Brazilian MSX fan sd_snatcher just released a new version of the Firehawk patch from last week. New in this version:

  • Fixed a bug that caused problems when changing disks in MSX-DOS1
  • Fixed the HTIMI handling. Now the drive stops normally on floppy interfaces that do this by software.
  • Updated the disk-check routines
  • Released as an auto-install patch, to avoid any copyright issues. The supplied scripts will copy the files from your disk-images, patch them, and copy the additional files to their places.

I found excellent documentation about the MSX architecture on the MSX-Archive. It helped me a lot on this project.

The problem is that when you dump disk 1 you may get different result each time, thanks to copy protection. (Ok, it was loooong time ago, but I think problem was on sector 9 or something like that... near beginning anyway)

That shouldn't be much of a problem, since none of the files sit over the "defective" sector of the copy protection. Once you use the original disks to generate the images, the patch will always work fine.

@OeiOeiVogeltje

1) Have you placed the English IPS translation patches on the right folder before using upgrade_firehawkHDD?

2) If yes, just type "SETLANG EN" (without the quotes, off course) on the MSX-DOS prompt

I meant that is the problem, if you check out only the SHA1 checksum...

@NYYRIKKI

Sorry, still can't see the problem....

The .dsk file SHA1 isn't checked by the scripts because of that. Their SHA1 are mentioned on the README file only as a reference.

The scripts only check the SHA1 of the resulting HDD files, but none of the files uses the protected sector as in fact that sector do not contain any useful data.

So, once the user dumps DSK images from his original disks, he well always get the same resulting HDD files, don't he?
