Over the course of the last few days I managed to fit a few changes/improvements in TAPClean:
- I simplified the sync sequence matching logic in a number of scanners;
- I modularised the Tx scan in “Mega-Save”, “Freeload Slowload”, “Alternative SW (DK)”, and “MSX Tape”;
- I rewrote the “Freeload” scanner (finally!);
- I added support for “Barbarian II” in “Palace Tape F1”.
All changes are now available in the code repo, tagged as “v0_36_pre_6”. Here’s what the first change looks like:
You can appreciate the above diffs to the “Tequila Sunrise” scanner by browsing the code repository here.
Finally I am looking for all tape images using either Palace F1/F2 as I might change these scanners significantly. It’s really something I am still pondering as the same sort of change was done for “Enigma” and I am not convinced of the real benefits.
