Please first check installation instruction to understand how to install these files on your CPC.
For now, only the following DOS nodes exist, but their number should quickly grow as they are really easy to create and then make new hardwares to benefit for all UniDOS great features and strong AMSDOS compatibility.
|Internal||-||OffseT||Node internal to UniDOS ROM which is adding access to floppy disc drives5) and tape6).||DFA: internal drive.|
DFB: external drive.
TAPE: tape reader.
|Albireo (source)||1.20||OffseT||Node providing support for the Albireo from PulkoTronics and adding access to integrated microSD card and USB mass storage peripherals.|| SD: MicroSD reader. |
UMS: USB storage.
|M4 (source)||1.21||OffseT||Node providing support for the M4 Board from Duke. It provides access to integrated microSD card as well as a library to store DSK files7), CPR files8) and SNA files9) which can be manipulated through additional RSX. Commandes to manage WIFI connection and integrated Romboard are also available.|| M4: MicroSD reader. |
DSK: DSK reader.
|FatFs - Base FatFs - IDE FatFs - Format (source)||1.22|| OffseT|
based on FatFs
| Node providing support for FAT file system10) for drives plugged on a X-Mass, a Symbiface II or any other compatible IDE interface.|
Caution, this node uses severals ROMs and installation procedure requires more attention than for other nodes.
Please note that if the Nova from PulkoTronics is detected, this node will automatically take advantage of it to save some precious main memory.
|IDE: 1st FAT partition.||Yes||No|
|Nova (source)||0.10||OffseT||Node providing support for the Nova from PulkoTronics and which is implementing a true non volatile memory with high efficiency.||None||Yes||No|
|Zero (source)||1.10||OffseT||Node providing a drive which is able to generate on-the-fly file of any size and any “empty” contents11).||ZERO: empty files.||No||No|

Patch by OffseT
| The CPC6128 firmware ROM patched to handle UniDOS at ROM slot 5 et allowing a full compatibility with softwares normally unable to run when UniDOS is not using ROM slot 7 (instead of the internal AMSDOS).
To be used only on CPC6128 when you cannot install UniDOS instead of internal AMSDOS (at ROM slot 7).
With this patched firmware, UniDOS shall be installed in RO slot 5.
Installing a new firmware requires a ROM extension supporting this feature such as the X-Mem for instance.
Pratically, this patched version includes three different patches:
- During CPC6128 boot, ROM at slot 7 is always the first to be initialized so that its memory allocation is always located at address &A7000 (even if ROMs are installed in slots 8 to 15).
- When a software request to reinitialize the ROM at slot 7 (where AMSDOS is expected), ROM slot 5 (where UniDOS is installed) is initialized instead12).
- The boot message is slightly modified13).
|ParaDOS||1.2||Richard Wilson|| The famous ParaDOS ROM from Richard Wilson which provides support for double sided and 80 tracks floppy discs.
To install ideally instead of AMSDOS at ROM slot 7 or, if not possible, at ROM slot 6.
|Patched ParaDOS||1.2|| Richard Wilson|
Patch by OffseT
| The famous ParaDOS ROM from Richard Wilson patched to be able to work in any slot number14).
Caution, this version is designed to work exclusively when no AMSDOS ROM is installed at all: typically, when UniDOS is installed in ROM slot 7 (instead of AMSDOS), you should install this ParaDOS patched version at ROM slot 15.
|Utopia||1.26||Arnor Ltd.|| The must to have multi-tool ROM .
To be installed in a ROM slot greater than UniDOS.
|BENCH.BAS||1.0||OffseT||Small benchmark program to check read and write performance on the current drive.|

|1.2||OffseT|| Tool to create Amstrad Plus cartridges equipped with a patched firmware which allows to add UniDOS and its DOS nodes.
You can furthermore configure up to 30 additional tool ROMs (such as Utopia, Maxam, Protext..) in the cartridges (compatible with ParaDOS and Burnin' Rubber) without requiring a real ROM board.
The tool also let you automatically download the latest UniDOS ROMs from the official web site.
- AmigaOS and MorphOS version are requiring AmiSSL version 4
- Windows 32 bits version is compatible with Linux (through Wine).
