Greets. New user of x68K PRO here. I got it working off of YAJ on a lark. Seems to work 100% but the unit is a bit worse for wear. I don't think it was treated too nicely in shipping. (A printer connector tab was mercilously cracked! And the bottom from corner seems to be smushed in.) Oh well.
I've done my best to soak up knowledge/try to figure things out, but I have a few questions:
1) External floppy drive usage. Before I had access to HD Floppies, I wired up a Gotek Hxc to the external floppy connector. I was surprised that it actually worked. However, only a selection of the games (I limited to 1 disk only games) loaded. For example, Gradius brought up a desktop, not the game. Are x68k games sensitive to floppy drive ID/location? As I recall, with Amiga for example, lots of software expected to be loaded from drive 0 or whatever the first one is.
2) Memory Expansion. I'm content to use floppies for the time being, so 2MB should allow me to run most things. However, 1MB expansion boards seem to be rare as heck. I haven't seen one on YAJ in the last month or so. Is there another source out there for these things (modern homebrew? any store that specializes that I haven't found?)
3) Tips for the new user? I'm trying to keep things cheap. (ha!) I bought a loose x68k, am using an MSX gamepad, hacked up a video cable to hook to a monitor, have an old PC to write disks. I figure I'm probably looking at buying a Keyboard adapter for sure, because I don't trust myself to build one. But a mouse though? Can you hack/mod a PS2 or USB or serial? Or are the signals just too different?
