Fred, I use your program, DM2K whenever I reach for a DM. Question, does it format floppies? Just wondering. And also, I have used it on the Geneve to view a directory, but is there a version just for geneve, outside GPL or TI mode?

 

Thanks so much for your work in this program. I love it

Hi GDMike, Dm2k can format floppies, just press ctrl-f.

 

A special (new/updated) version for the Geneve is coming soon, there was a slight delay of 12 years ... I don't know what happened ;-)

Ahhh...I was blinded by the light, I guess I just never saw that in the help. Duh... sorry bout that.

Thx for clarifying.

Hi,

 

I made a .DSK from the new version, and printed the help pages into a PDF, as I always pinup that to the wall  :)

 

DM2K_v3.2.dsk (Editor/Assembler -> Option #5 -> DSK1.DM2K )

 

DM2K_v3.2--Help-Page_1-3.pdf 412.16 kB · 4 downloads

 

And the song....42 docs printed on the wall, 42 docs printed..pass it around, tadada

I powered up my TI system with SCSI Controller and Syquest Drives. My DM2K say (c) 2003. I think it is time for an update.

Just saw the Geneve version of DM2K is now up and it is in 80 columns.  Definitely going out to grab this file this evening!!!

Well, I went to grab the zip file, and the zip file was not found.  Looks like he has the webpage up, but I guess the program is not ready for release yet.

For all Geneve owners ... there is a Gdm2k available at www.ti99-geek.nl in the projects section. This is a native MDOS version of DM2k but with two file lists. This program is finally finished after a pause of 12 years. Don't ask me what happened ... I guess there was to much fun TI stuff to do ;-)

I love this update.  Presently using it to do a complete backup of my HFDC drive to a TIPI path.  It removes my need to use DM2K for the TI-99/4A and the special DSK0 usage.

 

I'm copying right now my hard drive on one system.  With my other system, I went and tested how many files it would catalog in a TIPI directory with 2800+ files.  It only got 241.  Realistically though, I would manage a directory like that from a Windows share.

 

I like the way you can tab from the left to the right window.  If you can implement the <PG UP> <PG DN> keys at some point in the future, that would be nice.

I should report I was able to do a complete backup from a 40 MB HFDC image to a subdirectory on the PI without issue.  It took over 3 hours to copy all the files, but it works nicely!!!

Do you mean the <ctrl-x>, <ctrl-e> keys (which is allready there) or do you mean the real <PG UP> and <PG DN> keys for that functionality?

btw, just noticed that <PG UP> equals fctn-6 and <PG DN> equals some other fctn-? (4 maybe). May I must get rid of that command (fctn-6) mode and use page-up/page-dn keys for what it says it is.

 

This version has a 4Kb circulair buffer for storing directory names while copying/moving/deleting files. Let me know if it is enough for letting Gdm2k handle your directory structure ! ... ow ... you allready did I see in the above message. Thanks for montioning it.

 

Fred 🙂

Maybe add a warning if GDM2K encounters a folder which exceeds the typical TI file/folder limit? 

Looking forward to trying this on my Geneve :)

 

I'm complying to the TI maximum of 127 files and 114 sub directories. Must add extra bells and whistles for that. (not impossible though, I add this to the list).

Yes, your circular buffer seems to be working well.  The <PG UP> and <PG DN> addition would be nice.  Just more natural that way than the CTRL E and CTRL X combo.

Fred,

 

Gotta say I am loving DM2K for the Geneve even more.  I figured out earlier today, that if I hit <ENTER> where it asks for a default path, it will default to the current path.  Then, I thought wouldn't it be nice if I just entered something like:

 

DM2K E: J:

 

And sure enough, you had entered the ability to pass dual paths.  That may be mentioned somewhere, but it's not something I have come across myself.  Anyways, great job on the update!!!!!

Fred, discovered in the docs the command line passing as I showed above was indeed there.

 

I did see something I could not find in the Help key press.  I did not see the command to create a directory though I did see it on your website for GDM2K.  I will have to also go back and compare to see if some of the other function key presses are listed as I did not recall seeing the F6 keypress for eXecute File command.  Not quite sure if that launches the current program the cursor is on or it asks for a file until I try it.  Either way, it was not something I recall seeing in the help menu.

The new DM2K works in the BATcomputer, (NanoPEB, F18A, USB keyboard).

 

Pleased to report that TI-Dir v8.2a works well in my Win98 system.  Much appreciate being able to run it there.

 

Only problem is that copying "file.s" to "FILE;S", the computer fills-in FILE but leaves-off the ";S" part.  In my WinXP system it fills-in "FILE;S", so it may be a Win98 thing.  I can live with it!

 

A more serious problem is that when I copied a blank 400K "floppy" image from a CF to a .dsk file, the resulting image file showed up as a 720 sector image.  This in a Win2000 system; haven't yet set up the Win98 to read CF boards.

Forgot to add Win2K for reading disk image.

April fool releases:

 

New version of DM2K v3.3 available

and

New version of GDM2K v3.2 available

 

also added this version to the Editor/Assembler module EA5 r9

and added this version to the Flashrom/FinalGrom module download.

 

Added page up/page down keys to Gdm2k. Removed the F6 command mode (clashes with page-up)

 

Made the functioning of the commands C(opy) / M(ove) / D(elete) in Dm2k simulair to Gdm2k:

Using these functions when no files are selected (with the insert / fctn-2 key) then only to file/directory where the cursor points to is handled.

If one or more files/directories are selected (marked with a + character) then only these files/directories are handled.

The previous version of Dm2k also included the file at the cursor location and I think that this was very confusing.

 

See www.ti99-geek.nl

 

enjoy,

Fred ;-)

Fred, we have a weird issue with DU2K or the DSR when running in MAME. Maybe this is also the case on real iron.

 

@9640News tried to connect two IDE drives and to set up four partitions on each drive. However, DU2K never shows 8 partitions; the 8th one is not accessible. When you remove a partition from drive one, the 4th partition of the second drive is accessible again. When you add a fourth partition to drive 1, the fourth partition of drive 2 disappears again.

I will check this on the real iron ;-)

After a long and thorough investigation of Du2k of about 5 minutes a came to the conclusion that there is nothing wrong wint Du2k.

So guess what !
