Just noticed that you copied the dll into Windows\System32.
This was not necessary, you only need it in the folder containing Altair.
Suggest you remove from Windows\System32

See my Edit earlier Shocked

Its great to know people are here on Xmas Eve ready to help out.

My brother has watched Zulu over 50 times (and that was 5 years ago). From what I remember, it always has the same ending!

It has been suggested that selecting a menu that kills the picture and sound before beginning the transfer can also speed it up. Although I haven't timed it, it does seem faster.

I've just added the U and Uu patches to both my Toppies and got a huge speed increase in transfer rates.

I'm going to have to test more to check my figures aren't wrong but I used to get 2.44MB/s (might have been higher), now I'm getting at least 4.18MB/s.

I tested using a 1GB file. It took around 7 minutes without the patches, it's now around 4 minutes.

This is running it in Turbo Mode. When not in Turbo Mode, the 1GB file transfers in around 7 minutes.

I can't believe I waited this long to test these patches, IMO they are essential.

USB Upload Accelerator + MacTF?

Hi, I'm trying to increase my upload speed using the TAPs in PatchPack. I installed usb_upload.TAP into Program Files and ran it on my Toppy. I then tried uploading a 1 Gbyte file with MacTF in Turbo mode. The transfer speed was not obviously different from without usb_upload. About 12 mins for 1 Gbyte = 1.4 Mbyte/sec, so about the same as before.

Questions:-
- what kind of improvement to upload speed could I expect to see?
- did I do anything wrong?
- do I need to run both TAPs to get just an upload improvement?
- there are some comments about "special" settings for MacTF. Not clear what these might be?

thanks in advance

I've answered some of my own questions
- about 40% improvement
- just the upload TAP (I'm using the TAP so far, not the patch)
- it doesn't seem to work with MacTF. Works fine with Altair and the new .dll though.

I would still have expected the [U] patch to have shown an effect when transferring files to the Mac.

The accelerator patches work by disabling software CRC checking when transmitting data [U] from the toppy or sending data [Uu] to the toppy. These patches only disable the CRC checks on the toppy end - you also need to make the host computer aware that CRC checks should not be performed. For windows, this is done by using a modified DLL. I've no idea what happens on the mac - it may be there is no such modification or it may be that the modification has always been present. This may explain why you saw no change in performance.

I don't use MacTF but MPEG Streamclip on the Mac does support USB acceleration.

MPEGStreamClip is nicer and more stable as well. The only thing I miss from MacTF is drag and drop. Thanks.

just found out about these patches. Have questions: - Altair wont run on my W10 laptop so I use Antatres. Will these patches speed up transfers with Antares, ot are they solely for Altair?
