X68000 uses some lines for some special operation that the HxC not has. There is the most GND.This is well known That's why I designed my device which can handle some of these proprietary signals.

Quote from: skpstmgs on March 23, 2019, 11:34:07 amI just checked the HxC2001 website and the compatibility list has a note next to the X68000 that says "For full support (auto eject?), need an additional function board (work in progress)".
Quote from: caius on March 23, 2019, 05:10:50 pmCurrently HxC is NOT fully compatilble with X68000 machines because the proprietary (or at least the most important ones) FDD output signals are NOT emulated by HxC.It can perhaps run very few games but the loading times will be very slow. My solution takes care of some signals emulating them and allow you to successfully load all sotware.I will start a proper thread as soon as some further testing will be done
Quote from: DejahThoris on March 23, 2019, 05:44:59 pm I greatly appreciate that you're working on it. That's fantastic. In that case I'll keep hold of the HxC for sure.I'm just a bit miffed that the main page for the HxC just straight lists it as compatible, and I bought it based off of that information.
