Write MSA image with kyoflux

Post by Gunstick »

Hi

so I download a demo from pouet, and having no floppy in my laptop, I need to get it to the ST.
I can put it first into HXC and then write a floppy with the STE which I then insert into the ST... but that's quite cumbersome.
I don't want to buy a second HXC or reconnect the HXC between 2 computers. So the idea came to directly write the download to the floppy connected to my kryoflux.
Well... how would one do that? I think this is just a problem to convert .MSA -> .ST -> STREAM file?
To make things interesting, I'm running this on linux. So would need sourcodes instead of fancy windows EXEs.

Thanks for any help,
Georges

HxC allows for conversion, from *.ST format to *.raw (KF stream file).

the sources are here :

I wrote a little linux script. input ST output a floppy. And it works! Cannot publish the script as it contains my directory structure. Both hxc and kf are not really playing nice when not in the install folder.

shame, would have been great, as well as a solution to write back easily the union demo on a fresh disk :)

How ? Aufit doesn't read MSA, and can't convert the format to KF raw for writing.......

The HxC software allows this without problem. Just open and export the msa file to the wanted stream file format (*.raw or scp).
