UberCassette for ALL Amigalikes!Posted by Spirantho at 20110308 21:29
Grab your Commodore or Acorn tapes for emulators now!

I've just uploaded a new archive of my latest project:


It will - one day - do everything to do with dumping cassettes of 8-bit machines, but as it stands V0.02 supports Acorn Electron, BBC, and - of course - Commodore 64, C16/+4 and VIC-20 tapes. It supports raw TAP files as well as binary T64 files for the Commodore machines, and UEF files for Acorns. Just feed it your WAV file - even copy-protected ones - and it'll give you a nice emulator friendly tape file, ready for Vice or whatever.

Soon I'll be adding support for other machines, such as Spectrum, Amstrad and anything else I can think of. Kind of like my Catweasel drivers, except on tape.

I've compiled using AmiDevCPP, and made builds for AmigaOS 3, AmigaOS 4, MorphOS, AROS x86, AROS PPC, Linux x86 and Windows - and full POSIX-compliant source is included. It's just a command-line app at the moment.

Any feedback very much appreciated!

Hmm, might be worth seeing if this can recover more of my old crap from my C16 tapes... the last program I tried really struggled, but I'd have to (a) find the tapes and (b) convert the whole lot again and compare to this: http://www.unsatisfactorysoftware.co.uk/index.php?pg=softwarel&plat=C16

New version uploaded. :) V0.04 in fact, supporting Spectrum (ROM and Speedlock loaders) and Amstrad, and other improvements.
