Quote from: zhulien on Yesterday at 18:36Have you tested Symbos with the Multiplay (Amiga Mouse) and Albireo?  It seems that when Albireo is plugged in Symbos mouse doesn't work - however the mouse still works from BASIC - odd?

I just read this post

https://www.cpcwiki.eu/forum/amstrad-cpc-hardware/albireo-usbsdserial-interface-for-cpc/msg223372/#msg223372

likely it's trying to use a USB mouse on the Albireo - I guess I need to find a mouse that works on it (so far no luck).
What other hardware do you have connected?
The priority is:

1.) SF3
2.) Albireo
3.) SF2
4.) Multiplay

So if an SF3 is connected, it will choose its mouse.

As you read the other post, which describes the same, what is wrong now? Yes, you need a simple mouse, which has the boot mode. See the other post. The issue is, that modern mouses have a crazy complicated HID protocol with all these different buttons and resolutions. If you can't switch them to boot mode, it's a mess. Maybe at one day someone will write a driver, which supports all the different bit-depth of the mouse values etc.

Yes, it most likely has dry joints. Reflow the solder on the pins of every connector on the PCB and I'll bet the problem goes away.

When I want to download "Flash programming utility", I have an error :
Login required
Please log in to upload files.


I have already downloaded many files from CPCWiki without having to log in...  ???

Of course, my CPC Wiki forum account and password are not working.
And I don't want to create another account on CPC Wiki again...

Is there a way to provide this DSK file in a simpler way ?

It seems the cuteness has invaded CPC game graphics. Whether or not that's positive would be a good topic for a lengthy debate.

Quote from: TotO on 14:42, 16 April 20I have never understood why it was required to swap the buttons for left-handled peoples, when the brain already do that.  ;D
I read left handed people have two of the same brain halves, maybe that is why.

I plugged both in and they both show up, do they have some type of autodetect system to know 2 of them are present?  They both work as mass storage devices in UniDOS perfectly.

but... if I do plug a mouse into one (i.e. for Symbos), then it prevents DFA and DFB from showing up until I turn the CPC off and on again.  I am guessing it is trying to detect a storage device and failing as a mouse isn't one.  But... I don't know if the issue causing DFA and DFB from showing up is a UniDOS bug or a Albireo UniDOS node bug.

trying to add harddrives to Symbos, is there any docs that explains how the mass storage control panel item works?

there are floppies and hxcs if I choose floppies - at least for me, the hxcs don't work in Symbos, but i don't know if I am doing anything right or not.

then there are non-floppies, slot 1 and slot 2, each of them with 1 to 4 primary partitions and not partitioned, but which physical devices are they?

only primary partition 1 works for me, and whether I choose slot 1 or slot 2, they are both the M4 which is where I ran Symbos from.

my mass storage devices are:

- IDE (x-mass)
- M4
- SD (albireo sdcard)
- UMS (albireo USB mass storage)
- SD2 (albireo 2 sdcard)
- UMS2 (albireo 2 USB mass storage)
- DFA (hxc drive)
