Gotek - Fast loading?

Will it ever be possible for Gotek drives to offer a turbo load feature similar to UAE?

Unlikely, as they are connected through the standard floppy interface on real hardware, and that's where the bottleneck is.

That's what I suspected. Figured if it was possible it would have happened by now.

You can probably tweak trackdisk.device step/settle delays to be quite small with the gotek, but that's as turbo as you'll get. :-)
