If you are using Warp mode say to speed up a long intro and for some reason a program crashes then warp mode stay enabled until you press F1 again, noticed it on the last beta but may have been earlier, does this on both 64 and 32.
Yeah, this is a bug I need to fix. The warp key needs to be force-released when the display loses focus for any reason.
No "firmwaredetect.cpp" update...?
It'll be there eventually....
Formatting a simulated 8" disk seems a lot slower than my 1.2MB HD drives. (I don't own any 8" drives). Formatting 5.25" disks seems a little slower. Is formatting speed a function of the drive mechs?
Two differences. First, 8" spins at 360 RPM instead of 300 RPM, so rotational delays are actually lower -- that's how the firmware detects an 8" drive. However, when it does so, it also assumes 77 tracks minimum instead of 40 by default, though that can be changed.
Looking at the FDC command output, it looks like the additional delay for 8" is at the beginning of the Write Track command, which probably means that the drive is blowing a rev between the end of the seek and the start of the track format (Write Track always goes from index to index). For 5.25", it might be a difference in seek or head settle wait timing. This especially gets weird because some models of the FDC change these timings depending on whether they're being clocked at 1MHz or 2MHz. The mechanism shouldn't matter for seek times though because the seek timing is controlled solely by the FDC and the firmware, unlike rotational timing which depends on motor speed.
If you're willing, a good reference I could use is either an audio recording or a video with sound of the ATR8000 formatting a disk, where I can hear the head step. That's pretty easy for me to compare against the emulator to see where it's missing or has too many revs during the process.
Phaeron, the emulated drive sounds are on and I cant turn em off, drive sounds unchecked/checked doesn't change it...
Checked with A8isa1 and confirmed the same issue..
I can't reproduce this. You don't mean the beep-beep-beep sound, do you? That's from POKEY and can't be turned off, whereas the drive sound option toggles the rotational and seek sounds. Any particular drive configuration needed to replicate?
