So can I just clarify something here ?

The SDcard version still only supports ADF on the Amiga, but the USB is the version that supports IPF ?

How many of the different protection schemes from the Amiga are supported by IPF on the USB version ?

I am tempted to make one up. I know there is Kryoflux, but that is for writing out IPF to disks, which, once Magnetic media dies, is not so good.

Hi Jeff, I'm a little confused

It looks like I need to convert the image format into something native for HxC - is that correct?

If so, how do I do it on a Mac?

Yes and to do this on Mac you can:

- Use the windows version with something like CrossOver.
or
- Rebuild the Linux version on Mac with xcode (gcc)

ADF,ADZ,DMS and IPF. But in the last case variable bitrate and flakeys bits protection are not supported for the moment.

Theoretically all.

Anyway the main purpose of the KryoFlux is dumping disks.

Right. KryoFlux gets data off disks, and back onto them. But it's no emulator.

Looks like there might be a few minimal config changes to make, as trying a simple build throws problems with include (malloc.h not found)
Also usb seems to be needed. Could be interesting.

I'll take a longer look at it tonight but it should be straightforward - thanks!

Bit more digging, and it looks like the libftdi that is included won't build on mac OS: there's 0.18 available which should. I'll have a play

Since i don't have any mac to do this, your contributions are welcome.
Don't hesitate to contact me by email.

Excellent, thanks

Right, worked out that I don't need the whole suite, just hxcfloppyemulator_convert... It'd be interesting to expand this to support the USB model on more OSes, but I must admit I'm not interested in that.

By sorting out that malloc problems, that builds and seems to work.
For everywhere that malloc.h is included, replace #include <malloc.h> with
#if !defined(__APPLE__)
#include <malloc.h>
#endif

It builds and *appears* to work: it recognises DMS and ADF, and converts to HFE... Can you send me a before and after image so I can check it byte by byte?

I got a HXC controller recently and I must say it's a great little bit of kit, it's made my Catweasel redundant, I was only using it for writing ADFs anyway.
