That is really sweet! Can't wait to get one!

BTW, may I ask what diagnostics program you're using?

Cheers! That's Keir Fraser's Systest, and rather excellent it is too. You can download an ADF and it literally takes 3 seconds to load.

Thanks for the link and the awesome work Rob!

And for your next work of magic.... could you whip up a Zorro 2 to PCMCIA adapter?

Argh, I've got too many other projects on the go these days, and that's another one you've put in my head Oh well, it's on the list now - no promises though! If my clockports Zorro-II adaptor works, a PCMCIA one shouldn't be substantially different. We shall see...

Cheers

Just tested it with an A2090 hard drive controller... And it booted first go That's me out of Zorro cards to test with it for the moment unless I can borrow some others from anyone...

Will assemble the rest of the cards anyway and have a look at getting them to people.

Hi Daedalus,

I have allready done a ZII-Adapter and you can find all files in German here:

http://www.a1k.org/forum/showthread.php?t=50215

You can order diy-kits here: http://www.a1k.org/forum/showthread.php?t=55852 (registration and some posts required - approx 15€ with parts)

Keyfeatures:

Pass-through for the expansion port with working Autoconfig-chain

Adding missing signals

Optional external power-supply: A floppy-power cord can be pluged in and a relay-switch detects if it is connected an the amiga is switched on.

Missing features:

Supports only one DMA card (There is simply no buster-chip)
unbuffered busses

Just for your information. You can use my files for inspiration...

Best regards Matthias

Ooh, interesting! I didn't know anything about that... It's a shame projects on the German forums rarely become visible on the English-speaking forums, it would probably help you sell many more items as well as eliminating issues like duplicated development work.

My German is quite rusty so I'm going on Google Translate, but I can't register on A1K for the moment due to holidays it seems. I'll register when I can and have a proper look. Thanks for the offer, it sounds like we've ended up in almost exactly the same place

Well, I don't have any sidecar peripherals available to test the passthrough with, in particular an ACA500, so I was hoping to test that first before I send them out. I'll keep you posted!

It's in the post. I may have gone overboard on the packaging. If a cubic metre of bubble wrap appears on your doorstep, that's it.
