+batari Posted June 27, 2014 Share Posted June 27, 2014 It's time to post the beta version of the 1.06 Harmony BIOS. To update the BIOS, using the USB cable is no longer necessary (provided your Harmony is loaded with 1.05 BIOS or later.) Instructions: 1. Make sure there are no existing BIOS files on the SD card (filename starts with "hbios"). If they exist, delete them first. 2. The zip file contains two files - copy both to the root directory of your SD card. 3. Boot your Harmony in your 2600. 4. In the Harmony menu, run the "bios_updater_NTSC.cu" (select and run it as you would to play a game.) 5. The Harmony will take about 5 seconds to update the BIOS. Harmony_Bios_106_beta.zip You can also use the USB cable method to update the BIOS if you prefer. This is the NTSC BIOS. A PAL BIOS will be built and posted in a few days. Changes since 1.05 include: MMC card supportImproved E7 auto detectionChanged AUTORUN to AUTOROM to avoid problems with Windows autorun filesConsole switches bugfix in Menu 7800 detection preserved Harmony Encore support, new bankswitching types: 3E (e.g. Boulderdash) F0 (e.g. Megaboy) X07 (e.g. Stella's Stocking) EF (64k) EFSC (64k+SARA) DF (128k) DFSC (128k+SARA) BF (256k) BFSC (256k+SARA) ... more coming soon.
