Micko is very helpful as developer. Especially if new drivers exist. smile
He is not overly didactic and his explanations are clear also for non programmers.

I can report him very fast,if some problems exist.

You see, I not collect roms/software for personal using only.
I try to help the developer and spend a lot of time for testing.
Unfortunately, this kind of cooperation not exist with some other developers but is ok for me.

PS: Arbee and judge are also very understandable and helpful.

[LYNX] Added partial support for .lyx files.


I know it is not fully working now.
Just tried to load cart with .lyx extension (converted by ucon64 tool). I can load but graphic errors.
Not sure it is depent of my conversion or of driver.

yes and no. there is some problem (the continuous sound you hear... I suggest you to turn off the sound emulation for the moment)

but to start the driver you have to press Shift + C (i.e. capital C), then press Enter twice and you're finally able to reach the command prompt.

I'll add a note to sysinfo about this.

the "partial support" refers to the fact that we don't support lyx images of games which use memory bank 1 (not sure if any exist however). these would probably fail to load or start both in lnx and lyx format.

the graphical issues are not related to the file format but to incomplete emulation of the lynx (and I have no idea how to improve it at the moment frown ). you would have the same exact issues with a lnx file.

thanks for testing, anyway smile

This didn't entirely work for me. Looking at the todo list in driver code, a lot of work still needs to be done on this driver.

Oh, it works if I keep shift pressed.

Thanks for the info !

Lynx driver

Just a example : Blockout

Picture 1 = Blockout.lnx
Picture 2 = Blockout.lyx (ucon64 --lyx Blockout.lnx)

thanks for the example case, the 2-3 lyx files I found and tested had no issues

I'll try to find the problem and (hopefully) a solution smile
