    It's had steady progress over the course of the extended IndieGoGo campaign, hopefully it'll make it if it gets the usual spike in backers towards the end. They had a stretch goal of creating molds for new tank mouse shells, but I don't think that'll happen in this campaign (I'm all in if Philippe does it separately later on though :D)

    That's great! Some big players maybe put in some pre-orders or something.

    Great news for the Amiga community!

    shame they are all 030's though. Nice base to work from though, but two of the motherboards have quite a bit of battery acid damage.

    Does anyone have tips for getting multi disk games to work with a gotek? My mate and I have been trying with cortex & FlashFloppy firmware on A500 to get Street Rod loading, 9/10 times it bombs out on the disk swap.

    I've tried the disk images in WinUAE and it loads perfect every time.

    Also tried using XCOPY to copy the image from the gotek on to real floppy disks, but they wouldn't boot, must be missing a step.

    Play around with the jumper on the gotek, that fixed it for me.

    Street rod 1 is a bit weird, it only works reliably on KS 1.x with 1mb. I'm sure the original works on 512k but I reckon the cracked versions take up a little more ram. Maybe try some other versions. On KS 2.x it won't boot at all but will load from WB fine. I hope that helps.

    Thanks guys, we both have extra ram soldered in bringing it up to 1mb. I've tried on 1.3 and 3.1, noticed also the game crashes pretty much straight away on 3.1.

    I've done some research in to the jumper settings, so it seems the amiga requires the READY signal to be sent by the drive, jumper setting JA on the gotek should enable this however it puts my gotek in to USB update mode, might have the wrong version. Will get my mate to check his and see what his gotek drives do.

    Otherwise the only jumper I have set is S0 (for DF0) which works fine for single disk games.

    hit $2k easy - probably more.

    did everyone see Dan Wood's great CD32 vid? Still kick myself for not buying one years back when they were affordable.

    Well at least I now know how much my A4000 in proper working order is now worth!

    They sold for $1836. Seller would've got more if split and definitely if tested and working. Good luck to the buyer!

    You can already see most of those will need serious work around the battery area. Hope they know what they've got themselves in for!

    Hoping it was one of the SAUG guys so I can see them get repaired at the club meetings...

    Yeah great video, love my CD32/TF328...I got the CD32 for around low two hundreds delivered from Amibay late last year, eBay prices are silly from what I observed unless you luck out.
