- Can .raw files be converted to IPF format
- Can .raw files be written to a floppy using Kryoflux or Supercard pro
- Can i in any way play these games in my Amiga

If answer is no... is there any plans to try to make this possible?

Thanks
Yes most of this is possible, at least with the HxC firmware.
If you have the IPF files, just convert them to HFEv3 with the HxC software.

If you have only KryoFlux Raw files or SCP files, convert them with the HxC software to HFEv3.

Is it an diymore.cc screen ?
If yes have a look to this :
http://torlus.com/floppy/forum/viewt...diymore#p17196


If no, have you use the right firmware into the "Next_WIP_Alpha_Firmware_And_Tools" folder ?
(Version is currently HXCFEUSB_V3_1_6_0a.UPD)


btw if you want a fast support, i recommend you the hxc gotek forum :
