HxC floppy emulator in a classic MSDOS PC?

Postby simonsunnyboy » Wed Oct 25, 2017 5:46 pm

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?

That is great news.
As far as I can see, the selector is a standard executable for DOS.
How is this linked with a DOS floppy for booting?

AUTOBOOT.hfe containing the DOS and the selector in its AUTOEXEC.BAT?
