Splitting TOS 2.06 image to burn?

Postby tjlazer » Wed Mar 29, 2006 12:38 am

Hi,

I am trying to burn a TOS 2.06 image for my Mega STE. I have to split the file in two files to burn to ROMs. I used a PC program called WinHEX that can split every other word to make a new file, and I used it to make a Amiga 1200 kickstart ROMs successfully. The question I have is for the LOW and HIGH ROMs on the Atari. The low is the first set and high the second set? ROM 1 and ROM 2 is LOW/HIGH Correct?

if we ever find Greenious, he should be able to answer this straight off the bat. I had an idea that the two were interleaved so that reads would be quicker, but I might be terribly wrong ....

and here is the info and tool to do the split

ROM 1 is LOW
ROM 2 is HIGH

use eproms

make sure to set the jumpers right for the types of chip you use

For splitting ROMs you can also use PPera's Tos Splitter..

I have used it in combination with Steem.. works ok.
