Maybe easy answer on the following:

In MyIDE I cannot understand the following in HELP/MAIN-MENU:

-RESET- : What means combination of IIII OOOO ... binary combination of I/O ?
-SETTINGs- : Prot, iMage
-IMAGE-: Load (pushing L - blue led 2x blicks and black monitor)
Save (same, but nothing happens)
Antic/Shadow/Trace - I read some short explanation, but probably the author understands it, for the user these things are mystery.

Thanks,
Peter

... I forgot:

If I go to Image section, there are empty lines > .... E , but I do not know, how to deal with that section. Is it the same are what I created by FAT32 loader? But I do not see the files, what I have in FAT32 are.

What is the SIDE procedure. Looks like the FAT32 loader, but behaves differently. There is the first line about the status. When I click on it, the whole thing crushes.

Thanks,
Peter

In sequence of your questions:

1111 0000, For non-programmers: Just ignore this.
It are the upper 4 bits of the MyIDE controle-byte.
Telling about ram, rom, 8 or 16k etc.

Prot:
Set IDE-access to read-only (write protected)
(toggle)

Image:
Select access to the image partition for D1: (instead of the logical partition)
(toggle)

Save/Load:
Save or load user memory to CF.
Used for cheating in games.

anykey - Antic/Shodow/Trace:
How to return to the running software (exit from this menu).
anykey - normal
antic - restore antic form shadow-registers
shadow - use all shadow-registers for antic and gtia
- if nothing else works... Trace

Image menu:
Here are disk-images stored in a separate image partition.
There must be images (a valid name with valid density).
enter will select this image and uses it as D1:

Beside this, please refer to the manual.

And if I'm talking gibberish, the selection you mention is perhaps not of interest for you yet.

Grtz,
Sijmen

Put a disk in D1:

Press >
Input NAME FOR THIS SLOT
Press Y (to confirm)

This will copy from D1: to the image slot selected.
Density will be detected and set (S/M/D) correctly.

Alternatively, use your PC, a card reader, and the tool MyIDE-manager.
To move ATR-files from PC to your CF-card / image-space.

Grtz,
Sijmen.
