Firstly , Massive thanks to people who produced this kit it makes collecting the old
hardware and software so much easier.

I have a simlair version for sinclair and it has changed the way I run software so much
for the better.

Ok I'm and noob to this and I have been over the forum , but various points i need to collect together
so if anyone can help would be nice

1. I have an XEGS (UK) , for compatibility is this the best or is the 800XL best machine ?

2. What files work with no modification of the firmware i see the following XEX , ATR , ROM , BIN and EXE

3. I read about an issue where certain XEX games are not compatible with XEGS without alot of messing around with HEXeditor,
has this been patched in recent versions of the flash cart as I have just got mine.


Sorry if some of these have been answered but I'm finding it difficult to go through all of the various threads and work out
whats current :lol

Thank you

Andrew

Hi Andrew,

The cartridge is plug and play, so basically you do not need to browse the forum ;-)

First stick to the fat32-loader, that is the easy way.

All files mentioned should load and when the software is compatible it will run.
If not, try another version from the internet.

For ATR support you need 2 extra OS-B files in the root of the card.
That is about it.

When you want to read/write to the card, you need to load MyBIOS first.
Go to the MyBIOS topic for more information (manual etc).
Production cartridges come with the 4.8 version.

Later,
Sijmen.
