The Settings Menu
Http-Load is a kind of fastloader for your c64. The most important
difference to other speeders is that it doesn't load programs from a
floppy but a webserver. HttpLoad needs a Retro Replay and a RRNet to
Http-Load is distributed as a ".bin" file. This is a rom image for the
Retro Replay. Use the flasher shipped with your card to transfer it.
The Settings Menu
A reset takes you to the settings menu. Enter your network config here.
Please note that your changes are only kept in the Retro Replay's ram.
They will survive a reset, but will be gone after power-off.
At the bottom of the screen are 2 buttons: "Accept settings" and "Reset
to defaults". Move the cursor to one of them. The button will turn
white and blinks. Press Space or Return to hit the button. "Accept
settings" confirms your entries and leaves the menu. "Reset to
defaults" restores the values for each input field which are shown in
the "default" lines.
Use these keys to edit the settings:
||Go to the leftmost position of the current input field
||Clear the current input field
||Restores old value
||Insert Space / Delete one char
||Move Cursor (also between fields)
||Move one field to the left
||Move one field to the right
||Valid input for IP fields
|0-9 and A-F
||Valid input for the Mac field
|Space or Return
||Hit a button
Input errors are shown in red. You can't leave the settings menu if
there are one or more errors left.
The "Accept Settings" Buttons takes you to the basic prompt. Now
HttpLoad checks for the RRNet. The message "found crystal chip revision
xyz" means: RRNet was successfully detected and initialized.
If you see "no rrnet found" instead, someting went wrong. Please turn
off the computer and check if your RRNet is connected properly to the
Device 32 is now assigned to Http-Load. Place the server name and
complete path of the url in the filename.
Please note that the files on the webserver have to be plain C64 files.
No emulator format like P00 or D64 is supported.
