The trick is to enjoy what you do (cough cough Agnus) and f**k the detractors, they offer nothing but salt.
The path to happiness is filled with dicks that need to be ignored.
There is a potential plan for the ReAgnus by handing it to someone else. But I do not want to put that person in the spotlight or under pressure else it will definitely not happen.

Thanks all.. If anyone is interested one of the Scottish Amiga guys has reviewed the TF1260.... and compared it to a well known and controversial card.
Nice review, love the TF1260. :dualthumbup:

Good news on the ReAgnus, hopefully this will see the light at some point!
i'm sure there are more than enough people who would like to contribute if that is an option.

You have given so much to us in the hobbyist community. I've now built, repaired and upgraded a few of your cards for me and others locally and it has been a lot of fun.

Whilst I don't think I'll get into the 060 game any time soon (I'm having too much fun with the 030 stuff), it does look awesome! I look forward to seeing where ReAgnus goes, and maybe building a few for myself if whoever takes it on makes the PCBs available to buy.

Thanks for everything so far and I wish you a much better 2021.

So what are your plans for 2021?
Survive and move house :). But in all seriousness I have no more boards planned. All the boards I ever wanted to make exist now.

Maybe some tweaks to existing ones.
Have you considered some sort of release (we all know that open source if off the table) of any of above cards or updated version of them in the future? For example controlled by you builds by people like chucky or supaduper with read protected firmware?

TF4060... never.. was just a plaything.
TF1260... local user group only.. built by me with unique serial numbers in firmware.
TF360... probably not.

The main issue is that it will need support for games etc that are not working and I just dont want to do that ever again.

I like the sound of "probably" :D

I wasn't aware that people actually do expect 100% compatibility from your cards :/
