Quote from: Cyothevile on June 11, 2021, 08:56:30 AMVery excellent contribution. I planned to try to make an ultimate hard drive image for FM Towns with most the preinstalled software. Progress has been a bit slow since I wanted to use desktop to do it. I've concluded it would be ideal to have a hard drive image for 386 machines and then ones for desktop with DX2+.By the way what CF hard drive option are you using?

Quote from: dankcomputing on June 21, 2021, 02:26:44 PMI noticed that most of the CD-related stuff in the AUTOEXEC.BAT and/or CONFIG.SYS for the drive image is commented out. Likely because of that I can't get the CD drive to show up in TownsOS. Was this done for a reason or can I just uncomment those lines and get CDs back on the desktop?

Well, I'm including it with preinstalled games that require installation and all doujinsoft in folders. Originally I wanted to make this for me and a few friends. If anyone wants it I'll make it available. You will need a hard drive emulator to use on original hardware. At least 16gb SD card or cf card depending on what you use.
