New version 130318b of YANCC by SOS for the XMASS extension card

-

A new version of YANCC (Yet Another Norton Command Clone) is available (130318b). It's a text interface to manage your files on the X-Mass and the AcmeDOS ROM with an interface which looks like norton commander or midnight commander).

  • Fixed Unwanted starts of YANCC during Warm-Reset (e. g. Monty on the Run)
  • In rare circumstances, some files are copied empty.
  • In rare circumstances, the ROM-Init of YANCC makes nonsense... (e.g. in "12 Lost Souls")
  • CubeIOS bugfix

It's this new version which is needed if you want to use the new ROM CubeIOS which replaces ACMEDOS.



CubeIOS, a FAT16,32 IDE-OS ROM for the Amstrad CPC's with XMASS

-

The XMASS mass storage extension card can now be used with another ROM, that is CubeIOS :

  • Detect (nearly) all Fat16+Fat32-Partitions on your CF-Card, DOM, etc. (1st Partition please). Prefered is Fat32 (should be faster with Save-Commands). You can format the media with e.g. Windows and fill it with data.
  • Partial longnames.
  • the usual RSX like |MD, |RD, |REN,....
  • |DIR + |CD accepts wildcards
  • Compatibility should be high (i hope so ;) ) - but i'm playing around with a lower-rom-patch to increase compatibility.

The ROM must be placed below AMSDOS and (if used) M4DOS, PARADOS. It's not compatible with ACMEDOS at the same time. YANCC-User should be update to the latest version.
