+DrVenkman Posted February 21, 2021 Share Posted February 21, 2021 So I wasn't really sure where to put this so I figured I'd just start a new thread. This spun out of a post I saw on the Facewebs by Thom talking with someone about printer emulation, of all things. So as an aside to that post and the replies, I plugged in my handy AtariWriter cart, tried to boot my 1200XL from FujiNet but that ... didn't work. The AtariWriter cart rom seems to take control of the boot process even before SIO polling and sends you right to a very corrupted SSID selection screen. If you press "S" to skip (since my network info is correct and has been since forever ago), I get a garbled and incomplete Hosts/Slot selection screen. From here I appear to basically be stuck, unable to select hosts or mount disks in slots or even mount and boot whatever may have been selected prior to this session. This occurred last night with the prior firmware and just to make sure it hasn't been affected, I updated this FujiNet with the release Mozzwald pushed yesterday and tried again with the same result. Of course, if I disable CONFIG with the web interface and then boot, AtariWriter can use a different boot device (I tried it with an ATR mounted on my SIDE3, which was also emulating the AtariWriter cart), and it will also work when booting from a physical drive (using a real AtariWriter cart for the sake of being thorough). From there, FujiNet will still let you emulate whatever printer you want, which is still useful, but not as useful as being able to use it to boot DOS while using this particular cart. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
