Not a bad little tool, this version’s a little buggy though… thankfully we have DART (or Claus) to delegate to ;-)

DART 1.2 - Directory Art Importer

C disguised as C++, but that's easily fixed ;) Very nice (and small!) tool, finally inspired me to develop my own.

The bug appeared when I tried to create a .d64 image using a 368 blocks iffl file. Maybe it has to do with the size of the file. It works fine with the c1541 that comes with vice.

I thought the version here was fixed TBH. The bits in each byte in the BAM was reversed. Just add a (7-i) somewhere in that code. Should be easy to spot! :)

Someday I'll upload a new version that also works on Mac OS. I don't use this tool anymore since I joined Booze. HCL assimilated my tool chain and forced his own down my throat. (much to my delight => I don't have to maintain the code).

@Jackasser: This tools needs a update or a goof section. The d64 created contains a invalid bam. Files get corrupted when copying more files onto the disk.

Why do I get a DIR error (71) when I try to save a file to a disk created with this. I thought it was supposed to be better than C1541 :P

@Jackasser: Maybe it is the virus on your computer that causes it. :)

@Peisilulli: Noted. Will dig into it. Sounds like I fucked up then and that it is pure luck it works on Linux and Cygwin then... Thanx!

I have compiled a version for MaxOsX :
If you add before the while loop at line 136 of cc1541.cpp a line containing :


then the internal MacOsX library "getopt" call works at expected ...

No XGetopt.cpp adaption horror needed .
Perhaps this works on Linux too, I have not checked it yet ...

This compiles, but doesn't work as-is on OS X. Something goes really weird with the system builtin getopts() call (symptoms as Frantic described :). I have a horribly mutilated hack that uses the XGetOpts.cpp/.h files that seems to work for OS X if anyone is interested. I will debug it properly at some point and send a patch to Jackie. :)

@frantic: Fascinating!!! :D I mean... the function usage() ends with an exit(). How is it possible? Please fix the bug or remove the virus from your computer.

It compiles just fine on MacOSX. However, when running the tool without parameters, the program seems to corrupt itself (because after execution the binary has a different size). Not that it matters a lot I guess, but.. :)

User Comment
Submitted by WVL on 18 August 2008
OK, I think it all works now :) At least my (read : Krills) loader can read the files stored at tracks 36-40, and all seems good ;)

@p: Yes ofcourse.

Can this tool use the unused blocks in the directory (=track 18) for data ?

New exe added with some bug fixes (Thanx WVL). Perhaps more fixes will come. The 35-40 track mode is kinda ad-hoc atm. Also added the source.
