Nice.
Let us know when you're ready to ship.

N.B. Happy to deal directly with you if that helps keep your costs down (avoid ebay fees).

The scrolling is a nice idea. It is perfectly possible on the PIC to make a scrolling file preselection just as on the ARM.
I will look into it. The new ADF code is finished btw and I have verified that writing to ADF is still working correctly.

Almost ready!

The new code is ready.

I have put the new release in a seperate thread to stay in style with the rest of the forum ;) .
See here: http://www.minimig.net/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=629.

The first release of the 18F26K20 firmware worked OK but it had inherited some issues from the latest 18LF252 version.
In the 18LF252, some compromises had to be made to fit everything in. One of the compromises had to do with the ADF routines, causing some titles like Darkmere or Agony not to load. This has now been fixed on the 18F26K20 version. It should now be just as compatible as the ARM version...I hope :lol:

I have also implemented the filename scrolling as requested. It works slightly differently than on the ARM but it makes selecting ADF's with long filenames indeed much more convenient.

This will be my final release for the time being. I will try to buy some chips and set up a small programming service, selling pre-programmed chips for a small fee. A few people already expressed interest. If more people are interested please let me know so I know how many chips to buy.
