I don't use gotek. I checked a few years ago on a borrowed one, but it was with HxC firmware.
From what I can see FFmanager gives a dark blue screen. No bug just hanging. The LED from the flop is not on, so the error is probably somewhere else. I can't think of anything. Are FFmanager sources available to see what and how?
Sorry for the badly worded question. What I meant was how do you switch from the Amiga emulation to the IBM PC emulation? (same question would apply to coin-operated arcade game emulation, etc.)
From what I have read elsewhere, the PC emulation is fairly limited, giving performance of the early 486 era (25MHz). Would the PC emulation emulate VGA graphics at 640x480 (and lower modes?)
With respect to the Amiga monitor modes, I must assume that modern HDMI monitors simply adapt to whatever signal is present and this disguises the actual resolution being displayed. In the case of the older Dell display, it must be a simple issue of it not receiving a signal in the range it requires. The "print screen" key may work, I'll try it...

FYI, only one out of three 4:3 LCD monitors I've tested worked properly with the Amiga configuration ("print screen" had no effect, it adds borders in some cases)
In this image, the Lenovo 15" monitor will display an image, but the "Input signal out of range" message cannot be suppressed. A Dell monitor was blank with the same message and a Viewsonic 17" monitor seemed to work OK.
With respect to the "print screen" resolution chocies, which one is the default and what is the sequence when you press the key? (seems to loop after two presses...)
Just a FYI for those that might be trying to use original Amiga floppy drives, or "old" PC 720k drives.
Really old (non 1.44MB) 3.5" floppy drives actually used the +12V power that was part of the original ATX standard. The Amiga 500 uses a full 4-pin cable and supplies 12V on that floppy power pin. My rev. 5 Amiga 500 had a Chinon drive that clearly uses the 12V power and thus will not work on the A586 board, without external 12V power.
The same goes for an original Amiga 1000 drive; it will make "seek" noises when the board tries to access the floppy, but the motor does not turn.
Here's a "fix": most older external PC/Mac hard disk drives used a combined 12V/5V power supply, so I just hacked one to supply 12V/5V to the Amiga 1000 floppy and 5V to the A586. Works great!
Big Kudos to Piotr for having the foresight to include a separate power-input jack! Hacking a USB-C cable would have been just an extra hassle!
I ended my cooperation with Ranko Rodic, so probably never. We agreed on a specific amount, after selling x pieces, I found out that I would not get that much. Why? I haven't been able to find out. As you can see, he deleted the account. People are not serious.
Hope there is no newer version than v1.6
There is no. :)
All subsequent programs can be made from the SD card.
Is it based on the Minimig Core?
I just finished soldering the DF0 / 1 splitter on the PIC16F15313 as a motor signal latch. I gave the PIC instead of the 74xx because of the dimensions.

Yes, that's stupid if it doesn't pay off. What did a complete board or set cost?

The floppy adapter is really cool! The video is not public and not in your playlist, was that on purpose?
The AS4C4M16SA-5TCN is hard to come by. Do you think that an AS4C4M16SA-6TCN would also work?
