC
I have put some files on the CF card with a PC (Yuk) running XP and that worked ok and the Files ran OK
I just used some 128 meg cards that i had from a Tandy Trs-80 Model 1/3/4/4p project the i was involved with and they worked OK


Good luck            Ray

It looks like the X-Mass rom has been pulled from Git Hub as it is not accessible anymore.

I've just talked to Syx, and he told me that the github repo is down because he'll be moving to bitbucket.


Also, the project goes on and the roms can be downloaded from cpc-power and cpc-rulez.

I don't think that the project is dead, i think that actually the aim for acmedos is to be integrated on the new CPC (Code Name: 8BITerminator)

Hi All


WE Have Been waiting since 14 December 2014 Yes 2014

I think that we have waited long enough.

There is hardware out in the CPC community that is sitting there Idle Because the ACMEDOS ROM has NOT been completed.

Come on Development Team, Make something that we can use,

Yours Frustrated

Hi Ray,

I believe @SyX developed the ACMEDOS ROM and he is very busy at the moment.

Hmmm.
Ok Whats wrong.
I am unable to copy a xxxxxx.txt from one drive to the other. Major Problem.
Plus all the UNIMPLEMENTED " Features " (In The Docs).


We were given the indication that after Christmas 2017 that work would RESTART on the Project,
That did not happen as far as the users know.


@Deveopment team ?


Please finish the Project.

Hi ray,


I don't really understand what is the matter ?
Is your X-Mass full ?
Is it possible to save another file ?


how much memory remains you there on the X-Mass ?

I'm finished with my FAT16 / FAT32-ROM (RC version).
Core features: ACMEDOS alternative, the usual RSX
like REN, CD, MD, .... are available.
ACMEDOS partition or standard Windows format (FAT16 or FAT32, up to 128GB allowed).
I'm looking for a second beta tester in a closed beta test phase.

If someone has enough time and desire, please send me a PM.
