SIG X68000 / FDX68 Problems
Last post by X-Col - June 06, 2020, 07:52:20 pm
I bought the FDX68 a while ago as a kit and recently assembled it.

It works very well but it isn't perfect.

I'm wondering if the emulation software still needs tweaking or I have done something wrong with assembly.

Some examples:
-Both disks being ejected when only one should (Akumajou Dracula ejects both disks when finished loading instead of just disk 0, same with Lagoon when it supposed to just eject disk 0)
-Naious randomly asking to insert disk when it is already inserted, some others do the same
-Ys 2 Ancient Ys Vanished doesn't load (something about disk b in Japanese), it loads if I overclock my X68000 but then the sound is garbled
-Aquales not saving progress

Out of the small number of disks I have tried, a large percentage have issues.

I can't find any info on the web out there with others having these issues, which leads me to believe there is something wrong with my FDX68 unit. I've inspected it closely but everything looks fine (no bridged solder joints etc).

Can anyone share their experience with this floppy emulator?

I would ask Gimons himself but I'm not on Twitter.

Do you have the configuration details for the XSIMM10ss? Is it the same as the earlier XSIMM10 (the fact it has the pair of 72pin simm sockets has me unconvinced).

Hi guys!

Here is the next project of Mr. Gimons (XM6, raSCSI, FDX68):


- 10 MB;
- Midi;
- Mercury Unit V4;
- Raspberry PI port (raSCSI and FDX68 integrated?)

There is also an USB port on the board (Nereid?)

I wanted to give a quick update on this. As you may have seen, Midiori is now available at BEEP:


This is an updated version that features a mini-DIN connector and adapter in the box.

I still plan to sell them on the forum as well, however I am currently super backlogged. I'm working on increasing my production rate so I can have a stock on hand rather than building them as I ship as I've done previously.

If you're using Chrome, there's a good plugin called "Google Translate".  Translate the following page: http://retropc.net/gimons/rascsi/

Towards the bottom you'll find the direct download link for the latest version of RaSCSI.  Here's the current version:  http://retropc.net/gimons/rascsi/rascsi147.zip

Hi There.

Long time since I last posted here.

I just assembled my RasSCSI Lite, and it is working - although I had a hard time to find the software on the internet.

I managed to find a copy in github, in case anyone needs also looking for this:

However, this is version 1.35.

I am looking to configure the network driver, and also the linux filesystem access drivers. For that, I need some more files, including a HDS image containing the drivers.

Has anyone got a backup of the newer versions of these software to share here with me? Also, would be nice to put them in here in our ftp for general availability.

I think it's basically a Dual 10k Ohm Alps potentiometer similarly to this one


but with a smaller stem, probably specially made for sharp or no longer produced.

I have replaced the one in my Expert by modifying the stem.
