You can press delete when entering filenames. Just verified this in SpecEmu and my ZX-UNO.
Odd, did not seem to work for me, will try again...

Here you have a link to my non-working snapshots.

And yes, snapshots created with default and Dr Slump's nmi work well.
Could you add an option to delete and rename files?

My dream would still be:
mark, change drive (how Dr. Slumps NMI.SYS "button U"), then insert => then we would have a whole manager :mrgreen: :mrgreen:

Well, even version 0.8.8 cannot call commands, when you are on hd1, nor can you copy files from hd0 to hd1 :oops:
One version could, but I think it was before version 080 ?

I am also not satisfied with anything ;)
Hi Spezzi63,

I not really understand what you want to say :roll: Maybe you would post this on esxDOS-Forum at http://board.esxdos.org/ in the "Dr. Slumps" thread or the "esxDOS 0.8.8 released" thread instead of this thread here? :?:

I've had a look at the snapshots and can see what's going wrong - the code that saves the 49152 bytes of RAM from the file in /tmp/browse.nmi to the snapshot file is failing for some reason on your setup. The extra 128K RAM banks seem to be saving correctly. Could you download this test version, save a snapshot and tell me what (if any) BORDER colour you get and any 'Error!' message you get including the number underneath.

OK, it appears the error is in the code that tries to open the RAM contents file which is saved to:

Code: Select all

/tmp/browse.nmi
when you initially enter the NMI. It is failing to open it so when it tries to read the contents of the file it's writing the wrong memory into the snapshot. I'm guessing you're not having any issues entering and leaving the NMI menu inside games - games resume correctly and the previous screen is restored?

I've uploaded another test version here to get more information. Again, please note the border colour, error number and text to the right of the error code - this should read something like '/tmp/browse.nmi'.

We already covered that topic:
http://board.esxdos.org/viewtopic.php?id=80

With emulator FUSE with DivIDE
flash esxdos
DivIDE write protect
DivIDE-Master esxdos088.hdf and DivIDE-Slave any other hdf
Hard reset
go to hd1

P.S. bob_fossil , Sorry, I couldn't help it 8-)
Can the ZX-UNO load an hd1 for ESXDOS ?

greetings

Problem solved, it was easy, I didn't have a TMP folder! Sorry for the trouble.

Glad you sorted it out. It's also motivated me to add some code into the NMI.SYS to check for the existence of the /tmp folder and create it if it isn't there - to stop this sort of thing happening again in the future. I can't imagine the NMI was working at all for you if it couldn't save that file in the first place?

v0.06
  • ...
  • Shift + N will now restart the NMI with the file SYS/NMI.ORG. So if you copied the esxdos NMI.SYS to this path, Shift + N would restart the NMI using the default esxdos NMI. To restore the browse NMI, either run the supplied .dot command NMIINIT or hard reset / power cycle your machine.
    ...
What do you think on this idea: Shift+N should start a menu which can launch one of multiple "Other/old NMI.SYS"?
E.g. named SYS/NMI.001, SYS/NMI.002, SYS/NMI.003, SYS/NMI.004. Or launch these direct via Shift+1, Shift+2, Shift+3, Shift+4

Thank you for thinking over it and for the work you already done!
