would be cool to have a new STE motherboard which fits in short 520 ST case
Once the ST remake is done, stuff like jag ports and DMA sound can be added easy enough, pretty much will be a STE by the time its done. But needs to be large to have room for the addon ports.

Re: re-Amiga 1200

There does seem to be a fair few "remake" projects about in recent years :) I think as prices have dropped with PCBs in recent times, its opening up new possibilities for things. Of course now we can do custom logic chips for like £5, we can build in all the mods we always wanted :)

Re: re-Amiga 1200

Is that the chucky terrible fire sometimes mentions?

Why don't people create the schematics and do a new board ? A lot easier to make circuit changes and mods then. If I copied the STE, id copy DMA issues along with it.. I'm all for starting over.

CODING CHALLENGE #1

A simple routine to get things moving.

Write a simple routine which will move either a sprite, bob, joey etc, in a square in low resolution with a 100pixel movement in each direction.

Just wondering what the voltage rating is for things like capacitors on the new board? 25v?
Think there is only 3 caps which are electrolytic and 16v... Most caps are all ceramic now and normally 50+ volts. I've not looked into it.. No need.

So as you don’t like soldering, will you be selling the new “red” psu in a kit form?

Just being hopeful....
I'm farming off soldering work to a UK company now.. Increases costs but I don't have time to keep building things up anyway. I wrote a lot about that elsewhere..
