Here is the preview of the case. This is not final design. Now I am implementing some improvements suggested by Piotr.
We are days away from production. Any preference in terms of colour and finish for the case?
Btw, site https://www.diy-a586.com is progressing well. I will expedite development so we can have one place where people can get support, license keys, claim warranty if needed and finally purchase boards, cases, power supplyes etc..
Perhaps getting healty stock of PS/2 keyboards and mouses is not a bad idea. Also we will try to keep prices lowest possible so everyone can afford assembled boards.
Since board is "open design" we will also make sure everything is available as DIY kit - Case design, component locator, software, precise component specs etc...
I made one of the copies with something like that. Height 47mm. I just need to print the sides. From a piece of laminate I made a board connecting the floppy disk drive with the "motherboard". Brass threaded spacers are soldered to the laminate. 3D printed bottom.
I am trying to run two floppy drives but cannot. Did you manage to run two? I have two pc stations converted, one df1 and the other df0 and a crossover cable for Amiga. However, ndos the game sees the DF1 station, it cannot read floppy disk number 2, but tries to read and that's it. Workbench cannot see the df1 drive and boot menu. Xcopy only blinks LED and that's it. Please help. Thank you. greetings
The mating itself with 2 real stations will not do anything. You need a second engine signal and a slightly modified core. There are 2 options: - External signal latches / MTR0 / MTR1. - / MTR1 instead of the / INDEX signal What you choose?
I don't have 2 Amiga stations and the emulator I have doesn't require changing the connections, so I didn't make the cable. You crossed the wires (4,6) that are not connected. Take a look at the diagram I have posted.
I was able to connect the DF0 and gotek DF1 stations and everything works except for the FF program for gotek. After its launch, there is only a blank screen. Works fine on Amiga 500. I am using flash floppy 3.22 do you have any idea what could be causing this? However, the problem of the two stations is caused by the reworking of the stations, because even one of mine had a problem with goth. Someday I will make more attempts ?
