ADFFS 2.80 released

Post by sirbod »

ADFFS 2.80 is now available for download.

2.80 is a major update mainly aimed at RISC OS 5 machines. Dozens of game bugfixes have been added to the game boot scripts and where possible these will patch the games down to RISC OS 3.x. The JFD imager requires a substantially reduced memory footprint (900KB less) when imaging DD floppies and SparkFS is no longer required using the internal ADFFS ZIP extractor instead, freeing up further memory.

For RISC OS 3.5+ machines using PackMan, ADFFS will auto-update.
For RISC OS 3.1x machines that aren't networked, there's a lite version (420K ZIP) which doesn't include support for later OS versions or JFD imaging.

Will the non-lite version image JFDs on RISC OS 3 machines with 2 or 4mb?

It requires 1056K to image a DD as a JFD.

ZLib requires some free memory to compress, so as long as there's free memory after the imager has started reading the disc, it should be possible to image on a 2MB machine.
