No problem, pity my sceen capture can't record my voice.....

MyBIOS is designed to be 400/800 and XL/XE compatible.
"build-in OS-B" :-)
That was one of my main goals in rewriting the Atari-OS.

I tried booting Ulysses disk #2 and #3:
Disk #2 ends in a blue screen and disk #3 is a backup tool.

I think you need to copy them again to image space.
Now I'm positive something went wrong there.
Since the other disk-set works and I can't reproduce the black screen.

Perhaps you should strip the filename from special characters.
This give issues too. I used the manager, not the command-line.
I remember there is also a copy function to image-space with padding.
Adding zero's to fill the ATR to a complete disk.

But it could well be, the windows-overlay now works, Microsoft mysteries.
Give it another try and/or use the same directory-structure as I have.

Grtz,
Sijmen.

I'll try again. Weird thing is, using the FAT32 Loader I can get Dark Crystal to run but the same thing happens with Ulysses!

Well I still can't get it to work. I wonder if it only works on PAL for some reason...

Tomorrow I will get out my NTSC machine.
Till later. :-)

[edit]
The next day (march 5th):

1200XL (NTSC) tested with 4.9.B16
Works as a charm, both games.
No idea why not at your place.
:-(

Interesting. Can you try the Fat32 Launcher? Yours will probably start with the launcher also...where mine doesn't.

on NTSC, with the fat-loader:
Dark Crystal loads disk A.
Ulysses boots into a black screen.

Tried 4.9.B16 again, to be sure:
Both games load fine.

Lets try the other way around.
Download and flash your cartridge with my content.
That works here and seems to be OK.

OK. I would like to make a backup of my cartridge in case I need to go back. How can I do that?

Hello. I updated MyBIOS to 4.9.B16. I put the CF in my PC but I can't find "MyIDE Drive Manager LBA2". My CF was partitioned with my PC.


Did you backup your cartridge here?

No I didn't. Can I just re-flash with the 4.9.B16 you posted earlier to go back to where I am now?

Yes, you can. It's the file from the 4.9.beta topic:
viewtopic.php?f=17&t=1585

Perhaps a misunderstanding too, you only flash the cartridge-content, nothing on your CF-card.

I just want to be sure you downloaded and installed the correct beta.
In the meantime, I tested the download-link myself and 4.9.B16 still works on both games for me.
PAL and NTSC.

Never the less, I suggest you just try my content uploaded in a reply above.
You won't miss anything, it's the same content as the download.
Has some games on flash, I use for testing and playing.
Plus you have Altirra Basic 1.52.
Plus an alternative fatloader if any xex won't work/load with the atarimax-loader.

Grtz,
Sijmen.

Well, it still doesn't work. It goes to the black screen just like the previous contents on the cart. I tried "The Dallas Quest" and that does work so it must be related to the OS-B thing since that is the only difference between the 3 games.

Thanks Sijmen for all your help. I'll keep checking the forums so if you ever do happen to think of something let me know. Meanwhile, I create new threads for other titles or questions.

Thanks again.

Then the problem lies into a faulty copy of the images.
100% positive about this.
Since the original files you uploaded do work.....
PAL, SECAM, NTSC and emulation.
Even on the 1200XL :-)

I copied the image several times even to different slots. I think it is the OS-B thing not working with this cartridge. I can't even get anything to run that requires OS-B from the FAT32 Launcher. I tried them with and without the [osb] tag in the filename and launching using "o", "ctrl-o" or trigger...they just won't run. I have the osb.bin file in the FAT32 diurectory.
