The version I am using was made especially for the master.

The are 2 ROMs, one for the BBC B ETC and one for the master
Oh, I stand corrected. Was it officially released for the Master? Can you post the ROM image?

That did the trick! Now you can see I was able to load Watford DDFS
But it'll never work in a Master, it was intended for use on a B only. It's expecting to find a 1770 at &FE80 but in a Master this is mapped to &FE28. You'd need to extensively modify the ROM to make it Master compatible.

I don't get any loaded automatically either - I get one row of solid red and one of solid white. Looks like you have to go to the I/O menu and load patterns by hand. Yep, page 13 of manual states first use of IO menu should be to load the default brushes and patterns from the supplied utilities disc.

This sounds incredible. I agree a Mode2 version would be preferable as Videonula is not emulated (to my understanding ) for one.
b-em and b2 emulate the VideoNULA (as I found out in another thread).
Latest MAME 0.222 supports the VideoNuLa palette too.

There is a patched version of Watford DDFS 1.54T for the BBC master, which is particularly useful as it enables 720kb DDFS discs :) but you need to use the patched version, not the BBC B version.
Wasn't aware of this, is it an official Watford release?

Watford DFS, all versions, will not work in a Master. It's intended for a model B only as it requires a 8271 controller, whereas the Master has a 1770.
