DMK Creator 3.2 was unleashed!

This tool lets you create an DMK image of a protected disk using direct access to the hardware.
And after that, you can use the emulator OpenMSX to run the disk.
Be careful using this tool. It can copy every MSX disk creating a perfect DMK image file. Your protected disk is not safe anymore.

News in ths version:

1 - Totally new dectection routine to deal with all protections of each track.
2 - Now it split the target DMK image file into 2 formatted disks.
3 - Some minor bugs were fixed.
4 - No need to press Control key during boot anymore.
5 - It works with DOS, DOS2 and Nextor

Enjoy it!

DMK Creator 4.2 Masterpiece Edition was unleashed!!!

This tool lets you create an DMK image of a protected disk using direct access to the hardware.
And after that, you can use the emulator OpenMSX to run the disk image.
You can save the DMK file even if you have just 1 disk drive, but it supports 2 disk drives and many mass storage devices. The technology is on your side.

PS: Remeber that if you don't have a mass storage device, you will need 2 formatted disks to receive the DMK file. The file will be split into to 2 files (DEMO.DM1 and DEMO.DM2), one for each floppy disk. In the end, use the tool "File Joiner" to create one DMK file (DEMO.DMK).

Be careful using this tool. It can copy every MSX disk creating a perfect DMK image file. Your protected disk is not safe anymore.

News in ths version 4.2:

1 - Fixed a minor bug that took so much time to identify some unformatted tracks.
2 - Some routines were optimized.

PS: I have copied Shrines of Enigma perfectly using OpenMSX. I used of course, the image file from Wouter. But in a real computer and with a real disk, as I don't have the original Shrines of Enigma disk, I created the protection using a routine that Wouter sent to me and DMK Creator copied it perfectly.
