Brought to you by Left Turn Only, the LTO Flash! delivers the most advanced cartridge technology available for the Intellivision to date!
The LTO Flash! User Interface Software by INTV Funhouse provides an easy-to-use application to manage the contents of your

Even if you do not yet own a LTO Flash!, the LTO Flash! User Interface Software (LUI) still offers
useful tools to keep track of your ROMs. Because it is expandable, LUI's capabilities will grow. At this time, the high-level features

Mac Users Note
The automatic prompt to install MONO for Mac is downloading an incompatible version of MonoMac! On September 14, 2016, it appears the
prompt to install Mono was redirected to a version that does not work correctly! This problem is being investigated. In the meantime:
BEFORE LAUNCHING THE SOFTWARE FOR THE FIRST TIME: download
MonoMac from this link.
Run the installer first, then the LTO Flash! User Interface Software will work correctly.
You can view the documentation for most recent release of LUI here:
In most cases, Windows will automatically install the drivers for your LTO Flash!. In the uncommon circumstance
when this is not the case, you can install the latest FTDI drivers from FTDI's web site.
For MacOS X 10.9 and later, we recommend using the native FTDI drivers Apple provides with MacOS X.
For MacOS X 10.7 and 10.8, install the latest FTDI drivers from FTDI's web site if necessary.
FTDI's drivers have minor stability issues unrelated to LTO Flash! We recommend using the Disconnect button before unplugging your
LTO Flash! to avoid an unexpected reboot of your Mac.
||[All] Added jzIntv launcher!
[All] Modified keyboard shortcuts for Intellicart commands.
[All] Fixed bug in ROM comparison when one or both files were missing.
[All] Fixed crash when deleting all ROMs in ROM list. (embarrassing)
[Mac] Address a rare crash during drag and drop.
[Windows,Source] Refactored visual creation for ribbon and menu commands.
||[All] Add sort by name feature menu layout. Use it via context menu (right click).
[All] ROM list will indicate difference between a missing ROM that has a backup copy, and one that's simply missing.
[All] Addressed potential crash in cases in which device driver software was not properly or only partially installed.
[All] Error reports now include firmware version information if possible.
[All] Crash reports attempt to include CLR version number. (Thanks, MonoMac, for foisting a TOTALLY BROKEN update! :P )
[All] Added additional data to device command communication logger. This may prove too verbose for large data transfer commands.
[All] Address an inconsistently recurring crash for some cases in which checking file system on brand new LTO Flash! caused a crash in the UI if files in menu / ROM list were missing.
[All] Embedded Firmware Update data will be extracted regardless of the 'prompt for firmware update' setting.
[All] Made helper to "safely" delete files. Nearly all cases of deletion are to remove temporary backup files. One user encountered a case in which saving menu layout would crash because the backup copy was still "in use". Suspect that write cache on laptop was slow enough that it just so happened that the actual file write of the backup copy was happening when the save finished and the backup was being deleted.
[All,Source] Clean up an internal tech debt on how to deal with multiple entrants to handle double-click on a ROM in the ROM list.
[All,Source] Refactored some of RunExternalProgram to be more flexible.
[All,Source] Small tweaks again to MEF composition, to make more resilient.
[All,Source] Don't hit Composition system when we don't have a good reason. Some command CanExecute handlers should now run faster.
[Mac] Fixed typo in .dmg background image. How embarrassing!
[Mac] Fixed a display issue w/ displaying paths in the Mac preferences dialog. Paths should show purdy icons now.
[Mac] Newer versions of Mac OS X (10.10 and newer) do not like Boolean values in info.plist for Environment settings. Changed to strings instead.
[Mac] Fix case when unhandled domain exception event handler was called from a non-UI thread. When that happened, it caused the error reporter to crash.
[Mac,Source] Massive prep work for Xamarin.Mac port! Going to try to keep the ability to build MonoMac version alive for awhile... The .designer files aren't touched yet - that's going to be fun! Also, in a massive over-abundance of caution, culled "using System;" from most Mac.cs files. This is probably unnecessary, as I suspect type name collisions between MonoMac.Foundation and others are more likely to be in Composition-related namespaces than System... (ExportAttribute, I'm looking at you).
[Mac,Source] Added helper function to test if a file path is actually URL string. Also some prep work for the big port to Xamarin.Mac.
[Windows] Vertical scroll when dragging an item.
[Windows,Source] Added makefile project to zip up installers into version file.
||[All] New firmware update for beta testers.
[All] Add minimum file size check for firmware update.
[All] Firmware update validation in UI more fault tolerant.
[All] Update support tools with latest features.
[All] Fixed a dumb, old bug - double-quoted file name argument when calling utility programs.
[All] Reword text in some error messages.
[All] Simplify warning messages in standard mode. (Gory details remain in detailed error report mode.)
[All] UI more tolerant of totally insane, corrupted file systems. (Joe, your test suite is simply murderous!)
[All] Improve behavior of copying to LTO Flash! if source files (manuals, ROMs) are missing on PC, but still in menu.
[Mac] Small splash screen tweak.
[Mac] Added mechanism to disable multi-select in menu editor via info.plist just in case there's something really busted. Hope to never need it.
[Source] Fix a build warning (unused variable).
[Source] Tidy up some enum member documentation (more compact).
||[All] Includes a firmware update for beta testers who may not have updated to the latest firmware.
[All] Fixed some typos in user-facing messages.
[Mac] Added multi-select to menu layout editor. Sorry, Windows users. Not yet.
[Mac] Added some defensive code for two one-time-only bug reports. These have not been reproduced in the field, nor in the debugger.
[Windows] Fixed an issue where trying to view a "manual" that was a file type that the OS didn't know how to open would report a fatal error. Instead, just report "could not open" and move on.
[Source] Update some internal documentation.
||Inaugural patch! Fixes stack overflow and other less severe issues.
||Initial public release.
