I am almost ready to release the boards, once i am done finalizing them i will release the boards. i redesigned my old gotek design with pin headers so it can be connected to the keyboards/adapters to enable the advanced gotek features (OSD, eject, up/down etc), no soldering needed. i notice that there is a new OSD update for the HXC core. the nice thing about the romulator and the OSD is you can easily see the listing while in the romulator menu.
Ahhh, quite nice!

I have a Gotek in df1: - have been thinking about another Gotek for df0: but then I need to get another external drive so that I have access to real floppies.

Cool. Don't mind ordering from the US but would make more sense to get it from Europe :-)

It's a rev 6a MB with a 1MB Fat agnus. I am hoping to populate the empty RAM slots - just waiting for parts.

I thought about 880 KB of data from a floppy and a minimal Kickstart 1.2/1.3 - a full floppy would leave about 140 KB for a cut-down version of Kickstart 1.3. It should be possible to find 116 KB to ditch from the ROM.
