    This would've been created as in issue on Github, but I can't seem to be able to log into my account there at the moment.


    It would be really nice if there was some kind of indication of connection with the other end when in SIO2BT mode. Perhaps when you first hold down A to get into the mode, it can display the blue LED solid for a couple seconds, but then after that it would flash if disconnected and stay solid only if connected.

    This sounds handy.


    While it's definitely possible, I think it would require a hefty rewrite of the LED code to make it efficient. The way it's written now it would be busy blinking the LED all the time ;) I'll look into it when I have some time.

    I don't think that's what they mean...


    I think the idea is to rotate while in the config while they can see the slots.

    In addition to that, since they have their favorites in the slots and want to boot them at will, they want to take whatever slot they're sitting on and have it swap with D1: directly.... no rotate and it doesn't have to be about so many sided games... just their favorites they want to pick at will from their group of already loaded slots.

    Yes, that's what I was trying to say.

    I guess I can see the point of having the disk swap button 'work' while in CONFIG, it seems to be more work than it's worth. The purpose of the disk swap button is for swapping disks while running something like a multi disk game. Besides, don't some/most programs get loaded into RAM and if you hit RESET you are booting the disk that's in RAM again? ie, moving to the next disk is pointless cuz it boots the previous disk in RAM already? I guess if you power off/on again and have the FujiNet external powered then you could do disk swaps like you want. I just don't see the point of having CONFIG show you that you've pressed the disk swap button. If you're in CONFIG and want to put something in a slot, picking and mounting the disk to a slot seems easy enough to me.

    Thanks @mozzwald , but that's not the color I'd want (though I know the color could be changed) and I want more than just the Fujinet logo anyway. I guess I'll get to work on one in the next day or two, unless someone else steps forward with a better example.

    The color is the 3d printed plastic. The label is clear with black print so it can be applied to any color case.


    Can't wait to see what you come up with!

    Has anyone made (and shared for printout) a Fujinet case label?


    I am thinking about making one, with the Fujinet logo in the middle, and maybe an ATARI and Fuji at the bottom and identifiers for the LED's and maybe buttons (but since they are on the top I haven't decided since a wrap-around label probably wouldn't work well, or even above the LED's since current case designs have the grooves matching their respective computers). But I wanted to check if there are labels already available to use. Or if anyone has made up decal labels (especially clear ones with print) for sale that are more professional than say an inkjet printer would print out.

    @Gavin1968 has made a logo sticker, but I can't find them on his site for sale

    The baudrate is not stored persistently, which means, after a long press, it always starts with 19200.

    I recently added a configuration option (saved to fnconfig.ini) for bluetooth mode enabled at boot. I might be able to add a persistent option for baud rate or remember last used baud rate if it would be useful.

    LoL, So I watched a 16 minute video, A simply NO would have been enough.

    Perhaps I misunderstood the question. I thought you wanted to copy a disk to a tnfs server. Create a new blank disk on your tnfs server or sd card, then copy the original to it using dos or a sector copier

  7. A new firmware update is available at https://fujinet.online/download

    FujiNet Version: 0.5.e6b3e94e
    Version Date/Time: 2021-01-22 01:42:35
    Build Date/Time: Mon Jan 25 02:25:21 UTC 2021

    Crazy Config Changes:

    * Once you have saved your Wifi credentials, CONFIG will skip the first scan/connect at startup. (ESP32 will automatically connect during bootup)

    * If Wifi is not connected when CONFIG starts, it will attempt to connect to the saved AP and re-scan if it cannot connect

    * Selector bar is now green or red. Green means Wifi connected, Red is not connected

    * If you are not connected to Wifi and you choose a TNFS server in the host list you are taken to the Wifi scan screen

    I'm not sure if BT is fully functional yet anyway. I thought I read that somewhere in this sub-forum or in one of the videos or guides for Fujinet.

    It's very much functional but you need a patched OS to support SIO2BT.

    I've noticed since the last (or potentially previous) update that when I boot Fujinet now, it never connects to my network any longer.  I go into config and "reconnect" and its fine for the duration of the session but it used to just connect automagically.  Anyone else notice this?

    I had made a change to config that skips connecting to wifi at the start. This made for a slightly quicker boot by skipping the wifi poll and taking you right to the hosts screen. This does not prevent wifi from connecting automatically if you have already saved your ssid & password. Note, the white light indicates wifi is connected.


    I removed this change yesterday due to a different issue so you can update the firmware again to remove this change.

    Or maybe everyone is using the same 3D printer .stl so all are the same?

    Everyone should be using the same STL but the tolerances from printer to printer will be different.


    The gap between the plug and receptacle was added after the first few units went out and there were issues with the SIO cable not staying in. This reduction in size helped those who had problems. The issues that I've heard since that change have been minimal. I think the spring/pressure pinned SIO cables are more likely to pop out due to the shorter pins in the Fujinet receptacle. I did a lot of searching for pins during the initial design and this was the best I could find. If anyone knows of longer ones, I'd be happy to update the design. I have found some that are ~1.25mm longer but cost twice as much. Not sure if that extra length would be worth the added cost or not.

    This is with the cable pushed in as far as it will go. If I touch it, it will spring out of the connector.

    That looks to be in all the way. The pins in the FujiNet are short and the pressure from the plug pins is pushing it out. There's not much that can be done about this other than getting a different cable.

    the metal pins are too short...they only need to be a fraction longer. if that can't be then the socket floor where the pins come through could be printed thinner.

    The pins are too short. There's really no way to fix this without longer pins.

    Same here, JAE and Chelco cables work better with Fujinet, particularly JAE.

    The JAE cable I have does fit the best

    Unexpected error: could not open port 'COM4': PermissionError(13, 'Access is denied.', None, 5)

    Any idea?

    It's probably due to a hardware bug. Are you able to apply the solder blob fix shown in the post below (pins 5 & 6)? If not, PM me and we'll work it out.

    Hey all!


    Just received my FujiNet 1.3 in an XL type case. My SIO cable will not stay plugged into the back of the FujiNet. It just springs out. Unfortunately, I only have one SIO cable. I've tried both ends of the cable.


    I've pushed hard, so I know that the cable won't go any farther in. It seems like the pins on the FujiNet are too short or the socket is too deep.


    Any idea how I can work around this?

    What type of cable do you have? Can you compare with my pictures here the amount of gap between the cable and receptacle? It should be about 1.5mm gap.

    Flashing didn’t work at all before. I tried multiple times, installed the driver for the us to serial, etc...rebooted my Mac a few time until I remembered this thread. After applying the solder bridge it worked immediately. 

    Glad it's working now. Thanks for confirming the fix.

    Got my FujiNet 1.3 yesterday, tried to flash, no luck. 
    I opened it today and was a bit scared when I saw the real size of U2, but bridging pins 5&6 was not so difficult...with a good magnifier.

    Thanks for all the detailed information and the awesome work you’re doing on FujiNet!

    Did you have trouble flashing it before applying the solder bridge or was it just a preemptive fix?
