You're right using WinUAE with an ECS Agnus and an ECS Denise together have the correct result.

Is an ECS Denise an easy drop-in replacement for the OCS Denise on an A500 rev 6A?
Does having a ECS Denise introduce different compatibility problems?

(Sorry kaffer I wasn't expecting to pollute this thread!)

Finally got the time to setup a gotek for my A500 with FlashFloppy. Looks great! Hope you are still considering the OSD option...

Question: Is there a way to boot with a specific slot from the (HxC) image-selector program? I only achieve it to reboot with slot 1 selected, requiring me to manually browse to the correct slot

Oh and is there a way with HXCFEMNG to also (clearly) list the empty slots when getting them from the config, so I can easily fill them in a text editor? Now it simply does not include them in the getslots result if I'm not mistaken.

Other option won't work: HxCEdit crashes for me. Never mind, FF-HxC Editor does work

Key F7 should do this.

FlashFloppy TestBed now Open Source!

https://github.com/keirf/FF_TestBed/wiki

This is the testbed I use to validate FlashFloppy releases and now I put the capability into the hands of suitably advanced users, to validate their Gotek and USB-drive hardware!

I will be continuing development of the testbed to provide ever clearer performance metrics for firmware tuning, and for competitive benchmarks that everyone can reproduce and validate!

Via the power of the "STM32 Blue Pill" it is now possible to send the FlashFloppy display to the Amiga's monitor (On Screen Display), and to control the Gotek buttons via the Amiga's keyboard.

This makes a fully embedded installation of FlashFloppy, and no case cutting or 3d-printed addons, a serious proposition!

See the FF OSD project wiki for more details: https://github.com/keirf/FF_OSD/wiki
