I've got an x68030 with some VGA gremlins I'm trying to debug.

I have a x68000 as well, and the boards look fairly similar (though the 000 has an RCA output the 030 is lacking). Is it safe to swap these boards temporarily? I'm trying to determine whether the fault is with the daughter board a problem upstream on the main board.

X68000 Software / Installing Star Cruiser to Har...

Following the release of the fantastic English translation of Star Cruiser: https://nebulous.group/index.php/projects/translations/star-cruiser-x68000/

I decided I would try and do a Hard Drive install as constantly swapping disks to save the game was a real pain!

I used this guide: https://gamesx.com/wiki/doku.php?id=x68000:installing_games_to_hard_drive
which worked a treat. However, when it came to saving the game, I experienced the exact same problem of having to use floppies. This negated the reason for the Hard Drive install.

Is there any solution to this (i.e. save games to Hard Drive)? Or at least be able to save to the Floppy User Disk without having to reinsert disk 2 straight after?

The way it is, you are constantly swapping between Disk 2 and User Disk (in Floppy Drive 1) every time you want to save or load a game.  It spoils the experience IMO

OK, so coming back to the FDX68, when I understand it correctly, on my ACE this would only make sense for playing multi disk games if I also jumper the internal drives to C & D.

Im not a SxSI expert but don't think it should make a difference. The external and internal port are both connected to the same port on the motherboard so they are essentially the same to the machine.

I have a working ACE with internal SCSI2SD. Question: when I want to migrate that to an external solution, do I just need the appropriate hardware (mainly cables) and connect everything and will it work? Or do I have to do all the master bootdisk, bootset.x and switch.x editing again as per tutorial https://gamesx.com/wiki/doku.php?id=x68000:installing_scsi2sd_on_x68000_externally? I'd assume that's all already in place for the internal setup and will continue working? I couldn't spot any differences in setup/parameters. Thanks!

I don't think Lagoon is HD installable unfortunately.

I just wrote the images to disk and found the game very enjoyable!

I'm hoping that more games like this will be translated to English...

Thought I'd 'bump' this thread for those who are not aware that the English translation was released on 9th June 2019.

It's fantastic and enabled me to complete the game this week!
