TIFILES >> DSK

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 I downloaded the fortran (disk/files) available here on Atariage.

 Looking at the files - they have a TIFILES header.

 

 I'd like to use these with Classic99 - what is the easiest way to convert these to a compatible .dsk file?

 Also, so there an image for a DS/DD .dsk file for classic99?

 

Thanks,

Dano

put them in a folder in the classic99 directory and point classic99 DSK1 at them?  in FIAD mode they work directly from there.. 

 

use one of the tools to copy them into a dsk like tidir etc.

 

You can create a dsdd disk image in tidir under File, create new dsk image

Thanks for the heads up, it took me a while to figure out the combo of tidir and settings in classic 99 to make everything happy..

I'm might not be done, but I'm on my way.

I eventually, through a long journey had to go the *.dsk route, as the fortran compiler is really coded for dsk.fortcomp.* - so in this case the disks name was essential.

Don't make disk images for Classic99 - they are a compatibility concession. Primary disk interface is raw files in a folder on Classic99. ;)

 

The disk name can be emulated with folders, name the folder with the name of the disk, and it /should/ work. For instance, if the folder on your disk was named "C:\Classic99\FORTCOMP", then "FORTCOMP" would be the disk name. The TI search is case-sensitive, so that matters.

 

At least, it's supposed to. A quick test just now shows it's returning the last 10 characters of the path instead of just the last folder, so I'll fix that. ;)

 

(Edit: it's working for normal DSK.DISKNAME.FILENAME access, it just shows up wrong in the sector emulation. So feel free to use it now. ;) )

Thank you for your work on the emulator. I initially tried to use WorkShop to rename the disk, that of course didn't work out well for me!
