Re: HxC floppy emulator in a classic MSDOS PC?

Is it possible to use the HxC floppy emulator (i have a spare slim version) with a DOS PC from the 80s? As far as I googled, there is no GUI software yet but twill it work with numbered images someway? Yes sure this is possible. And there is a file selector for PC ! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=...

Exactly what i suspected : This is not an HxC Floppy Emulator firmware... The HxC Firmware print "HxC" without stick. So you were scammed with a counterfeiting fw. Can you send me in PM the link/contact of this reseller ? To get a true HxC Floppy Emulator firmware : http://hxc2001.com/stor...

Re: MicroCosmos sad news...

Timing depends, of course, on the CPU as well. I don't have personal experience with the CMOS part, but the 68HC is supposed to be fully compatible, even on undocumented features. The asynchronous delays in the same cycle, such as tCO, are probable smaller (note that doesn't mean less cycles). Conc...
