It's really 1.2 improved. I wish they hadn't taken out the beep from the buttons. That is CONFIRMATION for me. In the source, it's labelled BEP. Look for where CALL BEP was removed and replace it at the appropriate place.
I like the faster spin down, but not much.
I really don't think the Indus is really badly behaved at all.
My only issue with it is the SUPERSYNC that I fixed in the ONE and OLNY version of SDX4.23. !!!
If you boot DOSXL 2.35i and program the drive, it would work SOMETIMES in SDX 4.22 The Track Buffering RAMCharger version caused the most lock-up problem (sometimes press BREAK will get you past it).
I don't remember nw what I did, but it IS in the Z80 code of SuperSync that I added an extra NOP or 2 to affect the Bit-Bang cycle time.
I am SO SORRY that I don't remember the exact details. I know this is possible!
Even faster speeds are really possible.
Come on, Z-80 guys help
This could be LIGHT YEARS ahead of Happy, Archiver, BitWriter or anything.
Now, when I run Zork or WordStar from a RespeQt SIO drive locked to 19200, If I play Zork FAST, it works.
If you let time out at all ( there is NO indication ) of how long you can wait.
I normally don't cross post, but this goes to RespeQt as well.
Edit: Dumb ass ME made that SDX INDUS.SYS that works with RAMCharger. At full Sync+ speed..
Sucks that I lost it. This should only take a good hacker a short time to figure this out.
It just HIT me one day when looking over the SuperSync source code.\
I'm burned out (read my comment in the BBS thread)
and don't have all my CP/M equipment any more to do the Z80 stuff.
Oh, I wish I did...
