Version 1.4 of the IMG plugin is released!

This version removes a few flaws and small bugs 8)
There is a "refresh after delete" problem workaround included: I just put the filetime two seconds into the future after each delete.

Nice idea! You could also compare the new file time with the last file time, and if it's different, then put it either 2 seconds into the future or into the past, whatever is closer to the current time.

New version 1.5 available.

Fix: When trying to open an image that was readonly, the plugin failed. Now operations that do not alter the image (view, extract) are possible, others will display an error.

File timestamp bug when copying files to 1.44 floppy image.

Post by *jdmarch » 2003-11-11, 15:53 UTC

Hi, Andreas,

An apparent bug: When I use IMGWCX to create or modify a 1.44 floppy image, the timestamps of the files in the image are always incorrect. All the files copied to one image are always timestamped the same as each other, but this incorrect date may be different with a different archive / different copied files.

(In one case, the copied timestamps were off by about 25+ hours, in another case they were 1-1-1980 00:00 )

I'm using Win2K SP4, TC 5.51

Any ideas? I'd really love to be able to use this plugin but timestamps must be preserved.

Also: Is it a limitation of TC5, or of your plugin, that I can't use "Compare by content" on a file within an image file?

Thanks.

It is a limitation of TC5.

Hi everyone!

I've been very busy the last months doing much work on lucrative jobs and less on my plugins :? (I'm selfemployed, and money flows very sparsely - b.t.w. if anyone has jobs to give involving development of electronics - gimme a wink :wink:)

But now I'm back again

Lately I got some mails reporting bugs, flaws and features 8) and I'm going to (hopefully) fix them in the next days - so stay tuned...

Andreas

Hi,

I try to use this plugin to create Floppy images, 1.44Mb to save and USB and open on Gotek floppy emulator, but...

when I create a img file of a floppy, the first three HEX bytes of the img file is filled with zeros, and cannot open in gotek floppy disk emulator.

When I create a img file with another software, the first three HEX bytes is EB 3C 90 and it works.

What Im missing or the plugin has this problem?

Thanks

Jonas

Hi,

it seems, you did not configure the plugin to create a bootable disk.

This can be done either by
- providing a valid bootblock (use bootblock ...) and ticking the checkbox (see read.me)
or
- tricking the plugin to use the builtin FreeDOS bootblock by editing the following lines in the pkplugin.ini file in the [IMaGinator] section like so:

Bootable=1
BootBlock=

then restarting TC.

Regards,
Andreas
