'Fat tracks in emulation'

Hi Rixa,

I can't speak about the 1541u's emulation because I can't afford one currently. However, when written back out to disk, it only goes through the protection check once, of course, 34,34.5,35, then the game starts.

I can't write that out to disk aligned perfectly (even with an index hole, it's still off a little) so that wouldn't be the same data, but it still passes on the real 1541. There was no such device in the 80's (or ever, probably) that could actually write a "fat" track- this is just two tracks with a known skew between them (0 in this case) .

I think it is just measuring the time between sectors when switching tracks from 34-35 and that must not be quite right with the 1541u.
