Not sure why they showing up on D: :shrug: But thanks to Atarian Computing for that bit of black magic voodoo!


I'm not having much luck with YAART though :(


EDIT:

OK I ballsed up one of the jumper links locations on the PCB.. I put a selection jumper on the ST side on A15 not the ROM side :roll: Onto V9 then... :roll:

V9 done.

I've moved the "6" in "GEMBENCH 6" closer as it looked like "60" because of the jumper hole :lol: and now looking at the image it seems to have moved to somewhere I didn't put it :roll:

Fixed the jumper link fekup.

Also changed the cap from 5mm to 2.5mm as 5mm caps in the size I want seem hard to find :roll: But more choice in 2.5mm.. Anyway, its swapped now.

So they now in the basket awaiting for me to punch send on the current pcb orders...

V9 Built and tested fine finally!

Will start collecting parts to build up a batch of these to add to my store over the next couple of weeks or so...

Very Nice Exxos.. any idea on pricing yet?

I might have missed it if it was early in the thread.

No price worked out yet. I need to see how much they will cost to assemble first. Maybe around 25 at a guess.

Started making up a few more... 2 are spoken for, one which will go off to the assembly place for them to copy at some point, and the fourth in case one doesn't work :lol:

I'm sure the rework station isn't supposed to be used in this way.. #dontcare

Make sure your image is 300dpi if you're printing stickers.
