Re: True discussion MegaSTE vs MEGA with Pak68 et al

I, along with quite a few other people, wish someone would do a new
run of these amazing boards. I'd like to see a new run and with today's
modern technology, miniaturized as much as possible.

As is, the board has a rather large footprint.

I did post them publicly online. I don't remember Holger (Pakman) ever telling me not to so.... :)

The german pak020 ROMs I had I think verified as normal german ROM's. I swapped them to English IIRC. RJ had my pak020 so maybe he can...

Re: True discussion MegaSTE vs MEGA with Pak68 et al

There's a discussion currently at the German forum about the mainboard boot roms needed for non-German TOS versions when using the PAK. Can anyone comment on what they are using for the boot roms in their systems? Are you using them at all or does it just work with the existing mainboard roms? Are ...

Re: True discussion MegaSTE vs MEGA with Pak68 et al

Agreed - the Pak boards are rarer than proverbial hens' teeth. :) That being said, as far as sheer power goes, a fully decked out Pak setup will blow a stock Mega STe away. BUT...as many people will be quick to point out, and rightfully so, you will not get all the audio/video bonuses that a Mega ST...
