Those poor poor souls. I hope they still have hair left after the weekend, :D
Depends if you guys bend any of the pins or not ;)

Guinea pig no.2 checking in.

The cup goes in really easy once the pins are lined up. And the spacer makes the whole thing sit with about 2mm of cpu pin showing between the socket and the booster board.

I'm assembling the fast rom board next.

On the booster can I presume that sw is the speed select like on the previous version? Also with ce going to the fast rom board as before?

One final question for now at least, where does the small resistor go? Would say the value but I've forgotten what gold is

Yes.

In series with CE line to booster...

Cool, all assembled, ready for some testing

I was testing Franks blitter demo and noticed something odd when the blitter is enabled...

It looks like the background isn't be cleared/restored :shrug:

When in 8MHz mode, or using CPU render, it is all fine.. so something is tripping up somewhere :roll:

So not sure if I've done something daft but..

The STe gas been running fine but the GB6 results just look like that of a standard STe.
I'm running tos2.06 , the ce wire is connected to ce pin on fast rom board with resistor in between and sw has nothing connected.

Have I forgotten to do something?

As long as you did not connect SW to GND (it enables 8MHz mode).. nothing else to it...

You did remove the old CPU (only other thing I can think of)

Yeah the old cpu is sat on the table as we speak.

The floppy drive is touching the socket for the rom but I have taped that and will bin the floppy for a gotek eventually. Could it be the ce wire?

And as I said, sw has nothing connected to it.

GB figures attached.

odd.. check pin 1 of the GAL make sure you have 40MHz there... I did test the boosters before I sent them out, so no idea why its stuck in 8MHz mode unless the osc has died. :shrug:

Mine should be going in tonight, so I'll report back on here when done.
