This thread just got pointed out to me - no uploads at all arrived at Aminet so far. Are you sure you uploaded the original version?

No, I did not... because I wanted to wait for feedback. Last time this happened "automatically" with some other stuff, I think it was the other X-Copy releases in 2009 or 2010.

Anyway, needs to be updated. We don't want to store some 50% thing. I guess I'll lha the original folder as is to document what was on the master and then put phx/acd2001 changes into the "tree".

Maybe phx or acd2011 can supply me with a complete folder to put into the adf, so everything is in place.

I agree. There should be no haste. The source is nearly 20 years old.

Ok, I fixed the problems which acd2011 detected.
For the keymap I used the hex-codes $22, $27 and $5c instead, to avoid problems with any assembler.
The checksum calculation in the program didn't work. There should be no reason to include precalculated checksums. I fixed the responsible code.
Updated source archive attached.

Ok. Somebody interpreted your original post as an announcement that it has been uploaded and asked me why it didn't get moderated. No problem then.

Ok guys, thanks, will update the archive, give proper credit, and exchange. After that, will submit another post here.

After that please feel free to put it up on Aminet so it gets preserved for the community to use and enjoy.

I write a brief tutorial to compile X-Copy.
I'm not English, if someone want correct it, I would be grateful.

It's all PD, i don't want any credit.

Was a final source code version ever confirmed to be completely 100% usable? I can't seem to find it on Aminet, so I guess not...?

Just curious, as I have had the .zips for over a year now and am in the middle of a cleanup (mostly Amiga and C64 files).

I don't know if it's of any use, but I found the DOS version here on my hd, zoned just in case.

There was really no need for a PC version. They made one anyway.

It can copy plain DOS disks. That's it.
