I had just discovered the the v.81 version of Star Commnader can be pretty buggy. For the past evening I was having probalems getting a reliable image to come out of it using a Compaq 386 and an X1541 cable. For the most part the image was fine but within the images single bytes were mangled (I believe in a pattern, recalling the cable ML I was converting...) regardless of that Peter Barton confirmed my problems when he posted on Comp.sys.cbm as he was also using a 486 clone and was having similar problems. He found the solution in Star Commander .82 beta and it worked for me as well. So if you have been getting unsuccessful emulations from your SC made disks, it may be from SC and not the emulator (as I said the mangled bytes are spaced out so it could run for a bit before locking the emulator). I suggest going with v82, since it is beta it may not be wise to post it on your sites, but at least give a heads up to those who download .81 that it may not work on some machines well. :/ Larry Anderson :::> now I can re-.d64 my assembers disk and see if Merlin 64 and EA really do work on an emulator... Oh, while doing this I found that disk that has MAX cartridge games on it with a menu driven MAX booter, it may prove interesting if you are doing Max research, or interesting to see the lame possibly beta version of Wizard of Wor on it (makes Archon III look good!) E-mail me and I'll send you the image. -- 01000011 01001111 01001101 01001101 01001111 01000100 01001111 01010010 01000101 Larry Anderson - Sysop of Silicon Realms BBS (209) 754-1363 300-14.4k bps Classic Commodore pages at: http://www.jps.net/foxnhare/commodore.html 01000011 01001111 01001101 01010000 01010101 01010100 01000101 01010010 01010011 - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
