hardware OS4   hardware OS4 : New AmigaOS4 Drivers For Catweasel Mk4
   posted by Darrin on 31-Mar-2012 23:50:44 (2691 reads)
Ian "Spiranthro" Gledhill has posted on Amiga.org that he has made some new drivers (v1.11) available for download for the Catweasel mk4 on AmigaOS4:

Quote:

A quick heads-up: at my Catweasel page (http://www.retroreview.com/iang/Catweasel/) I've just put up the latest version of my Catweasel drivers for AmigaOS 4. I've also included the source, and I've already done MOS and AROS in the past, so it wouldn't be too much work to port it to work on those systems either, probably.


Currently supports the following disk formats:
Amiga Double Density 880KB
Amiga High Density 1.76MB
MS-DOS Double Density 720KB
MS-DOS High Density 1.44MB
Apple Macintosh DS varispeed 800KB
Apple Macintosh DS varispeed 400KB
MS-DOS 40 Track DSDD 8 Sectors 320KB
Commodore 1541 (PET/C64/VIC-20/+4 etc.) 35 Track 190KB
MS-DOS 80 Track DSDD 1.2MB
MS-DOS 40 Track DSDD 9 Sectors 360KB
Amiga Double Density 880K 5.25" 880KB
MGT Sam Coupé 800KB
Texas Instruments TI-99/4(a) 90KB
Atari 810 SSSD 90KB
Acorn BBC Micro 40 Track SSSD 100KB
Acorn BBC Micro 80 Track SSSD 200KB
Acorn BBC Micro 40 Track SSSD 100KB 3.5"
Acorn BBC Micro 80 Track SSSD 200KB 3.5"
Sinclair Spectrum MGT +D 800KB
Amstrad CPC / Sinclair Spectrum +3 180KB
Tatung Einstein TC-01/TC-256 200KB
Amstrad PCW 8256/8512 180KB
Atari ST DSDD 720KB
Atari ST SSDD 360KB
Triumph-Adler Alphatronic PC
MS-DOS Double Density 640KB (8 sector)

Instructions for using this with WHDLoad to allow installation of copy-protected disks is all on the webpage.

Any feedback gratefully appreciated. Donations also very warmly welcomed.

As usual: any questions, just ask. Also, if you have a weird disk format I've not supported, it's because I don't have an example of that format. If you can send a disk to me I can probably add support to the next version.

Thanks for reading!

Ian Gledhill

This is good news. I have a Catweasel at home and the ability to use real Amiga floppies on the X1000 will be very nice, plus is also has two Amiga joystick ports.

Thx a lot for this new update !

I just got a MK4 but I have to free one slot on my AmigaOne to install it !

I am wondering whether I will be able to play my old classic games through RunInUAE with my good old Speedking...

It's something I want to do but I need some more AmigaInput developer files.

Alternatively, I could probably add support directly to the current UAE build.... but that's more of a hack. I'd rather get it done with AmigaInput if I can,

@ Spirantho

I hope you can. While Amiga floppies will be nice to use, I've been using ADF files on my various "Minimigs" for so long that I really don't miss them. The missing Amiga joystick ports was my only gripe about the X1000 design and I was hoping the Xena slot might provide them. If the Catweasel does then that would be even better.

You could use the new lib from Huno !

HunoJoyWrapper Library version 1.0.0

You can't use the joystick part (unless you're a coder :) ) yet because I don't have the necessary files. I've prodded a few people but until I get them I can't do anything without hacking it into the code for each app, which destroys the whole point of AmigaInput.

Thanks for the drivers. OS4 support was sorely lacking. At least in an offical way last time I checked. Now I know where to point OS4 users who happen to have one.
