Very nifty I must say! :)

It would have handy to have a diag rom image available when needed.

Oh, and yes to the 32 bit version for the 1200 and 3000! :)

It may be that there is an issue with one of the CIA chips, specifically the "even" CIA. Try swapping the two CIA chips around to see if that makes any difference.

I would suggest trying the A500 PSU with the A1200. If the PSU for the A1200 has gotten weak over the years, the A1200 won't work properly, especially with the 1240 card in.

When I left high school in '86, my school had 3 Amigas for their art and design classes. My A1200 and one of my A3000's came from a university where they were used for audio and video work.

There are probably some images out there, especially with the Win-UAE folks. Though HstWB does look interesting.

Another thought would be that you could set up your own a CF image using Win-UAE.
