wow, something developed for the A1000 36 years after introduction! My A1000 has been in the box for a decade. Maybe I should dig it out...

I was interested in the Parceiro at first for my stock A1000 PAL, but after reading this thread I believe it is a bit too much of an "old school" extension for me and I'll go for a kickstart switcher 1.3/3.1.4 and TF536 accelerator board which combines both memory (64MB), 030 acceleration, and IDE storage capacity...

One of the things about the original Parceiro setup that was baffling me was how it displays results in the CLI or Shell when performing a LIST command.

Normally, we like to see something like this:
goodList.jpeg

But what the Parceiro does looks like this:
badList.jpeg
I went through every single config file I could think of, line by line, trying to determine where that was coming from. While interesting data, it's way overkill on the native resolution of an A1K, forcing each result to wrap to two lines.

For me, it made reading and scanning directories a real PITA.

Finally I threw in the towel and asked David Dunklee about it, and if he knew where I could adjust that output.

Come to find out, it is in fact the FAT95 driver that gets installed in the beginning which creates that expanded directory output. And, it so happens David had already found a fix with an updated FAT95 driver, which he sent me.

Dunklee:
For FAT95, I recompiled making the default to “off” versus “on”; I also updated the English to German translations correcting for grammar/formatting. Other than that, it’s the same FAT95 as in the source code.
If you own a Parceiro and want your directory listings to go back to what you're used to in nice little tidy 1-line columns, you can download the updated driver here.

Remember, you will need to copy it on top of the file on your SD card and also the boot floppy disk in the L folder.

When you buy a Parceiro, it comes with an SD card for you.

Anyone got this imported int UK? I have to pay what I feel is an unreasonable customs duty. I will pay it, but don't like being ripped off.

I bought the to-be-soldered kit to save money. I thought it would be 20% + holding fee (parcel force from Ups). I expected 20% of the total fee I paid but they are charging more than that. I think it is 20% of the total fee which includes the delivery charge?

Regards.
