EmuTOS does work. And has great support for the 030. But the 192K ROM has hardly any features... it doesnt have a desktop last time i looked.

Just had a thought that my SEC booster without the CPU is what would be needed for 206 decoding. If I literally ripped the CPU off the board I wouldn't have to design anything or do new firmware as its all ready been done.

I was going to PM you something similar later on but well, you've just mentioned it.

that strange, EmuTOS 192K is a full equivalent of TOS 1.04 and definitely has the Destkop from the beginning.

I half remember something similar as well. Someone needs to burn the latest emutos for a stfm and see what's what.

I have had emutos running myself, but it was with 206 decoding and I don't know what space it uses.

Or if Vince is reading then let us know...

I just tried the latest 192K rom on Hatari.. its got a desktop.

It most definitely didn't used to. Maybe @BlankVector can explain the timeline.

No huge rush for a TOS 206 board then really as emutos supports other CPUs anyway.

Agreed. TBH EmuTOS is really the preferred option for an upgraded CPU.

Just checked through the release notes....

Until version 0.9.1 EmuTOS 192K ROM had the "limited" desktop (I call this the no desktop) where it just opened up drive A and B in two fixed size windows with no menus.

Due to size limitations, the 192 kB ROMs contains:
- no EmuCON
- a minimal desktop using 2 fixed windows

As of 0.9.1 this restriction was lifted.

So just a coupl of 32 couple adaptors and some 27c010s for the roms or something like your rom board required then exxos?
