Gotek with flash floppy firmware - Disk selector?

Hi
Just got a gotek installed with FlashFloppy firmware.
Is there some kind of graphical disk selector for this? The selector for the old firmware does not work anymore as I understand it?


It's a hustle to select disk with the two buttons on the actual drive.

Not sure what you mean?

I've attached an OLED display so you can view which disk is selected easily rather than remembering the numbering. The disk selector is disk 000 and you can insert ADF or similar images by selecting a slot for the disk in question.

yes I have an oled display as well so I can see the name of the disk.
But to push on the buttons 100 times til I find the right one is a lot of pushing.
I mean a graphical selector which you boot up on the amiga.

Yes that’s right. I have been using indexed mode at the moment which means naming it 001 etc but it works for me as I’m only using a few adfs. Saves me going through the menu.

You can also use rotary encoder with a button to select the games. Faster then pressing buttons.

Bit late replying to this, but: You can hold a button and the Gotek will accelerate through the available image files.

It's not as good as a rotary encoder or trackball but I understand it's not always practical or elegant to fit one.
