Thanks, can't figure it out, docs not english and google translate isn't helping :( I will write a script to do it when I get chance.

Here is example how to merge 256k TOS:

Code: Select all

# Set Buffer
bufsize 256k
# Set Working Dir
chdir H:\TOS

# Pull the HI (EVEN) and LO (ODD) ROMs into the buffer
load TOSHI.BIN 0 128k all -> 0 even
load TOSLO.BIN 0 128k all -> 0 odd

#Dump the buffer to file
save TOS.IMG 256k <- 0 all

Still don't get it.. :roll: Run the TTP ? Can only end one line there.. looks more like some command line stuff like DOS.. I only even run GEM and even thats under steem..

Could you merge these 2 file for me please ? I only want to test my ROM cart at the moment. Once I have a working dump file I can do a script to merge the rest of the stuff at a later time.

I use winhex, but don't know if it does high low byte merging ? I can merge rom "one after the other" but that isn't what I am doing.. Not sure how you did it ?
