I have this piece. I've just been extremely busy this week. Feel free to PM me and nag me about it. I will get these dimensions for you.

I assume no one has this card with the back plate, or just can't be bothered to measure it. So I started going some rough measurements my self, and some guessing. Made a test in cardboard and seems I got really close. Will do some adjustments and make a new test after the weekend. I'll share the dxf file when I'm done, if anyone else wants to make one.

Current progress:

Very easy.
1.  Make a folder on your main boot partition called DIVEON.
2.  Then use COPYALL to copy all the files to the directory.
3.  Edit the DIVE_ON.CFG file and change the final "dip-switch" from 0 to 1 to tell the game you are playing off HDD.
4.  Edit the Autoexec.bat and add a SUBST A: A:\Games\DIVEON  (The game expects to be on the root of the drive, so use this if you want to put it in a "Games" folder)
5.  Run the Autoexec.bat to play the game.
6.  To save some space you can delete the DISKCOPY.X and DC.Bat files.

Note, this game uses 2HDE (9-sector 1.44MB) disk format in order to squeeze all the data on a single disk.
On system boot, the 2HDEIPL is activated and the format can be read.  However Human68K does not have native support for 9-sector formats.  So you will need to load the 9SCSET driver before you can access the files.

Finally picked this one up.  It actually includes a new version of the game that is meant to be harder.  You don't start with the options anymore, you get them when you pickup a shield powerup.  It's a bit more intense and the superior version overall, but gameplay was never Dive On's strong point.  Worth picking up for the cheap price.

SIG X68000 / SX-68M-2 MIDI back cover dimensions

Hi!

I'm soon a new owner of a X68000 computer system. The machine comes with a MIDI card (System Sacom SX-68M-2), but it is missing the cover plate that goes over the slot. The one in this picture:


Does anyone own this piece and can use some calipers to give me the exact dimensions of it so I can reproduce this part? I want the various lengts of the cutouts and where the holes are located, and the diameters of the holes. Also want the distance of the holde edges from one of the edges. Even better if it can be put into a dxf file, but not necessary.

Made this crude paint drawing to illustrate what I want measured.

Try tapping the different boards with something nonconductive to locate the problem. The dropouts will get worse the closer you get to the problems.

Funny that it's indeed the red color the loose one, I'll try again a resoldering with a hot air gun, thanks for the tip!

Yep, indeed, I still have high hopes of finding someone that can take a peek inside his X68000 or maybe, a Xellent accelerator resting over his desk :)

For rare and unusual Japanese hardware such things are very rarely found.
