Interestingly nobody told me... well, I know and I'm working on it...
What??? Well, yes the ROManager for FutureOS has some serious problems, but thanks to SyX who helps me a whole lot with testing, we will get it hopefully running well one day.
BTW: I think to add some functions, like EDIT a ROM, not as sophisticated like in MAXAM, more a basic routine, because I just can use some API functions of FutureOS. But first, 1.36 must run properly.

Since it is weekend and I have had some time...
 
Well, just a video about the different file-header icons, descriptions and so on, used by FutureOS file-header structures. (More detailed informations are in the official handbook or just ask here in the forum).
File-Headers under FutureOS on Amstrad CPC 6128, 6128 Plus
Have a great day all together :-)

Dear FutureOS and MegaFlash users. Please update the ROManager to the version of 2011-09-23, that's important :-)

Quote from: TFM/FS
Right, in WinApe you to "Settings", there to "Memory". Then you install the four FutureOS ROMs at ROM numbers (ROM select) "Upper 10", "Upper 11", "Upper 12" and "Upper 13".
 
The FutureOS ROMs are hardcoded, that speeds them up, but they need to be installes as ROMs 10-13.
Quote
Now, the MegaFlash has 32 ROMs and it's an advantage to use the upper ROMs too. Only FutureOS ROM A does need a ROM number between 1 and 15. So the others can be placed anywhere else.
Now this is possible, because the new automatic Installer adapts the ROMs, so all ROM numbers can be used.
 
If you like a FutureOS version with special ROM numbers, just let me know and I send you the adapted intaller.
Great :), may you make some FOS roms for my SF2 with the B, C, D roms prepared to work from 26, 27 and 28 positions (being the rom numbers 0 to 31)? The A will be at 10 position. Thanks ;)

No problem, just send me an email to futuresoft at gmx dot de.
 
I will send you back a small questionaire (with questions about: which language programs shall speak, color or monochrome monitor and so on...). Then you get your personalized version :-)

During the last days I had a well and productive conversation with MacDeath and he gave me some good hints... so now you can download the big handbook of FutureOS in Word format at www.futureos.de
 
MacDeath also converted it into PDF, I'll put that on this post directly :-) Thank you very much!!!

Just let me know what you need. Maybe an ASCII Version for CPC would be good too?

Well, I'm already going into Spanish. Miguel Sky offered me to translate the FutureOS texts to Spanish. However I'm a bit short in time at the moment. But now it makes sense to keep that translation in mind. It's not that easy as one may think, since some words are used for different messages... But after the release of one of my current running projects I have a "slot" free for the translation :-) I just hope that MiguelSky will still be willing to do that than, because I waste so much time...  :-X

Yes he does! Of course! However I have to extract the text from 500 KB source (and it's not that big due to comments ;-) So I just have to start working on it! And as said the text is not always just plain in RAM (more often it is, but not always), so I have to care about this too. Further if he is so kind to do the translation, I'll not going to bother him with anything else :-D
 
Well, there is FutureOS long-term plan up to the year 9999 (then the RTC must be replaced) *hihihih*

Oh, you can post them here. It's your work - and a very wonderful one :-DDD
 
However it will take some time until we see a final result, I have to convert them to CPC, convert them to data, then create an appropriate application for it, for their installation and so on.
