Does anybody know how to disable the Interlacing in the M util ? (M= the Norton Commander look a like)
Yesterday i configured M on my MSX. I think this is realy nice and i also like the status bar during file/directory copy actions. You can modify the F1 till F5 keys how you want .. it's also possible to create actions on file extentions... like in MM. I also like the function that you can copy and delete directory's that are not empty...

It's a great file manager; but it can't handle with a lot of files located in the same directory. Not sure about the number; but it badly corrupts the screen when it happens...:-(

edoz,
M uses interlaced screen7 mode, which has 512x424 resolution.
Indeed, it is quite nice for displaying korean character Smile
M uses 8x16 & 16x16 sized font for english & korean character.

Anyway, you cannot disable interlace display in M.
This is intented for hi-resolution display. Sorry for that.

M can handle 255 elements(dir+file) in one directory.
and it does not check overflow for elements now :P

I hope next version can handle this situation.
Thanks.

Hey, thanks!. Not a big deal, I was thinking in organize my CF first...Wink

Keep on the good work!. It's amazing how fast it feels being 512x424. Btw, I didn't notice the interlaced as my TFT seems to have a high persistence!, cool!
