Just to let everyone know, I have moved myself from row 4 to row 20. I've had a baby recently and during the next few months won't have much time for retro computing related activities. Therefore, I am willing to give up my spot and let someone else do all the testing that keropi is asking for.

btw, testing is not really needed at this point - just play old games and enjoy :D

Thanks everyone. My 4 year old daughter is already into retro computers. She's been helping me restore an old AT keyboard recently by cleaning all the keys one by one.
She's also quite handy with a screwdriver. I'm very proud of her ;]

That's amazing, dude. I started to be interested in working on computers when I was 3.5 years old. I took apart the family 486 computer at that time, and that's what sparked my interest. I do have an impressive collection of computers and electronics (see my signature). The best score was the Packard Bell Pack-Mate 28 Plus. That, and upgrading my Windows 98SE machine from the K6-2/300 to a Socket 370 (VIA C3 700A) ATX system for more game support, and AGP GPUs (1x/2x/4x).

Going to use my K6-2/300 as a backup MS-DOS machine or for my C64 after I re-brick the PSU for games and stuff.

There is a Google Docs document sheet linked in this thread for that. Just look a few pages back.

Still testing and improving - most delays is for parts to arrive. One component needed replacing in order to improve further compatibility ... I don't want to sell something that could have potential issues that will lead to unpleasantness. Also the package with the brackets is getting delayed because for no reason at all it is travelling from Germany->Greece via road means. I don't know if this is some new weird security case (brackets look weird in x-ray?) but it's not coming airmail... :|

I know this is taking way longer than expected and I am sorry for that... :(

Not sure if anyone asked this question yet, but will your card work properly with a PSU that does not have a -5V rail?

Odd, I've had a lot of cards with brackets coming from the states and if there's no issue there I don't think anybody else would have it :)

Keep up the good work :)

Withdrew my interest since I got a sound card lot from Amibay (PeterNY) that has the WaveTable header with the Yamaha DB50XG. Thanks though.

Even if it doesn't, you can get an adapter that adds -5v to a PSU that doesn't provide -5v.

Just an update since I've got a couple of PMs about the delay - yes we still work on the mpu and currently investigating some daughterboard reset issues. One would think this is a simple task and in paper it is BUT there are a bazillion boards out there and they don't always play nice. The original Z8 firmware/code is left intact - external modules work 101% like in the previous version so nothing changed in that regard. It's just more bad luck I guess... :dead:

Thanks for the update! I feel that making the board as good as possible is very important! So I would say take all the time you need (and can spare).

I am interested in buying a card. Are there any that are not reserved, or are all taken?

EDIT: Found the Google docs link :)
