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...
Dodano po 7 [godziny] 23 [minuty]:
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!
